2016 Event Recap:

This was a first year event coordinated by Tiffany Risch on the James River.  There was a very good turnout for a first year event and 31 children attended and were treated to some boating and fishing.  Children that did not want to go on a boat were able to fish off a pier with fishing volunteers and all the children that wanted to go out in a boat were able to.  There were plenty of volunteers for the event, Tiffany and her event sponsors had all of the children’s tackle boxes filled with fishing goodies as well as having pinata’s for the children to bust open after the awards.  Coca Cola provided the events drinks as well as several volunteers and the community support was great. The event was promoted on radio by Fishing Tidewater Radio and WKDW Radio.
