Winners have been announced from the FLW Will Fish For Kids Children’s Miracle Network Tournament, according to a news release Friday.
“I want to do what I can to help children as I think everyone here does,” said Pro-Angler Shirley Crain. She’s the honorary chairman of the event.
A total of 60 boats participated, and the winners were Tim Malone of Gatlinburg, Tenn. and Bob Bolton, as associate with Walmart.
Anglers stayed a day longer to compete in the charity tournament.
“All of the fishermen that are participating are giving up their time, they are staying over Monday to fish the tournament when we all have busy schedules and we’re normally on the road right after we fish but we’re staying over,” Crain said.
The total amount of money raised this year from the silent auction and charity tournament was $75,719.
All of the proceeds benefit the Dental Clinic at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
