Providence Marketing Group Team Members, Glenn Walker and Jack Gavin Contribute to an Incredible Fundraising Effort for the Children of St. Jude

Pepin, WI. (May 7th, 2024) – The 26th Annual Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic recently held in Wabasha, MN on the Mississippi River has been one of the most successful fund raisers to date. This annual bass fishing tournament centers around fundraising for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital and over the past 26 years, the tournament has raised over $7.6 million for the kids of St. Jude and has become a nationally recognized success.

Anglers from across the Midwest, including Providence Marketing Group associates Glenn Walker and Jack Gavin, came together to raise over $870,000 during this two-day event.  All proceeds from the tournament benefit St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for the efforts that are needed to help their children beat cancer.

“You would be hard pressed to find a better cause than that of raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital,” stated PMG VP of Operations and Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic Tournament Committee member, Glenn Walker.  “An incredible facility that does whatever it takes to help children and their families during the most difficult time of their lives. For this reason, the participants of the Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic continually put forth an amazing effort, and I am honored to play a small role in the success of this amazing event.”

Glenn Walker and his tournament partner, Jeremiah Shaver raised over $50,000 this year, which put them as the fourth highest fundraising team.  The duo also saw success on the water, by catching a two-day limit of bass (12), for a total weight of 39.67 lb’s putting them in seventh place.  Walker has fished the event for 13 years and in that time has raised over $208,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Jack Gavin and tournament partner, Timmy Peterzen have fished the event now for five years, and this year they set a new personal best in fundraising, by bringing in over $12,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.  Gavin and Peterzen in their short time have seen great success in the tournament and continued that this year with a 21st place finish with 12-bass weighing 36.8 lb’s.

Next year is sure to be another great success when the tournament arrives back in Wabasha on May 3rd – 4th. Anglers will look to meet heightened fundraising goals and Providence Marketing Group will surely be well represented yet again at this wonderful event.
