Two Fundraisers Benefit Catch the Wave
Two May Fundraisers Benefit CWH
By Jackie Holfelder
Catch the Wave of Hope (CWH) benefitted from two active and outdoor fundraisers during the month of May, raising not only much-needed funds for its mission to prevent the sex trafficking of children through awareness, education, restoration, and legislation, but adding to the number of people who support the non-profit.
On May 1, National Honor Society students from Clark Advanced Learning Center in Stuart assisted members of CWH in organizing and volunteering at Race the Wave of Hope on the IRSC Salerno Road Campus.
Participants of all ages took part in the one-mile run/walk.
Then, from May 1-8, a statewide fishing tournament called FISH4HOPE:HOPE4FISH drew scores of fishing enthusiasts of all ages.
Prizes for Anglers who caught the Longest Fish and the Angler who had a Grand Slam (Total Longest Combined-Snook, Redfish, and Trout), as well as Lucky Angler of the Day and Lucky Kid Fish of the Day prize drawings added to the fun.
Over the course of the eight-day tournament, more than $50,000 was raised from sponsorships and participants
Both events are being planned for 2022, with the possibility that the fishing tournament be a month-long event.
Catch the Wave of Hope was founded in 2016. To find out more about the 501(c)(3) or to learn how you can help, visit www.catchthewaveofhope.org.
