Braidwood Seeking Charity For Employee Giving Campaign & 2019 Fishing For A Cure


What charity do you think Braidwood Station should support for this fall's Employee Giving Campaign and next year's Fishing for a Cure event? 

For the first time, Braidwood's Station's Employee Giving Campaign and Fishing for a Cure committees will join forces to raise money for one non-profit organization. The fundraising will begin at the Employee Giving Campaign kickoff event Aug. 9 and conclude at next year's 18th annual bass fishing tournament.


We are asking the community for nominations in selecting the charity to receive the proceeds from funds raised during the giving campaign and fishing tournament. Charities considered for selection should be 501c3 non-profit organizations and should have a strong connection to a Braidwood employee and/or the local community. 

Earlier this year the Fishing for a Cure committee chose Ronald McDonald House to benefit from this year's event because of the charity's connection to Joe Shields and his 2-year-old granddaughter battling stage 4 cancer. The annual bass fishing tournament raised $55,000 for Ronald McDonald House, which helps millions of families with lodging and other travel expenses as their children receive medical treatment away from home.

Individuals involved in a charity they would like to be considered should contact Communications Manager Brett Nauman at The Employee Giving Campaign and Fishing for a Cure committees will meet in the coming weeks to review nominations and select a charity.
