CITGO Auctioning Bassmaster Professional Angler Fishing Jerseys
HOUSTON - Have you ever wanted to own one of Gerald Swindle's colorful tournament jerseys? Now is your chance. CITGO, as a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, is offering five tournament-worn jerseys from your favorite professional anglers. All proceeds will benefit the MDA.
Just log onto Ebay.com, type in the words, 'angler jersey,' and you will have the opportunity to bid on a tournament jersey worn and autographed by Bassmaster superstars Gerald Swindle, Marty Stone, Shaw Grigsby, Zell Rowland or Skeet Reese. Bids start at $225 dollars and are sold at no reserve.
"During the Classic, I had an opportunity to meet a lot of the children afflicted with this terrible disease," said Swindle, the 2004 Bassmaster Angler of the Year. "It really brought home to me the significance of what we are doing here. If you've ever wanted to wear one of my CITGO tournament uniforms, just log onto Ebay and make a bid. It's important."
This is the Ebay portion of CITGO's successful 'Weigh In for MDA' event held just prior to last month's Bassmaster Classic in Pittsburgh, Pa. That event, hosted by Swindle, raised more than $30,000 to help fight muscular dystrophy.
