The EMS Week Bass Tournament raised $2,500 this year for their two local charities: $2,000 was given to the Paramedic Scholarship Fund and $500 to the Forgotten Child Fund. The Southeast EMS Director's Association Paramedic Scholarship fund provides funding to a student yearly toward schooling in the paramedic program. The Forgotten Child Fund is a wonderful charity that provides toys at Christmas to less fortunate children in the Chattanooga/Hamilton County area. This year, there were 40 boats in the tournament. I want to extend my sincere thanks to all the sponsors who make this charity event possible!
