TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — A fishing tournament in Tuscaloosa is reeling in donations to benefit special needs children.
The Tuscaloosa News reports (http://bit.ly/11tcynN ) the bass tournament Saturday at the Retreat at Lake Tamaha will ask participants to make donations when they sign up. The money will go to the University of Alabama's Rise School, a program to help children with special needs.
The tournament, being hosted by Westervelt Communities real estate, offers a $100 grand prize for the person who catches the most fish. Second place is $50.
