Wish-a-Fish Foundation 

Each year, the Wish-A-Fish foundation takes more than 100 families with disabled, sick or special-needs children out on the water for a day of fun and fishing. Some of these families rarely experience a traditional vacation, so the outing is a welcome day of relaxation and respite. The joy on a child’s face when he or she catches that first fish is nothing short of miraculous.
