1st Annual Fishing Derby.png

Earl O'Brien spent his life creating opportunities for kids to enjoy sports and life, even if disadvantaged, disabled, or suffering from catastrophic disease. In 2005, Earl launched an offshore fishing tournament benefiting pediatric patients, and twenty years later the Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation is still fishing for kids. All proceeds benefit Child Life programs in four Michigan children's hospitals. As a means to support and raise awareness of Humanity for Prisoners, an HFP supporter generously donated two vessels to HFP!

With no further ado, Humanity for Prisoners is thrilled to announce our 1st Annual Fishing Derby - a unique fundraiser that promises a day of fun and excitement for two great causes! Set sail from Chinook Pier in Grand Haven on Thursday MAy 23, 2024, at 6:00 a.m. for a morning full of fishing and fun. Afterwards, join us at the dock for fish weigh-in, lunch, program, and prizes!

This fundraiser features a silent auction for just ten exclusive spots - don't miss your chance to participate in this memorable event, all while enjoying a day on the water and supporting two great causes!
