This has been a special year for the Howell family with the Bassmaster Classic win and all the great opportunities it’s provided. It has really given us a greater platform to tell others about Kings Home and all of the teenagers, kids and women with children that they serve.

As you know, we have been blessed to represent them and help them raise funds by giving away my Triton/Mercury package 3 years in a row now!
