If a trip to your nearest Bass Pro Shops isn't good enough, Bass Pro Shops has some great activities for the entire family planned the next two weekends.
Experience the Outdoors
With the arrival of summer, it’s time to get your family outside! Bass Pro Shops in Atlanta invites families to discover, or share, the joy of fishing during Gone Fishing events June 10-11 and June 17-18. Free in-store family activities include learning how to cast a reel at a catch-and-release pond – complete with a “first fish” certificate and free photo downloads, seminars and informative Gone Fishing guides with tips for family-friendly fishing outings, as well as special giveaways. In an effort to inspire future generations to enjoy, love and conserve the great outdoors, Bass Pro Shops will also donate 40,000 rods and reels to nonprofit partners nationwide to get more kids outside. Join us in store, bring the family, and when you hit the water this summer use the hashtag #gonefishing! For hours and details visit BassPro.com/GoneFishing.
Gone Fishing National Donation Day
During a national donation day, which was Thursday, June 8, 40,000 rods and reels are being donated to nonprofit organizations that connect kids to the outdoors and help get more kids outside. The gently used rods and reels were donated by customers and collected earlier this year. Donors received a discount on new fishing gear. Since 2012, Bass Pro Shops has donated more than 250,000 items to youth-focused nonprofit organizations including Boys and Girls Club and Boy Scouts of America.
The store location is located in Lawrenceville at the Sugarloaf Mills shopping center (5900 Sugarloaf Pkwy, Lawrenceville, GA).
This year in the Atlanta market, Bass Pro Shops is partnered with Teach A Child to Fish and the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta. They will be donating fishing rods and reels to both organizations.
Don't forget Father's Day is June 18. Bass Pro Shops has a huge Father's Day sale ongoing. Visit www.basspro.com.
