Our event was created to help children who are fighting cancer at the nationally recognized American Family Children's Hospital / UW Carbone Cancer Center. Participants in our event share a passion for children, community involvement and fishing. We raise money by asking local fishing guides to take participants out fishing (including National and local celebrities) in a tournament format. In addition, the Casting for Kids event includes a fundraising dinner and both silent and live auctions with net proceeds being donated to the American Family Children's Hospital / UW Carbone Cancer Center.
Save the date! The next Casting For Kids Event will take place on May 21st, 2022!
