Starting 6/9/13 Let the Bidding Begin
Auction of B.A.S.S. Elite Angler’s Jerseys to Benefit 26 Angels Foundation
The 26 Angels Foundation will be auctioning 23 B.A.S.S. Elite Angler’s jerseys to benefit the foundation. Elite anglers wore these jerseys at the first 2013 B.A.S.S. Elite Series tournament, on the Sabine River, in Texas. Most of the jerseys, that the anglers wore, in that tournament, had green in them. These autographed, green jerseys were the idea of Elite Pro, Tim Horton. Horton wanted to honor those who were killed on December 14, 2012, at The Sandy Hook School, in Newtown, CT. Green and white were the colors of The Sandy Hook School.
The jerseys will be auctioned on ebay from 6/9/13 through 7/6/13. Each week there will be a group of jerseys to be auctioned. The auction schedule is as followed:
Week 1 (6/9/13-6/15/13) Brent Chapman, Brian Snowden, John Murray, Gary Klein, Ott Defoe and Kevin LeDoux

About the 26 Angels Foundation:
For many people, December 14, 2012, was just another day. Adults went to work, children went to school and others went on with their everyday lives. That was so in Newtown, Connecticut, until a senseless event changed that day and the lives of many forever. From the loss of lives that day, many believe that 26 new angels were created. Since that tragic day, the Newtown community has begun to heal with the support of residents, families, friends and strangers.
A survivor, of the Newtown tragedy, Natalie Hammond, was the lead teacher at The Sandy Hook Elementary School. Natalie and her husband (Jerry) decided that they wanted to help the community that they both cared for greatly.
The 26 Angels Foundation, Inc. was their dream. The foundation was established with the help of fishermen and businessmen that have the goal of helping the Newtown community. The 26 Angels Foundation, Inc. will identify specific individuals, groups and causes, within the Newtown community, and offer assistance through the foundation’s fundraising efforts. The hope of the foundation is to provide peace of mind and support to all children, families, residents and the overall community of Newtown.
