The Ike Foundation announced that Mike Iaconelli and crew will host a fundraising telethon Sunday (Jan. 31) at 6 p.m. EST.
The Foundation hosts several fundraising events each year to support efforts to get more kids fishing and to provide college scholarships to qualified high school seniors. COVID-19 restrictions forced the restructuring of those events for all of 2020, as well as the cancellation of the 2021 Scholarship Dinner. That event alone hosts more than 300 supporters and raises over $25,000 for college scholarships.
Supporters can join the telethon remotely via Facebook or Instagram Live for four hours of laughs, live music, conversations with bass fishing legends, pro athletes and surprise guests. Donations can be made at The Ike Foundation website.
In addition, the Foundation has partnered with 32Auctions, an online fundraising platform focused on helping groups raise money to support their philanthropic cause. The auction is live now and winners will be announced during telethon. Supporters can go to https://www.32auctions.com/TheIkeFoundation2021 to buy a chance to win baskets loaded with swag, fishing gear and more donated by companies such as AFTCO, Abu Garcia, Berkley, The Bass University, Molix, Spike-It, Heshi Socks, Panther Vision, TH Marine, Tackle Warehouse, Flambeau, Traeger Grills and more.
