Ronald McDonald House gears up for 31st Annual Ouachita River Big Bass Tournament
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The Ronald McDonald House is preparing for its 31st Annual Ouachita River Big Bass Tournament.
The tournament will be held June 11 - June 12, 2022 at Lazarre Park in West Monroe. The proceeds from the tournament will benefit RMS’s newest partnership with St. Francis Medical Center - “Ronald McDonald House in a Hospital.”
“We’re going to move our house into the hospital, which will be so wonderful for the families because they can just go out the door of the Ronald McDonald House and walk across the aisle and be right there in neonatal to check on their babies,” says Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Georgia Street.
The house is expected to be built inside St. Francis Medical Center.
The fisherman who catches the biggest bass at the tournament will receive $10,000. Anyone interested in participating in this year’s tournament can register online at RMH Big Bass Tournament. Street says a fishing license is not required to fish in this tournament.
