Anglers Taking Terminally Ill Children Fishing – A.T.T.I.C Fishing

This year marked the first annual A.T.T.I.C Fishing event. Wonderland Marine West worked hand in hand with the Make A Wish Foundation to make this a day to remember. A.T.T.I.C. Fishing stands for anglers taking terminally ill children fishing. We feel this is an important event as too many times we tend to get caught up in the competitive nature of this wonderful sport. It is nice to get back to the grass roots and give our time and effort to a truly rewarding experience. The smiles on these children’s faces was the most fulfilling part of the day.

Wonderland Marine West and it’s Pro Staff and friends did a phenomenal job of getting this event kicked off. We worked lots of hours and burned the candle at both ends to make sure the kids got everything they hoped for. We would like to thank the sponsors that made this event the success it was and will continue to be. Home Depot, Brandi Rawks Productions, ButterKrust Bakery, Kroger, Frito Lays, Bass Pro Shops, and Inflatable Planets – THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!!! Also, for all of the anglers that showed up – WE THANK YOU!

For 2010 we plan to make this event bigger and better. This year provided a day of fishing, workshops from Home Depot, FREE FOOD, and bouncy toys for the kids. Next year we plan to offer more for the families thru increased sponsor participation. This means taking more children fishing and providing more entertainment off the water.
