“If you knew me personally, you’d know how great this event was for me to be a part of. I had the opportunity to take two boys, who happen to be autistic and they were so amazing. The passion flows from the kids when they have their heart into it. Those two boys were all about the fishing. I wish the world would make your event a headliner, daily! Thanks for all you do.” – Volunteer Boater, Eastern Shore

“Very satisfied with this experience. I truly loved the award for my child.” – Parent of Participant, Eastern Shore
