(C.A.S.T. FOR KIDS FOUNDATION PRESS RELEASE)

The 4th Annual Seahawks Fish & Feast Charity Fundraiser for the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation will be hosting over 20 special needs children and their families for a morning of fishing with players, coaches, and sponsors, and an afternoon of festivities Sunday, May 16th starting at 7:30am off the docks of the VMAC Training Facility.

Players and coaches scheduled to participate this year include Deion Branch, John Carlson, Josh Wilson, Nick Reed, Mike Teel, Mike Reilly, Mitch Erickson, Ricky Foley, Coach Pat McPherson, and Coach Dan Butkus.

Twenty families have been invited through the local school district and various children’s agencies. Early Sunday morning will kick-off with a boater’s meeting, followed by 3 hours of guided fishing on Lake Washington. The boats will return for lunch provided by Famous Dave’s and festivities such as competing against player combine scores and an on-shore kids fishing tank. A vast silent auction will also offer several items from local businesses and the Seattle Seahawks.

“We are very excited for this year’s event!” says Andrea Estes, Development Consultant with C.A.S.T., “The Seahawks and our organization have worked hard to make this year’s event the best yet and will look forward to its outcome. The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation truly values the support of our community and the unique opportunity for the kids that this fundraiser offers.”

The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation, established in 1991, provides disabled and disadvantaged children an opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.  The foundation, based in Renton, takes thousands of children fishing each year.  Each participating family receives fishing equipment to keep and learns all angling techniques enabling the continuation of outdoor recreation.
