The 13th annual BassEye Celebrity Challenge, a fundraising dinner and fishing tournament to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Western New York, will take place next week at the NFTA Boat Harbor and the Atrium at Rich Products.
The event gets started Thursday evening in the newly renovated atrium, with cocktails, dinner and music by Heard of Buffalo; it continues Friday morning, when anglers can meet at the NFTA Boat Harbor dock for a one-day catch-and-release tournament in which anglers have the opportunity to fish for bass and walleye with a professional fishing guide.
Breakfast starts at 6 a.m. Friday, boats leave the harbor at 7 a.m. and return at 2 p.m.; an awards ceremony and dockside barbecue follows at 4 p.m.
Tickets for the Club BassEye event are $75 in advance and $85 at the door. Visit basseye.org for tickets or more information.
