After much consideration and prayer, it is in our best interest to cancel Castin' N Catchin' for this year. Schedule conflicts, CDC guidelines, people nervous about groups and getting your thoughts only justify that we cancel and focus on our efforts for Spring of 2021! Also, not being able to have the dinner, lack of sponsor exposure, Expo, kids fishing clinic and full experience of the tournament were factors that were also considered.
Thank you for your contribution to Castin’ ‘n Catchin’ 2020 in support of the Pediatric & Congenital Heart Center at Children’s of Alabama. In the five years of Castin’ ‘n Catchin’, we have raised over $500,000 to improve the lives of pediatric heart patients in Alabama and throughout the country. Money raised from the event has funded: a full time research assistance, research on renal care for cardiac patients and a camp to teach patients with cardiac issues about caring for their condition. We were able to accomplish this because of your support!
We wanted to give everyone who has already made a contribution the option to apply the gift as a 2020 donation to the Pediatric & Congenital Heart Center at Children’s of Alabama or apply it to the rescheduled event happening in 2021. We are also happy to give a refund if you would like. To receive a refund you will need to fill out a W9 and return the filled out form to me. Forms can be found at this site: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf
We are happy to announce that we do have a date secured for 2021! Castin’ ‘n Catchin’ will take place on April 17, 2021.
Thank you for your support and please let us know if you have any questions!
