Caddis for Kids 'Tie-a-Thon' Press Release

Just wanted to post this. A VERY good cause and well worth supporting if you can. As a child I spent a lot of time at Childrens with a life threatening illness and any support they can get is going to a good place. I know I will be there to show my support!

Caddis For Kids to Benefit Children's Hospital

Seattle, WA

Don Johnson's Third Annual "Caddis for Kids" Charity Tie-a-Thon will be held Friday and Saturday, November 21st and 22nd at the Avid Angler Fly Fishing Outfitters (17171 Bothell Way NE, A130, Lake Forest Park, Washington, 206-362-4030). Don, a noted angling writer and professional fly-tier, will attempt to dress over 500 Miracle Caddis flies in just 24 hours. Net proceeds will benefit the uncompensated care program at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center.

The 'tie-a-thon', which begins at Noon the 21st, will be followed by a fly-tying demonstration conducted by a panel of some of the finest fly-tying artists ever assembled including Alec Jackson, Norm Norlander, Mike Croft, the Avid Angler's own Nathan Keen, Stu Farnham, Ms. Pat Bolton, and Scotty Howell. The presentation-grade flies dressed by the panelists will be auctioned at a later date with the proceeds benefiting Children's Hospital.

For pledges, donations and/or corporate sponsorship information contact Kira Haller of Children's Hospital Foundation at 206-987-4987 or Don Johnson at 360-432-0402.
