Exelon's Fishing for a Cure
June 3, 2017
Celebrating 16 Years of Fishing and Funding Local
Not-for-Profits
Safety ​​​​​​​

Grab a pole and push out from shore for Exelon’s 16th annual Fishing for a Cure fundraiser, from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Braidwood Generating Station’s cooling lake in Braceville, IL. Teams (two anglers per team) will compete for some impressive cash prizes totaling $10,000. First place will reel in $4,000, and second and third place win $2,500 and $1,000, respectively. Those who finish in the top 10 also win cash. For the list of rules, please see the form below. 

The entirety of the proceeds from the $150-per-boat entry fee (see entry form below), raffles and silent auctions will benefit the Braidwood Area Healthy Community Coalition​, ​a local not-for-profit that, among other things, is battling the heroin epidemic in the area. In its 15 previous years, the Fishing for a Cure event has raised more than $455,000 for many charities and nonprofits, most recently in 2016, when the fundraiser netted $44,000 for the Easter Seals Joliet Region.

For those young anglers, ages 12 and under, a Kid’s Derby will be held that same day, Saturday, June 3, at Godley Park District’s pond. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the competition will be held from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Registration is $5. See the Kid’s Derby flyer for more details.
