Our event in Astoria, Or features some of the best salmon fishing in the world in a city full of people who love the outdoors. This event features an even bigger fishing derby, followed by an amazing Chef's dinner, huge military presence and live auction in a beautiful area.
I would like to personally invite you to join me in supporting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Semper Fi & Amaericas Fund and the USO through a salmon fishing tournament scheduled for August 20-21, 2023 in Astoria, Oregon.
Joining me will be local celebrities and military personnel, all here to honor the heroes that fight for our freedoms everyday. This two-day event kicks off with a Captain’s Dinner featuring some of the best chefs from New Orleans. All of this is followed the next day by a salmon tournament.
During my time as a football coach for the United States Military Academy at West Point, I had the honor of meeting and coaching outstanding students who serve to protect our country and allow us the freedom to have events like this. The drive to start this organization and give back was fueled by a visit to the hospital to see a former player who was severely injured during his tour. This event is very personal to the entire Black & Gold team which is driven by the entire Brock family, some of which are current active military.
We need your help to make this event successful and have no doubt, once you join the unique Black & Gold event family, you will be just as invested as we are. We would love to have you on board as a sponsor and are also open to other ways you may want to be involved. Thank you so much for taking the time and we look forward to seeing you in September.
