Default Salty Kids Fishfest is back for 2019!

After a very successful first year we will again be hosting the Salty Kids Children's Rodeo in Grand Isle this summer. The tournament will be Aug. 2-3 at the Sand Dollar Marina. Just like in year one, all of our proceeds for 2019 go towards funding the trauma room in the ER of the new Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge. This is a cause that's very important to me following a traumatic accident that left my daughter in critical condition, and on life support 4 years ago. Funding the trauma room is a way we decided to give back and support the institution that saved my daughter's life. Hopefully with our support many lives will be saved in their new facility!

Last year we had right at 300 kids participate which was phenomenal for a first year rodeo with sub-par weather. Of course we are looking to build upon that for 2019, and hopefully the hull truth community comes through again. We had a great time meeting forum members last year, and even had quite a few sponsor or rodeo--Thanks drobish, unberlievable, pointfisher, Striker Tackle, pooldoo, RUDE ATTITUDE, cuzzon, CoCo Crazy and many others that I'm sure I'm leaving out.

We welcome any and all support, but would LOVE to have you guys participate with your families-it's a fantastic event for a tremendous cause. PM me with any questions- and I'll also leave some links below with pertinent information.

This was a great time for everyone there last year. The kids really got to be the main attraction in a wonderful thing.
I plan to be back down there with the kids again this year.
