For one Smashville celebrity, it's not always about throwing catfish.

Jake Waddell, also known as "Catfish Jake,” threw a big fundraiser to support families of children with congenital heart defects.

Waddell is known for being cited by police for throwing a catfish on the ice in 2017 in Pittsburgh.

Besides the party, there was a silent auction featuring sports and music memorabilia filled with signatures. Waddell said it's important to help causes you're passionate about.

The event was held to promote his charity golf tournament -- the first-ever Instrument of Crime Cup.

Also in attendance was our very own Lelan Statom and his lovely wife, Yolanda.
