SOUTH BUFFALO - On Thursday, June, 20 the Upstate New York Chapter of the National MS Society will host a Walleye Fishing Tournament at the Buffalo Small Boat Harbor on Fuhrman Blvd. Join our local MS chapter for a day of catch-and-release fishing on boats fully stocked with bait and navigated by a professional charter fishing captain.

The day starts with a continental breakfast shore-side at 7 am before setting out on beautiful Lake Erie. Once on the waters you can fish, relax and enjoy the beauty of the lake. Lunch and beverages will be offered aboard the boat. The captain will bring you back in time for dinner, which will be provided during the awards ceremony.

Prizes will be given to the person to catch the most walleye, as well as trophies for the top three participants who catch the largest number of fish. Didn’t catch any fish at the event? Not to worry. You can still be in the running for a trophy as awards will be given for the top three fish-tales.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple Sclerosis is thought to affect more than 2.1 million people worldwide. MS is an autoimmune disease that can be difficult to diagnose and is significantly more common in women than men. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. MS is not directly inherited, but genetics can play an important role in who gets the disease. People who are diagnosed after age 50 tend to have a more steadily progressive course that primarily affects their ability to walk. The National MS Society, including our local Buffalo chapter, helps people with MS address the daily challenges of living with the condition.

If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please contact Maria Batt at Maria.Batt@nmss.org, or call 634-2573. If you would like to participate you can purchase your ticket for the fishing tournament at www.msupstateny.org.

So get your fishing pole and fishing tales ready and meet the rest of the anglers at the Small Boat Harbor located at 1111 Fuhrmann Blvd. on June 20 at 7 am for a day of fun to benefit a worth-while organization.
