Fishing fundraiser aims to help Marathon Co. Humane Society

Posted:
LAKE DUBAY (WAOW) -

Anglers gathered on Lake Du Bay Saturday to take part in the first Grand Slam Fishing Tournament.

Organizers said the event started this year as a way to raise money for the Marathon County Humane Society.

Dozens of people hit the water in search of the perfect catch and organizers said they were happy with the turnout.

"I hope that a lot of people see that the animals need help as well, they don't have a voice, so if we can raise a bunch of money and maybe people will bring dog food, cat food, whatever the case may be, raise a bunch of money for it, we'd be happy," said Dave Strebig, Organizer.

Organizers hope to raise about $2,000 for the Marathon County Humane Society.

They plan on holding the event again next year to benefit another area organization.
