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.
