Ford Henderson, a true "Lowcountry boy" grew up in Charleston, SC. Almost all of his free time was spent with his beloved lab, Quincy, or on the water doing what he did best - fishing! Ford had a passion for life and all things outdoors. He attended Clemson University where he was studying Agriculture Mechanization.
The goal of Fishing For Ford is to celebrate Ford's life through a fishing tournament while raising money for a scholarship at Clemson University for an Agriculture student. We are excited for the opportunity to reward a student for their hard work!
The 2021 Tournament will be held on August 7, 2021! Please see the "Events" tab for more information! We can't wait to see the fish!
Whether or not you choose to fish, we would like to encourage you to consider becoming a tournament sponsor. Donations can be made in the form of prizes for category winners and raffles or a monetary donation. The "Donate" button below is a great way to make a monetary donation but other options may be discussed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations are tax-deductible. Individual, group, or business donations are all welcome. Please check out the sponsors tab for more information on becoming a sponsor!
We have officially hit our goal for tournament endowment! But in order to maximize the amount of money a student will receive, we are going to continue to raise money for the cause.
A big thank you to all of our wonderful 2021 sponsors!
