CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The 10th annual Forgotten Child Crappie Tournament was held at Chester Frost Park Sunday, October 12, 2014. The event was hosted by the Chattanooga Crappie Club to help the Forgotten Child Fund collect toys for families who need a little help providing Christmas to their children.

Over 30 teams came out to participate in this year's annual event.

Forgotten Child Fund is an annual project of the Chattanooga Police Dept., and later the Chattanooga Fire Dept became enthusiastic participants which now provide Christmas gifts for over 7,000 area children.

Tournament directors Dave Ohms and Jim Edmister said, "We would like to thank everyone who supported this cause, and we are sure this will give some child a very nice Christmas." This is the main reason we have tournaments like this"

The team of Brian Howard and Dave East took first place with a total weight of 6 lbs 15 ozs.. They received  $400 and TowBoat US. Memberships for the win. Brian and Dave both donated their winnings back to the Forgotten Child Fund.

Dave said, “This tournament is all about the kids.”
