The C.A.S.T. Foundation is so excited to have Texas Farm Bureau Insurance as not only the title sponsor for our June 2022 Waco Texas Gala/ Fundraiser, but also as a presenting sponsor of every single C.A.S.T. for Kids event in the State of Texas for 2022. This is their fourth year to sponsor our Waco Texas Gala/Fundraiser and all C.A.S.T. for Kids events in Texas. This assists our incredible network of volunteer coordinators in providing the best possible experience for every child that attends our events.


In 2020, the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation welcomed The Sportsmen’s Club of Fort Worth as a title sponsor for our first annual Fort Worth Gala/Fundraiser as well as a presenting sponsor to six C.A.S.T. for Kids events in the state of Texas.  The SCFW has continued their support of our Fort Worth Gala/Fundraiser and six events in the state of Texas.  Their support has allowed more children with special needs in Texas to have the opportunity to go fishing and to be celebrated by their community.

Growing up with a disabled brother, we witnessed first-hand all of the outdoor activities that disabled children miss out on. On the flip side, we also were very fortunate enough to witness the never-ending smiles that resulted pretty much every time our brother Daniel went out on the boat or fished with us on the shore or pier. It was those little trips we took for granted that Daniel always kept talking about. Those were his favorite memories. So we wanted to give those same kinds of unforgettable experiences to as many disabled kids as possible. Thanks C.A.S.T.!

MarineMat is proud to be an Associate Partner of C.A.S.T. for Kids. We love being able to donate to organizations that encourage families to get out on the water and go boating. Every child deserves the opportunity to go fishing, and we are happy to be a part of making that activity accessible and fun for everyone.



Our events happen because of generous sponsors like you!  Working together, we can touch the lives of more kids and families through the sport of fishing.  For more information on a Partnership with the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation, please contact Jay Yelas, Executive Director, at 541-602-9823 or by email.
