2018 F.I.S.H. Fest!

The F.I.S.H. Fest is here, and it's not just about fishing this year!

F.I.S.H. (Friends In Support of Hope) Fest is a year long set of events we're launching to help support the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters! In 2017, we raised approximately $90,000 for CHKD through our Fishing Fest! Our festivities will be bigger and better than ever, with even MORE events to look forward to throughout the year!

Check out the Scheduled Events drop down below to mark your calendars for this year's line-up of great activities! You can also check out pictures from this year's Fishing Fest event, and make your own contribution to the CHKD below!
