Grab your buds and join us on June 9th and 10th for the most Unique Fish and Golf Tournament around! Come spend time with Seattle Seahawks, DeShawn Shead, and his NFL friends as he hosts the 9th Annual Fish & Chip Celebrity Weekend bringing NFL players to Spokane. This one-of-a-kind event pairs current NFL players with guests to fish and golf together for two days to raise much needed funds for local charities. HOPE is one of the two major local nonprofits.
