Delaware Ready to Go Fish! for Autism Delaware
NEWARK, DEL., August 13, 2010 - Teams at eight local ponds in Kent and Sussex counties will use their angling skills to compete for prizes at the Second Annual Go Fish! for Autism Delaware on September 19, 2010. The catch-and-release bass fishing tournament begins at 7:00 am with fish weigh-in at 1:00 pm. Then the party begins with a community-wide Celebration at Bicentennial Park in downtown Milford at 1:30 p.m.
Space is filling up quickly for this truly unique event that raises funds for the downstate operations of Autism Delaware. Registration for anglers is available online at www.delautism.org or via phone at 302-422-2255. Fishing teams work together to fundraise on behalf of the organization.
Pro Bass Fisherman Mike Delvisco will participate again this year – fishing in the tournament and attending the post-fishing Celebration. The entire community, participants, and families will also join in at Bicentennial Park at 1:30 pm. The Celebration features music by Code Blue and food from Go Fish Fish & Chips of Rehoboth. Children will enjoy games, a moon bounce, face painting, lawn mower train rides and Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Energy Conservation will teach children casting.
“We’ve been extremely fortunate in the level of community support for Go Fish,” said Dafne Carnright, Downstate Services Coordinator for Autism Delaware and chairperson for Go Fish. “Anglers from all over the state will participate in the tournament and companies around Delaware have come out to sponsor as well.”
Go Fish for Autism Delaware is sponsored by Texas Roadhouse, Atlantic Concrete Co., Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, Parkview RV Center, and Wilmington Trust. Additional support is provided by Cabela’s, Code Blue, Eagle Claw, Kemp’s Ice Cream, Go Fish Restaurant of Rehoboth, IG Burton, Pepsi, State Farm Mark Schanne, Royal Farms, and Triton.
