POST FALLS, ID - Cabela's Incorporated, the World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, will be a lead sponsor of the Michael Roos Foundation Fish and Chip Tournament for the third consecutive year. The event will be held June 7-9 in Post Falls.
The Michael Roos Foundation, led by NFL Pro Bowl left tackle Michael Roos, will host more than 30 NFL players at the tournament, which teams professional bass fishermen with NFL athletes and community members to fish, golf and share stories. Proceeds will go to local children's charities.
The three-day event will kick off June 7 with an autograph session at Cabela's retail store in Post Falls, followed by a day on the links and a day on the Lake Coeur D'Alene. Previous participants include NFL players Randy Moss, Vince Young, Jake Locker and Jarred Allen, as well as former player and Hall-of-Famer Dick Butkus.
"The Fish and Chip Tournament has been a big hit since day one and Cabela's is proud to be a part of the team once again," said Pete Marion, Cabela's retail event coordinator. "We expect a great event and look forward to playing host come June."
Founded by NFL Pro Bowl left tackle Michael Roos, the Michael Roos Foundation has helped the Special Olympics of Washington, Boys & Girls Clubs and The Children' s Village in Coeur d'Alene. This year the major beneficiary of the annual Fish & Chip is the Boys and Girls Clubs of Spokane County and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lewiston.
"The generosity of Cabela's and the relationships we have formed over the past three years between Cabela's and the Fish and Chip participants are pretty special," Roos said. "We are very thankful for Cabela's and everyone who donates their time and resources to the foundation. It makes a big difference in the lives of many children."
