    Dalbey hosts food drive at FWC

    Rich Dalbey is "hooked on helping" with his food drives to support local Food Banks.

    Rich Dalbey, FLW professional angler, will host a food drive for the Harvest Hope Food Bank. Rich Dalbey, who has won over $140,000.00 in FLW sponsored fishing events, has qualified for the Forrest L. Wood Cup Championship Tournament three times, finishing third in 2012, as a co-angler. This year Rich Dalbey finished 41 in the standings for Angler of the Year. Additionally, Dalbey has 1 win and 13 top 10 finishes to his credit in FLW sponsored tournaments around the United States. Rich and his wife, Frances, reside in Greenville, Texas. When he is not on the road, Rich enjoys volunteering at his local food bank. Seeking to bring an awareness of the need in some of the communities where the FLW tournaments are held, Rich invites people to bring cans of food to the FLW Expo.

    The FLW Expo will be Saturday and Sunday, August 16-17 from 10AM – 4PM at the Colonial Life Arena, 801 Lincoln Street , Columbia SC 29208.

    Everyone who brings 5 cans of food will be entered to win a $100 Walmart gift card.
