Thank you for your interest in our CHELCO Charity Bass Tournament. We will update this page with information as it becomes available.
What is the purpose of the Bass Tournament
Florida electric cooperatives are teaming up to bring electricity to a remote village in Guatemala with support from the NRECA international program. To be part of the initiative, we need to raise money to send two linemen to be part of the crew in Guatemala, which will take place sometime in late 2020.
About NRECA International in Guatemala
NRECA International has been working in Guatemala for more than 27 years providing ongoing support to develop a sustainable, reliable and affordable supply of electricity to many rural communities. NRECA International facilitates and manages active volunteer participation from various U.S. electric co-ops, where volunteers are integrated into the NRECA International team when they travel to remote parts of the country. In addition to playing an integral role to help build, upgrade and extend power lines, these electric co-ops have invested more than $1 million of funds for electrification projects in recent years to provide assistance to remote community energy systems.
