After a year off, Striperfest will resume its fundraising effort on November
6, 2021, marking DanBlanton.com’s 24th event since 1997. However, please note this year’s format will be an off-site raffle fundraiser extravaganza only.
In 1997, the initial purpose of Striperfest was to acknowledge Dan Blanton for his contributions to fly fishing as well as to recognize the folks who participated in the fun and educational bulletin board that Dan established. Subsequently, a fundraising component, the famous Striperfest Raffle was added to the event in order to support the conservation and youth fly fishing efforts that was important to the bulletin board community.
Striperfest is committed to its philanthropic mission, even in this new era; and our raffle fundraising event plays an important role. Striperfest has granted well over $200,000 to protect California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (‘the California Delta’), to protect its fisheries and to promote youth fly fishing programs (see background). And despite
postponing last year because of the pandemic, Striperfest
still managed to donate funds to further its goals.
So, while there will not be a physical BBQ event at our beloved Sugar Barge RV Resort & Marina this year, we will still have the booming-est, macMega, creme-de-la-creme, fly-fishing-centric, raffle-o-rama-rama-ding-dong that we have all come to love. We will just conduct the raffle remotely and mail out the prizes.
A couple of months ago, in July 2021, we began soliciting prize donations from our faithful donors, and even after a year hiatus, the response has been fantastic. Top shelf fly fishing reels, rods, custom flies, guided trips and more have already been committed to the raffle. It’s gonna be gooood!
