FedNor is offering a helping hand to one of the major attractions in the region.

The Fort Frances Bass Championships has been promised $16,728.

The money will be used to purchase a stage for the event, not only for weigh-ins, and prize ceremonies but also for the evening entertainment.

The stage will include two sets of stairs, as well as skirting and safety rails.

Not-for-profit organizations within the community will also be able to use the stage.
