Our 10th Annual Tournament benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital took place Thursday, May 29, 2014


Our 2nd Annual Tournament benefiting Helen DeVos Children's Hospital took place Tuesday, July 8, 2014


The Tri-Cities Kiwanis Salmon Tournaments combine a fun day of energetic and enjoyable fishing for everyone involved, and all net proceeds of this event are donated to our beneficiaries.

Tournament sponsors are assigned to professionally operated charter boats for a morning of exciting salmon fishing. Each boat holds up to six participants, and sponsors can invite family, friends, employees, customers … or simply support with their donation. The tournament also offers fishing opportunities for young patients currently undergoing treatment at DeVos Children's Hospital, and sponsorship of these boats is available.

The tournament is run by volunteers from Tri-Cities Kiwanis, and food and prizes are donated by West Michigan individuals and businesses.

Boats Depart at 5:45 a.m. and 6:15 a.m. from Chinook Pier, Grand Haven. Refreshments are available before departure. Boats Return at 11:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. to Chinook Pier and all fish are sent to weigh-in. A hot dog lunch is provided. A short program precedes the awarding of prizes.

Grand prizes are awarded for the largest fish in Sponsor and Patient VIP categories. Recent prizes have included boat cruises, chartered fishing trips, and even a brand new kayak!

Inclement weather: Our charter captains make the call on Tournament morning if the weather is not suitable. In the event the tournament is canceled, each set of participants may set up a separate day and time to fish with their boat captain.
