Folks, I've run out of whitty things to say... bottom line is we need your support. The Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family is just that, through finacial donations we adopt a family for the holiday season and provide them with the funds to keep the heat on, buy food, and hopefully if we raise enough they will be able to buy presents for their kids. This years family doesn't even have a car, our support will be life changing. Getting to and from work in a nothern Illinois winter is brutal on a bicycle... Last years fundraising would be enough to buy a decent used vehicle.

I know everyone is tight right now, the holidays are here and we are buying for our own. We are about a thousand dollars behind last years fund raising. That may seem like a lot but if just 50 members give $20 that's $1000, we have over 50 users online right now and nearly 300 lurkers at the time of this post.

I don't want to beg, but PLEASE we need your support, plus you get chances to win awesome prize packages. I know you have many places to give this time of year, we're just asking you to not spend that coffee money just for one week and donate it to a family that may not make it through the winter without our help.

The Ultimate Bass Adopt a Family has been announced just click here to read their story

I got behind on the list, please make sure your name is here

Thank you so much to everyone that has given, some of you have been very generous. I am extremely amazed at the generousity of the UB members every year. We're a little behind our normal fundraising but I hope this is because everyone is weighing all the presents they will buy against budgets. Everyone got paid on the 1rst so take a look folks, we need your help, $20 isn't that much to give. You won't even miss it, but collectively with everyone here on UB, it's a life changer.

Here are all the Deets from the first post. What you can win, how to get tickets

Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family Raffle

As many of you long timers know, Ultimate Bass holds a raffle to raise money for a needy family each year. So far, we've helped 6 families over the past 6 Holiday Seasons. These families typically had extreme medical bills that prevented a joy filled holiday season. The recipients can use the funds however they see fit. This family will be picked from suggestions of the membership, by the moderators, with Mother Nature having the final vote.

So first the raffle. I am late getting started (as usual) but so far the raffle consists of:

Ultimate Bass Adopt A Family Raffle Prizes

First place prize:
Gary donated a Dobyns Rods Sierra Series casting rod
UB is donating a quantum casting reel
Mr Twister is donating  $100 worth of plastics
$50 worth NuTech Lures donated by Lee Smith Custom Rods

Second Place:
VRX Fishing Package –
6 Rod Gloves
3 Bait Gloves
2 X Zone Muscle Back Craws Grn Pump Red Flk and Grn Pump Blk Flk
1 X Zone Rebel Chunk Black Blue Lam
1 X Zone MB Hawg Hunter Okeechobee Craw
1 X Zone Adrenaline Bug Summer Craw
1 X Zone Punisher Punch Craw Black Blue Flake
1 X Zone Ned Zone Bass Candy
1 X Zone Whiplash Shad Smoke Peral Laminate
1 X Zone MB Fat Finesse Worm #309
1 X Zone True Center Stick Watermelon Red & Green

Third Place:
K9 Fishing Package –
200 yard spool 12 lb test K9 Pro 100 (100% Fluorocarbon)
550 yard spool 14 lb test K9 Fluoro
K9 Fishing Hat
K9 Fishing Decal

Fourth Place:
NuTech Lures Prize Pack

Fifth Place:
10 packs of Mister Twister Baits - Mike Cork’s Favorites

Tickets are your basic Raffle Ticket. Ticket cost:

1 ticket for $5
5 tickets for $20
30 tickets for $100


We take all forms of money but prefer Pay Pal. You can mail a check (please let me know it's coming), did I say we prefer Pay Pal, and if you want to use a CC we can send you a Pay Pal invoice that you can pay without having a Pay Pal account. See the bottom of the post for further information.

I will message you the numbers of your tickets. You'll need to hang onto these numbers. On December 19th we will draw the winners and post the ticket numbers. I'm hoping to do the drawing on Facebook Live to ensure the integrity of the raffle, but that is still to be determined as we need to practice it LOL. (You do not have to have Facebook in order to win, winning numbers will be published on the Ultimate Bass forums)

The funds recipient - We will take nominations over the next two weeks. Please look to your Ultimate Bass neighbors first and then to your local neighborhood. The recipient does not have to be a UB member, but we like to make sure we don't miss one of our own. Please submit a nomination to your moderators or Community Diplomats here on the site.


