Fish for the Fallen
May 29th, 2020
What: Patriots Cove will host their Second Annual Fish for the Fallen Tournament, a fundraiser that brings veterans and first responders back to the water for a fun day of fishing and competition. Sponsors are asked to choose two of their employees to fish Patriot Cove’s trout stream and enjoy the great outdoors- employees should have a military or public service background.
Sponsored teams are comprised of two fishers and paired with a fishing guide. Each angler will fish in honor of a local hero who made the ultimate sacrifice, and are provided a photo and biography to carry throughout the event. Teams are given fishing equipment and meals, as well as access to fish Patriots Cove’s mile-long trout stream.
In addition, all proceeds will be attributed to Patriots Cove’s mission, operations, and events. Last year’s sponsors included three northeastern Pennsylvania companies- Cabot Oil and Gas, Williams Gas Company, and Quality Collision, Inc. Their contributions helped Patriots Cove bring veterans from across the nation to participate in fishing retreats and one day events, empowering injured patriots to get back in the fight.
Where and When: May 29th, 2020 at Patriots Cove in Noxen, PA, from 8:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. Sponsors will be invited to visit Patriots Cove for the Fish for the Fallen Tournament and Memorial Service. The Fish for the Fallen Memorial Service pays tribute to our fallen service members and first responders and is held after the fishing tournament at 4:00 P.M. and is open to the community as well.
Who and Why: Proceeds will be given to Patriots Cove. Patriots Cove is a non-profit organization in northeastern Pennsylvania that was founded by a military veteran and his spouse to empower other veterans, first responders, and their caregivers to heal and adapt to life after service. The Cove hosts events like restorative outdoor activities, environmental service projects, and educational events and retreats for Caregivers on an eighteen-acre refuge.
Interested Sponsors: Patriots Cove’s Second Annual Fish for the Fallen gives companies and organizations the opportunity to make an impact on the men and women who served their country. Sponsors that do not have employees with service-related experience can still get involved. Patriots Cove can select veterans and first responders from the community to participate in teams.
