FISH THE CHICK Annual Family Community Event

Fish the Chick Logo


History:
 Through the 2012 County Assessment members of the Rhea community expressed a 
need for additional programs that were designed to assist women and mothers with children. The United Way Board of Directors created a special GRANT designated to meet those needs.

Concurrently, a handful of women leaders came up with the idea to host a bass tournament calling it Fish the Chick and needed a partner to help get it off the ground.  Jenny Nevans, a BASS sponsored lady bass angler and Christine Ralph Executive Director of UW talked and a partnership was formed with proceeds going to support the GRANT with additional funds.  The first committee included Jenny Brooks Nevans, Dr. Lori Reid, Stacey Swafford, Stacey Gates, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Jane Locke and Kim Cranfield.

For consecutive years since it's inception the event has grown each year.  The bottom line, more women and especially our children have received services that better their everyday life.  All money stays in our community doing the work it's citizens said we needed.
