13th Annual USMC LCpl J. Kyle Price Memorial Bass Tournament set for Saturday

REND LAKE, IL — Anglers from around the southern Illinois region will converge on Wayne Fitzgerrell Sailboat Harbor at Rend Lake this Saturday for the 13th Annual United States Marine Corps Lance corporal J. Kyle Price Memorial Foundation Bass Tournament. Lance corporal Price is a Woodlawn native who lost his life in 2006 while serving his country in Iraq.

Cheryl Price-Hunsell is the mother of Lance corporal Price. She says her son loved to fish with the whole family which is part of why they chose to host this tournament in his honor.

The pre-tournament meeting will start at 6:30am Saturday. You can all Price-Hunsell for more information at 618-978-3006 or check out @jkpmemorialfoundation on Facebook.

Funds raised at this tournament will go to honoring the service and sacrifice of all who have served our country, and to raising funds for various community and military related causes and organizations.
