The 2020 Catch Your Moment Foundation Fundraiser Giveaway took place on Tuesday, June 8, 2020.
Regardless of event and sport show cancelations due to COVID-19 restrictions, the fundraiser had awe-inspiring support and success. The event was put on by NPAA members Gregory Beach (#1268), Timmon Lund (#777), and overwhelming support from Terri Kalan, Jason McCaffrey, Tim Juba, Scott Beck, Dan Rice, Sara Lund, Rebekah Beach, Russ, and Corey Francisco. Marine General, a local Duluth, MN bait and tackle store on the shores of Lake Superior hosted the event.
Winning the boat package was Brian Thorpe. Amazingly Brian is a cancer survivor. Brian saw an episode of Superior Angling with the Catch Your Moment Foundation, attended the 2019 Arrowhead Ice Fishing & Winter Show, and purchased the winning ticket from the exhibit booth. He expressed his excitement to help the Catch Your Moment Foundation by taking other survivors out fishing with his new Ranger boat.
The charitable proceeds will go towards the Foundation’s mission, youth education, and to expand the Foundation’s reach with new chapters in North Dakota run by (Londell Nissen) and Michigan (NPAA member Jake Trombley #490).
