SPARTANBURG Co., S.C. (WSPA) — The first annual Bass Fishing Tournament for Veterans will be held Monday on Lake Bowen.
Organizer John Fravel said inspiration for the tournament comes from a Veterans Day Fishing Tournament held annually at Lake Anna in Virginia.
Prizes will be given out for first, second and third place with a top prize for Veterans only.
Veterans fish free, while the entry fee into the tournament is $50 for everyone else.
Money collected from the fundraiser will be donated to Operation Restoration. The organization benefits veterans community development programs and helps support a seven bedroom house in Spartanburg for homeless veterans.
