Our 2020 Event Will Be In Memory of Dave Kerr, A Longtime Volunteer of C.A.S.T.

“Incredibly passionate volunteers and the amazing staff made for a memorable day. All you saw was HUGE smiles all day from all the kids.” – Parent, Lake Berryessa, CA

This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities, ages 5 – 17, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Take to the water with C.A.S.T. for an unforgettable morning of fishing and boating!

CAST Covid-19 Event Policy and Procedures

The CAST for Kids Foundation will be holding all 2020 events in compliance with CDC, National, State and local guidelines for Covid-19.  We will be following these guidelines for the safety, health and well-being of our participants, families, volunteers and staff.  If we can hold an event according to state guidelines, as states phase in their re-opening, we will. However, our events may look different than they have in the past. Lunch and awards may be broken into separate groups to enhance social distancing. At a minimum, we will be implementing 6’ social distancing guidelines and the use of protective measures like masks and hand sanitizers.  We are confident we have figured out how to provide a safe, relaxing, fun environment for everyone to enjoy at CAST for Kids events in 2020! However, it will be impossible to guarantee the safety of all CAST participants and volunteers. Please consider each of your individual risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic when making your decision to attend any CAST event.

2018 Event Recap:

The day was very hot. The National Weather Service had issued a heat advisory to begin at 11 am.

In spite of the heat, we are hearing that many families and kids had a good time and are looking forward to next year’s event.  The winning combination of spending time outdoors in the park, on the boat, and catching fish is a powerful incentive. We walked one participant through placing his first live worm on a fish-hook, to his delight.

We are very appreciative of the support of Fairfield-Suisun Bass Reapers, Best Bass Tournaments, and Monticello Ski Club during this event. Without their continued support, these events would not be possible. We are also grateful for the teams from California Fish and Wildlife and CalFire who not only participated in the event, but stepped in to provide immediate medical care for one of our participants.
