A huge thank you to
all the sponsors and donors who make
this event possible year after year.
Without the very generous support of our
sponsors it would not be possible for us
to send EVERY child home with a goody
bag, T-Shirt, full belly and a prize of
their choice. Not to mention gift cards
for parents and a rod/reel combo &
trophy for each winner.
