    Sponsor Packet

  • The mission of the Oregon Tuna Classic is twofold where it manages and promotes a series of offshore fishing tournaments allowing sport fishermen to come together and donate their time as well as their catch to the hungry people of Oregon and Washington. The Oregon Tuna Classic is also a Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, Inc. and therefore also recognizes the need for conservation and management of wetlands and associated habitats for waterfowl through its fund raising programs. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.

    Mission Statement

  • Oregon Tuna Classic Sees Growth The Oregon Tuna Classic has seen significant growth each year and in

    2010 was recognized by ESPN as the largest charity fishing tournament

    series on the West Coast. Also in 2010, the International Game Fishing

    Association (IGFA) chose to designate the tournaments as qualifying

    events for the Offshore World Championships. You only have to sit in

    the tent during the awards dinner and witness the contagious energy to

    understand why the events continue to have significant annual growth.

    The events are filmed by numerous fishing shows each year and in 2008 & 2010 Tred Barta filmed

    an episode for his award winning show “The Best and Worst of Tred Barta” which airs on the NBC

    Sports network each week. It has also been filmed for two seasons by the Emmy award winning

    show “The Joy of Fishing” which airs on multiple networks every week. The events are covered by

    multiple local radio shows as well as two national outdoor sports radio programs. Numerous local

    and national magazines cover the events including Northwest Sportsman Magazine, Sport Fishing

    Magazine and Saltwater Sportsmans Magazine.

    The Oregon Tuna Classic was the 2010 Recipient of the Outstanding Oregon

    Tourism Volunteer Award from the Governor’s Conference on Tourism.

    Celebrating those who are making a positive difference in their communities

    and beyond.

    Oregon Food Bank selected the

    Oregon Tuna Classic to receive the 2008 Stone Soup Award for outstanding

    leadership and support of the issues affecting low income people.

  • Oregon Tuna Classic Making A Difference The Oregon Tuna Classic uses sponsor money to cash flow the organization through the first six

    months of the year while they get things in place for the new season. The Oregon Tuna Classic is

    unique in that almost 100% of all sponsor cash donated is forwarded to their charities at the end of

    the season. In fact, there has been only one year (2011 season) which was under 90%, most years they

    have donated between 105%-140% of the funds received from the sponsors. Team registrations and

    the funds generated from the season finale auction have exceeded the costs to put on these events and

    therefore have enabled the organization to forward those additional raised funds. Each of the two

    events will bring 400-650 people consisting of 60-80 teams of fishermen, support staff, volunteers

    and spectators to the coastal communities hosting the events. The reported positive economic impact

    from those communities is $250,000 to $300,000 per event and with two events, that’s an economic

    impact well in excess of $500,000 that gets pumped into those coastal communities.

    Depending on fishing conditions a port community also receives 3,500-10,000 pounds of albacore

    tuna. Some ports have volunteer filet teams and deliver it fresh while the Oregon Tuna Classic

    paid almost $20,000 to have it canned before distribution in the other ports. In 2010 the teams of

    fishermen caught and donated 20,400 pounds of tuna to the hungry in these coastal communities.

    In 2012 the two events (Ilwaco and Garibaldi) donated 16,955 pounds of tuna to the Oregon Food

    Bank and local food banks of Pacific County. The organization continues to look for ways to cut cost

    through donated goods and services as well as just fine tuning procedures. What other charity can

    you write a check to and get this much bang for your buck.

    Your opportunity to make a difference in the Oregon Tuna Classic starts right here.

  • History of the Oregon Tuna Classic The Oregon Tuna Classic is the result of a few compassionate fishermen and one great idea. Bud

    Hosner, commercial realtor and avid fisherman, thought of a creative and new way to help fight

    hunger in Oregon. Hosner found himself giving ample fish to friends and started wondering why

    he was giving so much food to those who have more than enough when the hungry people of

    Oregon could benefit from his catch. In 2005 a small group of fisherman joined with Hosner to

    organize the I Fish for Food Tuna Tournament so anglers could spend the day doing what they

    love while helping to feed hungry people.

    Twenty teams competed to catch as much fish as they could in one day, with the objective of g

    iving to those in need. By the end of the day, over 100 tuna totaling more than 2100 pounds were

    ready to be canned for donation to the Oregon Food Bank Network.

    In an effort to continue such a great tradition, in 2006 The Oregon Tuna Classic was registered with

    the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a committee was formed to secure sponsorships

    and to effectively manage future events.

    Today, The Oregon Tuna Classic is the fastest growing charitable tournament on the West Coast.

    In 2008, more than 250 team entries proudly donated $46,000 in cash and 13,200 pounds of fish

    to the Oregon Food Bank. Essential to the event’s success were the 78 local, regional and national

    companies that participated as sponsors. “Our motivation for sponsoring the OTC goes far beyond

    marketing,” said Chris Hess Marketing Manager for G.Loomis “This is an opportunity for our

    company and our employees to give back to our community through an activity we love and

    enjoy.”

    Estimated size of 2016 tournaments: Two 1 day events (2 days fishing with a Saturday night dinner, awards, merchandise giveaway, auction) expecting a total of 80 teams and 600-750 participants for each event.

    Tournament dates and locations: Deep Canyon Challenge – Ilwaco, WA July 29th & 30th Oregon Tuna Classic - Garibaldi August 26th & 27th
