The 2nd Annual Fishing for Frankie Bass Fishing Tournament will take place on Aug. 28 at the Pier 90 boat launch.


Check-in will be at 4:30 a.m. with weigh-in at noon. The entry fees are $100 per team and $10 Big Bass (optional). Entry forms are available at Outcast Marine, Des Allemands First National Bank, Majoria’s, Roussel’s Hunting and Fishing, Outdoor Express and Pier 90.


The event is hosted by the Throw Me A Cure Relay Team, South Louisiana Trail and family and friends of Frankie. The event raises money for Frankie Champagne Jr., a native of Edgard and resident of Luling, who was diagnosed with non small-cell lung cancer in 2007 and has been unable to work since June 2009 due to the effects of the cancer treatment.


The tournament is also looking for sponsors to donate money or door prizes.


For more information on entry or sponsorship, contact Audrey Raziano at (985)703-0135 or (985)785-8411.
