Chase'n Fish Fundraiser with Cash Payout

Link to

Chase'n Fish is an annual fishing tournament held in honor of Chase Herman Lamkin, a child who entered this world at 1:23am on October 7, 2017 as one of God’s precious angels.  He weighed 1 lb 12 oz and was 13 inches long.  The cause of Chase’s death is still unknown.

Chase'n Fish's hope for this tournament is to help raise awareness of the struggles parents face with the untimely death of an infant, as well as to highlight the work of the organization Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS), a non-profit photography organization that provides free portrait sessions to families experiencing such a loss.  For further information on the mission and vision of NILMDTS, please refer to the organization’s website.

Optional (but encouraged) additional fundraising

In addition to the entry fee for the “Prize Money Pot” 10% of all team monetary fundraising will be applied to the “Prize Money Pot”.  In order to be eligible to compete for these additional funds placed through donations, a team must fundraise a minimum of $250.  All other proceeds through fundraising will be directly donated to “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep”, a non-profit organization that supports parents who experience an early infant loss.


All teams, regardless of fundraising amounts, will be eligible for the “Biggest Bass Pot” and the entry fee “Prize Money Pot”.


Start times will be staggered and determined upon dollar amount raised by team.  Amount will reflect both monetary donations and silent auction items (retail values).
