Klineline Kids Fishing Program Sponsorship Form
On Friday, April 8th and Saturday, April 9th, 2016 the annual "Klineline Kids Fishing" event will be held at Klineline Pond. Over 2,500 children, ages 5-14, along with their parents, are expected to attend and will have the opportunity to experience and learn about the sport of fishing. Friday will be a "Special Needs Kids Fishing" day.
Presented by the Klineline Kids Fishing Nonprofit, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife and Clark Public Utilities, this program is aimed at getting more kids involved in fishing and building a base for the future stewards of this resource.
Fewer and fewer kids are taking part in the sport of fishing either because of environmental or economic factors. This is a disturbing trend. To create stewards for our future fisheries we need to introduce children to the beneficial aspects of fishing as an individual and family activity and as a way to become more aware of our natural resources.
The “Klineline Kids Fishing” event accomplishes both of these goals. First, it gives the child an opportunity to experience the thrill of catching a fish. Second, educational sessions, offered by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife and local fishing groups will help the child learn more about fishing and the outdoors.
We would like to ask for your support in putting together this worthwhile event at Klineline Pond. We would gladly accept a donation of $250 or more. For this donation we will print your business logo on the back of every child's T-shirt, and provide space to hang your banner at the event and/or put up a tent at the event. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further information. Let's help "Get More Kids, Fishing More Often".
All donations should be made to Klineline Kids Fishing Nonprofit, with an IRS non-profit registration EIN # 45-3764565.
