MISSION STATEMENT

The Gordon “Bubba” Dove, Jr. Foundation is a non-profit organization created in memory of Gordon “Bubba” Dove, Jr. by his friends and family.   Through fundraising events, the foundation hopes to further causes which Bubba held with great importance, including the restoration of the Gulf Coast and the promotion of education to those less fortunate. The foundation sponsors an annual rodeo in hopes to preserve our fondest memories of Bubba, an avid fisherman, while working toward raising money to make charitable donations to organizations and students in furtherance of those causes.
