Our second spring fundraiser is “Caught Doing Good for Kids 2023”. It will be held on Friday, April 21, 2023, in the CASA Conference Center. It is a virtual fishing tournament in which we challenge community groups and businesses to “fish” for donations for our program. We have been doing this event for over eight years, and it has become one of our favorite events. It gets easier and more fun every year that we do it. We hope we can “reel in” quite a few groups and businesses this year.
It is simple. We will snag a team of co-workers, friends, business groups, etc. (3-5 people). The team will meet on that Friday to fish for donations among their network of contacts, which will help get them off the hook with a simple tax-deductible donation to CASA made via phone, on-line donations, text, email, and social media. All donations will further our mission to help abused and neglected children.
We will provide tips on what the team members will say and give them all the information they need to make phone calls, send emails and texts, or post their requests on social media.
It isn’t hard, but it is certainly an adventure! The teams will have fun, talk a little smack, eat great food, and fish for prizes. Each team can choose a two-hour fishing spot that will conveniently fit their schedule, or they can even fish from their own “pond” if it is more convenient.
