– on mille lacs lake – 

Freedom Fishing Foundation is holding its first fishing tournament and it is going to be something special! The Suits & Salutes Fishing Tournament will take place October 1st at Izaty’s on Mille Lacs Lake.

Money raised from the tournament will enable us to take more vets on our impactful fishing trips. In the process of raising money to meet our mission, we’ve come up with a unique opportunity for corporate sponsors to make an impact within their company.

This exclusive tournament is limited to 10 boats, each boat will have a three-person team consisting of a high-end guide, a corporate sponsor representative and a vet of their choosing from within their company. This is a phenomenal opportunity for companies to support our greater veteran community as well as recognize a veteran within their own ranks.

We’ve got some of the best fishing guides in the state on board, along with a fun local celebrity, so the Suits & Salutes are sure to have a memorable experience!


Why This Matters

Veteran and military families sacrifice much for our way of life. For many that comes with a cost. The founders of Freedom Fishing Foundation experienced the benefits of getting out on the water and want to share that with as many as possible. Each sponsorship will take over 20 deserving individuals on a potentially life-changing fishing!

Corporate Sponsorship

Boat sponsorship is “Name Your Price” with a minimum of $7500. The first ten companies to sign on will be treated to a dinner and lodging the evening of September 30th at the Izaty’s Golf Resort, fishing with a premier guide 7AM-11AM on October 1st, and some fun swag.
Friday night’s dinner will include an auction and the chance to bid on having local celebrity and outdoorsman, Ron Schara, in your boat.


If you’re not the corporate type but still wish to support our mission, we appreciate all donations. On average it takes $350 for us to take a guest fishing and each dollar donated helps us cast lifelines.


Cast Lifelines

Help military & veteran families live healthier and more fulfilling lives.
