Hank Cherry Teams Up With Hobie® Eyewear For Warrior’s Journey Tournament On Lake Norman, NC

Oceanside, CA – Two-time Bassmaster Classic champion Hank Cherry, renowned for his precision and demanding attention to detail in fishing, proudly announces his collaboration with Hobie® Eyewear for the upcoming Warrior’s Journey Tournament on January 6th, 2024. The tournament will take place on Lake Norman, NC from 8am-4pm, and launch from Beatty’s Ford Landing.

Participants eager to join the tournament can sign up on-site at the ramp on the day of the event. The $100 entry fee will serve as a direct donation to the Warrior’s Journey. Rules and guidelines will be announced on-site, ensuring a fair and exciting competition for all anglers.

Reflecting on the event’s significance, Hank Cherry shared, “Having this event every year is a good reminder to everyone that our protectors aren’t always protected after they serve. Raising awareness and funds for the Warrior’s Journey has been an honor. They are a top-notch organization that really believes in helping our Veterans.”

In addition to the tournament, Hobie® Eyewear will contribute to the excitement by giving away several pairs of Hank Cherry’s Champion’s Collection sunglasses as prizes. The sunglasses, known for meeting Cherry’s demanding standards for comfort, style, protection, and clarity beneath the water’s surface, will be awarded to deserving participants at the event.


The Champion’s Collection revealed at the 2022 Bassmaster Classic and expanded at last year’s world championship event, includes two distinctive styles – the Hank Cherry Bluefin Float and Hank Cherry Mojo Float. Each is available in three lens colors that were selected by the champ. Copper with Sea Green Mirror, Sightmaster™ Plus, and Grey with Cobalt Blue Mirror maximize opportunities to see clearly beneath the surface in different light conditions.

Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection sunglasses provide exceptional value with premium features and prices starting at $109.99. Hobie® Eyewear dual-coated lenses repel water and oil while performance polarized lens technology reduces visual distractions to keep sightlines crystal clear.

Hank Cherry Champion’s Collection sunglasses incorporate Cherry’s branding colors, with black fading to red, and feature his signature and logo.

Hobie® Eyewear is thrilled to support the Warrior’s Journey Tournament and Hank Cherry’s commitment to raising awareness and funds for veterans.
