It’s the best day of the year!
Our annual Fishin’ Galore event is held in May at the 3 Bar E Ranch in Clinton, LA. Every year over one hundred St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patients and their families enjoy a fun filled day of fishing, food and friendship. Participants arrive as early to pick up crickets and fishing gear provided by generous sponsors. With the help of our many volunteers, patients and family members enjoy fishing, arts and crafts, petting zoo fun, and face painting.
Local law enforcement escort buses of eager patients and family members from their hotel to the ranch where they are greeted by hundreds of excited volunteers and guests. After a grand entrance, the celebration of life and support lasts throughout the day. Activities include pond fishing, skeet shooting, an archery booth, photobooth, batting cages and lots of children’s games and activities! Delicious meals and snacks are served all day.
A closing ceremony wraps up the event with a huge balloon release and tossing Mardi Gras beads to celebrate the memory of patients and volunteers that have passed. The event makes such an impact that many patients return year after year! The smiles, togetherness and laughter make Fishin’ Galore an event that stays in the hearts of the St. Jude families who attend.
Dream Day Foundation would like to thank the volunteers, sponsors, vendors, law enforcement groups, local organizations and many more for their help and support in making this a memorable day for the St. Jude families!! New patients are encouraged to attend next year’s event.