How to Pay for Tickets


Mailing Address:

Ultimate Bass
C/O Adopt a Family
5422 Amber Circle
Benton La 71006

Pay Pal address

First and foremost, save everyone the fees and send funds as "Friends and Family"
Mike@Ultimatebass.com
Please put your “SCREEN NAME” and “Adopt a Family” in the notes section.

Credit Card

Our only option here is to send you an invoice via Pay Pal, you do not have to have a Pay Pal account to pay the invoice. However, there is a 3% surcharge and since this is a fund raiser, I'll split it with you.

Disclaimer: We have to have one so here it goes. All rules of this raffle are subject to change by site administration. Ultimate Bass is not responsible for the delivery of prizes; however we will provide our best efforts to ensure winners receive their prizes in a timely manner

We had a great day yesterday that really changed the outlook of our totals, yesterday alone we raised almost $600. Just over halfway to that $1k I was talking about.

One more good day like yesterday and we are going to really be able to help this family out. Lipripper has eyes on the family and they are having to borrow money for "groceries" this week. If you've ever been there, it's a hard thing to ask for but with a 1 and 4 year old, you can go hungery but they can't.

$20 in the hands of somone that lives broke, or at best paycheck to paycheck, can buy a lot of groceries.

We're getting there but still a little behind prvious years. With just 7 more days to go I need everyone to get with their friends and close family and ask them to help. You're brothers, sisters, close fishing friends can all buy tickets, give them my email address, have them send a Pay Pal with their email in the comments and I'll get them their numbers, it's that easy.

One more good day like Monday and we are going to really be able to help this family out. Lipripper has eyes on the family and they are having to borrow money for "groceries" this week. Both mom and dad work, but with daycare and trying to get the car fixed it's just not working. If you've ever been there, it's a hard thing to ask for money to buy food. But with a 1 and 4 year old you have too.

$20 in the hands of somone that lives broke, or at best paycheck to paycheck, can buy a lot of groceries.

Thank you very much and thanks to everyone for all your generous giving. I have to bite my lip to stop from telling them what's going on. My daughter Robin and her husband Jorge (who live in our basement ) go over on some days to watch the boys over at their house because both Nick and Adriana have to work. They was over there this weekend babysitting and Robin just told me that there was hardly any food in the house. We are going to invite them over one night when they both have the same day or evening off and give them the money everyone has given and we are going to try and take a short video or at least some pictures to share with all of y'all right here on Ultimate Bass so y'all can share in the joy of making their Christmas a Marry Christmas for sure.

$20 in the hands of somone that lives broke, or at best paycheck to paycheck, can buy a lot of groceries. Laurie and I made a pot of chili and corn bread muffins for $13 dollars last night. Laurie, myself and our two grandsons will eat on that at least twice more. If you think $20 doesn't go a long way... Chili, beans and ham, gumbo, are just a couple meals that feed a family more than one night and are less than a twenty dollar bill.

Mike,

Since I was going to donate again anyway, I have a challenge for the UB members.  Instead of buying myself more tackle that I don’t need, I’m going to put that money to good work helping someone who needs it.

I will match every dollar donated between now and the  cutoff.

I lived the life of the young couple we are helping when my kids were little.

Even though it was decades ago, their story brought back the feelings of desperation I had when I was fired with 2 kids under 4 years old and my wife was a stay at home Mom. Long story short, that was the event that lead me to starting my own business, but in the beginning it was a lot of PB&J’s and Mac and Cheese - for years.

Let’s raise enough money so they can at least buy a beater car to get to work.

WOW that's a serious challange. Folks you can't let this go unchecked :shocking:

We have until the 19th. All you guys that gave twenty already, if you can find it to do it again you'll be giving a total of $60. Your earlier twenty, twenty now and the twenty that FD will match.

It's up to all of you, with a challange like this, we can definitely get this family into a used car!!!

BTW, FD thank you, this is over the top awesome!!!
