2013 Hy-Vee Fishing Derby Supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa (Blog)

We need 150 volunteers for the Hy-Vee Fishing Derby! Come to Water Works Park on Saturday, May 18th from 8 am to 1 pm for fishing fun.

The 2013 Hy-Vee Fishing Derby is less than a month away! Come to Water Works Park on Saturday, May 18, from 8 am to 1 pm for fishing fun. Children up to the age of 15 have the opportunity to fish and win prizes.

Funds raised from this event go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa’s mentoring programs. These funds allow us to make more life-changing matches between Bigs and Littles. The lives of children are changed for the better, forever.

With an anticipated visitor attendance of more than 30,000 people, our volunteers are key to the event's success. We need 150 volunteers to help distribute bait, hand out ice cream, help children fish, help keep the park clean, and much more. Interested in volunteering? Sign online at http://hyveederby2013.kintera.org.

What better way to get in the spirit of the Fishing Derby than cool “under the sea” themed crafts?

Hope to see you at the Hy-Vee Fishing Derby!
