At Save Phace, we like to get involved in events that help the community, which is why we donated ten of our masks to the Clarks Hill Fish for Life Foundation earlier this spring. In a nutshell, the charity helps abused, neglected or underprivileged children in Columbia County (Georgia) by providing support for families in need. For example, proceeds from open-team bass fishing tournaments go toward meeting the charity’s goals. Here’s a deeper look at the Clarks Hill Fish for Life Foundation and how Save Phace has been involved in changing children’s lives.
About the Foundation
In 2010, a handful of avid bass fishermen in Augusta, Ga., came together for a single cause: use the sport of bass fishing to help less fortunate families and children in the community. The foundation is made up of concerned citizens who want to benefit the lives of others. It doesn’t exist to benefit any private parties, but simply to support those who are suffering. Today, three bass fishing tournaments are held per year in Columbia County to raise funds for the foundation’s efforts.

CEO Ron Brown expressed his thanks to Save Phace for the mask donations.
“I want to thank you and your company for all you have done,” Brown said. “We had a huge turnout; almost 400 kids attended the latest fishing tournament! It was a great day, and your Save Phace masks were a big hit. We made a lot of money on the raffle, and every winner was very happy with their mask. I wish you really knew how much your donation is helping the underprivileged children of the CSRA. Thanks again for your support!”
