For over 40 years, the St. Jude Open Bass Classic has hosted thousands of sportsmen in support of helping children fight cancer. MaxxSouth is honored to help bring awareness and support to such a prestigious event!
The St. Jude Open Bass Classic started when a member of the Memphis Bass Club’s daughter was being treated at St. Jude. He and his friends wanted to give back to the hospital in some way, so they decided to help raise money by creating the tournament and gathering the Memphis fishing community around the hospital. With the support of the mid-south fishing community, this event has helped raise over 4 million dollars for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
The tournament will be held at Sardis Lake, MS, on Sunday, May 28th. Check-in for the event will be on Saturday, May 27th from 1:00PM – 3:00PM at the Batesville Civic Center. The St. Jude Bass Classic is proud to announce that they will be awarding the top 40 positions this year with pay-outs ranging from $100.00 to a grand prize of $5,000.00!
Register for the event here to help St. Jude, and for a chance to claim your top 40 finish prize!
