Pittsgrove NJ, January 19, 2021. The Ike Foundation® is proud to announce its first EVER Telethon. Mike Iaconelli and crew will be hosting an old school, Jerry Lewis style Telethon to support The Ike Foundation®, on Sunday, January 31st at 6:oo pm EST.
The Ike Foundation® hosts several fundraising events each year to support their efforts to get more kids fishing and to provide college scholarships to qualified high school seniors. Covid-19 restrictions forced the restructuring of those events for all of 2020 as well as the cancellation of the 2021 Scholarship Dinner. That event alone hosts more than 300 supporters and raises over $25,000 for college scholarships. The loss of this event has severely impacted the Scholarship fund but The Ike Foundation® has not been deterred from its mission. By pivoting to an online event, Supporters can join the Telethon remotely via Facebook and Instagram Live for four awesome hours of laughs, live music, talks with bass fishing legends, pro athletes, and surprise guests. In addition, The Ike Foundation® has partnered with 32Auctions, an online fundraising platform focused on helping groups raise money to support their philanthropic cause. The auction is live NOW, winners will be announced during The Ike Foundation® Telethon. You can go to The Ike Foundation's Auction Page to buy a chance to win amazing auction baskets loaded with swag, fishing gear and more donated by companies like AFTCO, Abu Garcia, Berkley, The Bass University, Molix, Spike-It, Heshi Socks, Panther Vision, TH Marine, Tackle Warehouse, Flambeau, Traeger Grills and more.For more information, please please complete the contact form
