Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering free support and educational fly fishing retreats for women with breast cancer is excited to announce its 6th annual Cast One for Hope event to be held September 28-29, 2018 in Hamilton, MT. This year’s event includes a Kick-Off Party, an all-day guided float on the Bitterroot River with awards given, and caps off with a Celebration Dinner showcasing live and silent auctions. Joining us again this year are members of Sisters on the Fly the largest outdoor adventure women’s group in the US supporting women in their journey to get up, get out and become more adventuresome. The Sisters will be on site the entire weekend.
“The Cast One for Hope is a chance for anglers to experience an unforgettable day of guided fly fishing while supporting a great cause. Anglers from across the country are out on the beautiful Bitterroot River in the fall to raise money to offer the CfR experience to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer” says CfR Executive Director, Whitney Milhoan.
Angling Registration is open to the public at $1100 per person which includes the Friday Kick-Off Party, a full-day guided float including lunch, and attendance at the Saturday Celebration Dinner at Flying Horse Montana in Corvallis, MT. Tickets for the Kick-Off Party, $40, and Celebration Dinner, $100, may be purchased separately on the event website.
