The annual Swollfest Fishing Rodeo captures the heart and soul of South Louisiana, combining love of the outdoors, Gulf Coast fishing, compassion for those in need, and laissez les bons temps rouler, all for the sake of charity. Since 1997, this nonprofit organization holds its annual fishing tournament in Grand Isle, Louisiana, and raises funds to benefit charities serving children and veterans. Swollfest is a 100% volunteer-run event, with 100% of proceeds donated to various charities and scholarships. Founded and run by Baton Rouge dentist Nick Rauber, the event relies on student volunteers, volunteer board members, and approximately 100 sponsors with room for more. Visit for more information.

We had a wonderful weekend of great weather, big fish, big prizes, good times, good people and AMAZING philanthropy. We were able to donate $250,000 to Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge, with a total pledge of $500,000!!!! We could not have done it without our amazing volunteers, sponsors and participants.

Our Inspiration Award Winner, George Wood, is an exceptional young man and is truly an inspiration to our entire organization and our surrounding community.

In addition, we also made donations to several other organizations, including a fleet of kayaks to Heroes on the Water!

And, of course we had a few surprises for our founder and CEO, Nick Rauber.

Our 20th Anniversary was outstanding and we're looking forward to many more to come!

Save the Date - June 6-9, 2018 and we hope to see you all there!
