Fishing for Families!

September 1-30, 2021

Grab your rod and reel and join us for Ozanam’s first fishing fundraiser! All proceeds will support our family shelter.

Fish for a Great Cause

Fishing for Families is a “catch-photo-release” contest to benefit Ozanam Family Shelter. It’s open to anglers of all ages and fish of all species.

The online contest is September 1-30. And participation is easy! After you register, fish wherever you want, whenever you want during this contest time period. Take a photo of your catches and send those photos to us for a chance to win some great prizes, generously funded by our sponsors.
