The Armed Services YMCA of Alaska is hosting their annual Combat Fishing Auction—and this year, it’s on the world-wide web. The Combat Fishing Auction helps to raise funds for the Armed Services YMCA Combat Fishing Tournament, which gives thanks to our Nation’s heroes by sending them deep-sea fishing with the Seward Fishing Charter Fleet.
Each year, a limited number of seats aboard the participating charter vessels are auctioned off, allowing military supporters the opportunity to fish with currently serving junior enlisted military members who are stationed in Alaska. It’s a unique and rewarding experience for both the service members, and the winning bidders who take part in this annual Alaskan adventure. This year, bidding will begin online, allowing supporters from anywhere in the world to be part of the ASYMCA Combat Fishing experience. The final stage of the Auction will have live bidders joining their online competitors at the Live Auction event on March 28th.
“The ASYMCA of Alaska is really excited about bringing the Auction to a wider audience,” said ASYMCA Marketing Director Lita Miller, “The Combat Fishing Tournament is truly a trip of a lifetime for our troops, and the supporters who win these auction seats get to experience it with them. Before this year, you had to be a local to get one of these seats. Now, anyone can get involved.”
