2017 Event Recap

A beautiful sunrise began our 2017 Bethel Island event and after the boat captains meeting, everyone was eager to get out on the water. Each child was paired with a boat captain, had their photo taken and set out for a perfect day on the water. After a few hours of fishing, boats began to return to the marina where they were greeted by a cheering crowd eager to see all the fish that were caught. Once everyone was back, a delicious pulled pork lunch was served with custom-made fish-themed cookies for dessert. Families and volunteers enjoyed the D.J. and photo booth courtesy of Tailspin Party Productions where participants could dress up and take photos home with them as a souvenir of their fun day! Every participant received a photo plaque to commemorate the day and we are already looking forward to Bethel Island 2018 next year!

2016 Event Recap

Sugar Barge Resort hosted the first ever C.A.S.T. event at this location. The Bethel Island C.A.S.T. event was the brainchild of Renza Badilla.  Lots of Boaters and kids showed up. Most of the shore volunteers were from a local high school fishing club. Lots of fish were caught and the weather was beautiful, it all came together for a good time for the kids. Overall, a fine new event!
