ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

For the 40th year in a row, the Albany Bass Club donated the money raised by their annual Team Bass Tournament to the Easter Seals of Southern Georgia.

The Bass Club officials presented a check for more than $8,700 to Easter Seals officials on Thursday.  

The money will benefit Megan's House, a respite home for children with development disabilities like autism.  

Easter Seals officials estimate that in the 40 years the Albany Bass Club has donated more than $300,000 to their center to help the disabled.

"When we started looking around for an organization that could benefit from it, we selected Easter Seals," said Albany Bass Club Co-Chairman Terry Bundies. "And we've been with them ever since." 

State Senators Freddie Powell Sims and Greg Kirk read a proclamation at the event, honoring the Albany Bass Club for their long standing effort to help the disabled.
