When 175 People Donate $$$..

You get a hell of a lot of money.  $2,000...Das a lot of money

The Spokane premier of Connect was a tremendous success.  A gigantic thank you to everyone who helped, worked and donated at last night's event to benefit the Wild Steelhead Coalition.

A lot of planning went into this event.  We took the idea originally from Dave and his crew at Emerald Water Anglers in Seattle and brought the concept to the east side of the state.

We teamed up with The Silver Bow Fly Shop as our promotion partner and with a two month push, people showed up in droves.

Almost all the raffle tickets were sold.  The over 50 raffle items from the 30+ donating businesses went to very excited winning fishermen, women and children.

And let's be honest, Connect as a film is bloody amazing.  I mean, Tigerfish...really.   I can pretty much assume that I will never get a chance to fish in Tanzania.  I had more comments from the crowd that it was the best fishing film they've ever seen.

So from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone who made this possible.    We couldnt have done it with you.

And the $2,000 check to the Wild Steelhead Coalition is proof positive that even in a down economy, people are willing to come together for a great cause.


  1. That's awesome, congratulations to everybone who worked and attended and donated. I really wanted to make it over for this but it just didn't come together. Next time!
