Important update about Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic.

Out of an abundance of caution, this event has been postponed until September 11 – 13, 2020 for your personal safety and well-being. We appreciate your continued support of St. Jude and look forward to seeing you again soon. As a global research hospital, our hearts and prayers remain with families all across the world who are dealing firsthand with COVID-19.

  1. The overall health and wellness of our patients, families, staff, visitors, donors, volunteers and everyone within the communities we serve is fundamental to our mission at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Children with cancer and other diseases are immuno-compromised. That’s why we have worked proactively to safeguard our environment every day since we opened our doors nearly 60 years ago from the dangers of infectious diseases like COVID-19, a type of coronavirus.

    Your support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is important now, more than ever. Your investment supports clinical discoveries that save lives everyday here in the United States, and all across the globe. Thank you for your support.

 
 

22ND ANNUAL

DICK HILEY ST. JUDE BASS CLASSIC

This event has been postponed until
September 11 – 13, 2020
Wabasha, Minnesota

 
 
 

Join us for the 22nd annual Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic in Wabasha, Minnesota.

The tournament, which started with a small group of anglers, has become one of the only fishing tournaments in the country that supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Each year, anglers from across the upper mid-west unite their two passions — fishing and fundraising for the kids of St. Jude.

Register for the tournament to enjoy two full days of fishing on the Mississippi River, daily live weigh-ins and a dinner banquet featuring a local St. Jude patient family. Anglers will also have the opportunity to win the top prize of $40,000.

Over the past 21 years, this tournament has raised more than $3.8 million for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. All proceeds from this event will benefit St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
