Striper Marina announced that the 16th annual Striper Marina Striped Bass Tournament will take place May 28-May 31 out of Striper Marina in Barrington, Rhode Island.

This year’s theme is “Catching Fish to Help Children”, according to Al Elson, president of Striper Marina and organizer of the event, “with all the proceeds again going to support the Rhode Island Kiddie Shelters for Abused and Abandoned Children”. According to Elson, “The state covers the kids’ basic needs and what we are able to contribute from entry fees, raffles and T-shirt sales and cash donations goes to making their lives a little nicer. Over the years, the tournament has contributed over $62,000 to the shelters.”

For information about the tournament or to become a sponsor, contact Al Elson at (401) 245-6121. Entry forms are available at local bait shops and at Striper Marina.
