Fishing for Kids sets its sights on 2 Million!

Event Date: Saturday, August 28, 2010

The 5th Annual Fishing for Kids Tournament at the West Coast Fishing Club is being held August 28th – September 1, 2010. This unique, fundraising adventure has raised more than $1.8 million for BC’s special kids and organizers are confident that the $2 million dollar mark will be surpassed this year. Funds are distributed to two great BC charities, The Children’s Hospital and the Canucks Autism Network.

On August 28th, forty-two anglers head to one of West Coast Fishing Club’s premier fishing destinations. It is here among the breathtaking beauty of Haida Gwaii that fishermen drop their lines and compete for over $150,000 in prizes. In the true spirit of the Tournament, 100% of this purse is donated back into the fundraising
pool. Among the guests are Vancouver Canucks owner Paolo Aquilini, GM Mike Gillis, and returning participants NHL defenseman Willie Mitchell and culinary superstar David Hawksworth. Go fishermen and fisherwomen!
