CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A big time fishing tournament that is happening later in July has already generated a lot of money to help some needy kids get ready for a brand new school year.

On Thursday, Valero Refinery donated a $55,000 check to the Lead First Foundation's "Clothe a Kid" Program, which will help buy new shoes and uniforms for at least 1,000 kids.

The money was raised as part of Valero's "Reel it in for Kids" Fishing Tournament, which takes place July 22.
