"The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation hosts events nationally to provide exposure to children, who may not otherwise get the opportunity, to the sport of fishing and the great outdoors. Lew’s Fishing Tackle is proud to be a sponsor and a small part of what the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation stands for and accomplishes. The smiles on the kids faces say enough for us and we know they are receiving a gift that can last a lifetime."
"Established in 1947, Flambeau Outdoors has stood on a legacy of providing anglers with tackle organization solutions that make a day on the water ready for success. From innovative technologies for advanced anglers to a kid’s first tackle box, we are proud to support future generations of memories made in the great outdoors through C.A.S.T. for Kids. Molded American passion, Flambeau Outdoors believes the core of the fishing passion starts with the glint in a kid’s eye when that first fish bites."
"The Bureau of Reclamation sponsored the first C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation Fishing Event in 1992. Reclamation has continued to work with C.A.S.T. for Kids to create outdoor recreation opportunities on our beautiful Reservoirs accessible to all citizens, especially those who are most often unable to participate in fishing and boating activities. It's a carefree day that's just for the children and their families. When you see an empty wheelchair on the shore, you know that something special is happening for that child and their families."
