Greer Centennial Lions Club bass fishing tourney to benefit students


Greer Centennial Lions Club wants you to bait your hooks to benefit young children.

Organizers are having a fishing tournament and need more participants to help pay for students at Chandler Creek Elementary School.

Member Alison Rauch said last year’s tournament helped the organization purchase a glaucoma screening machine.

This year, money raised from the bass fishing tournament will go towards purchasing glasses for students to boost academic success and self-esteem.

Rauch said the Lions Club is always looking for spots to set up the glaucoma screening machine and they’re also always looking for new members.

The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at Mutt’s BBQ Restaurant in Greer.

The fishing tournament is April 6. 

The entry fee is $100 for up to two people per boat.

Launch order is determined by order of registration, so partcipants are encouraged to get applications in early.

There are 10 tournament winners with first place taking a $1,000 prize.
