Folds of Honor named title sponsor of Bassmaster Elite on Sabine River

Those who protect our freedoms and our families will take center stage when the Bassmaster Elite Series heads to Texas following Memorial Day. The Folds of Honor Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River will be held June 1-4 in Orange, Texas.

Since 2007, Folds of Honor has provided more than 44,000 life-changing scholarships totaling nearly $200 million to the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders. The scholarship recipients are as diverse as the place they call home. Minority recipients represent 41% of all scholarships awarded.

“Folds of Honor takes great pride in partnering with the proud patriots of Bassmaster and the Bassmaster Elite at the Sabine River,” said Diane D. Nemecek, the Folds of Honor senior director of chapter relations. “We have a longstanding relationship with Bassmaster, and the fans have always been a tremendous support of our noble and worthy mission. This Elite Series event takes place just after Memorial Day, and we consider the timing a blessing and a salute to all veterans and service members of the armed forces, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Bassmaster fans have a history and reputation built on patriotism, and anglers witness our country in its rarest form. From sunrise to sunset, outdoorsmen are able to enjoy the tranquil waters thanks to those who preserve and protect the land we hold dear.”

The extraordinary work of Folds of Honor will be highlighted at one of the Elite Series’ best-attended events.

When the Elite Series last visited Orange in 2021, the event generated more than $2.5 million in revenue for local businesses and drew a record-breaking total of 40,107 fans to four days of festivities, including live music at the Orange County River Festival, the popular Bassmaster Outdoors Expo and daily weigh-ins.

Full coverage from all four days of the Folds of Honor Bassmaster Elite at Sabine River will be available on, Tubi and the FOX Sports digital platforms. FS1 will also broadcast live with the tournament leaders on Saturday and Sunday. For more information and a viewing schedule, visit
