Thousands of children in our community end up in foster homes through no fault of their own. They've lost their parents to death or abandonment, but their needs continue.

That's where the "Pick It Forward for Orphans" organization jumps in to help out. Pick It Forward for Orphans is a 501c3 dedicated to helping foster children in our community.

Some of those needs have financial implications and by taking part and fishing in this event, each competing angler will provide some much needed financial assistance.
