Holes 4 Heroes:
Holes 4 Heroes is a special Ice Fishing Contest designed to honor our military.
At Holes 4 Heroes we work with all branches of the military to honor our troops, both at home and abroad. We set up a unique "Hole of Honor" which features a live video feed so that families of deployed soldiers can ice fish for free while being linked via video to their beloved soldier.
Proceeds support the ministries of Fishing for Life, including our GEM Fishing Camps, our summer High C's lake events, and our Deep C's Men's Groups.
It is our honor to allow all Military members, both current and former, and their immediate families to attend Holes 4 Heroes at no charge.
We have great prizes each year including many door prizes given away throughout the contest.
What a great event!
