 Our event in Portland, Or features some of the best salmon fishing in the world in a city full of people who love the outdoors. It's also Stan Brock's home town, so the heart runs deep here. 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 just outside of the city on Sauvie's Island.

I would like to personally invite you to join me in supporting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the Green Beret Foundation and the USO through a salmon fishing tournament scheduled for September 6-7, 2019 in Portland, 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 where the winning boat will receive $20,000.

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.
