The Roho Charitable Trust and Fishing Club is selling tickets for their annual fishing tournament at the Beach Island Resort and Marina. One hundred percent of the money raised from ticket sells is used for the annual Roho Christmas Shopping Spree, which allows a select number children in the Tri-State area to buy Christmas presents.


Tickets are $5 each or $150 for 30 tickets, which supports a child for the shopping spree. The $150 allows the child to shop for $110 in clothes and $40 in toys, plus a pair of shoes donated by Walmart of Middlesboro.


Those who purchase tickets are registered for the fishing tournament. Winners will receive a cash prize. Door prizes will also be available. Drawing will be held on Sunday at closing. Winners do not have to be present to win.
