For Immediate Release:
This year has proven to be a very busy one for Angels N Camo. Angels N Camo is a 501c3 non-profit organization that raises funds to grant hunting and fishing adventure trip wishes for disabled children and children with life threatening illnesses in Eastern North Carolina based in Washington, NC. In 2014, Angels N Camo has already granted six wishes and has one more wish coming up soon.
The year started out with a duck hunt with Gene from Greenville in January and a turkey hunt in April with Alex from Washington. When June came around, things got into full swing. The summer began with Angels N Camo holding their annual fundraiser, the Angels N Camo Summertime Turkey Shoot. The event was a huge success and raised $2,100, even though the weather wasn't the best, the community came out and showed their support.
At the end of June, the fishing adventures began with Jacob from Washington. Jacob loves horses and had a wish to go fishing. So Jacob, along with his father and the Angels N Camo crew, set out to Beaufort, NC to fish along Shackleford Banks. Jacob's wish came true when he got to see the wild ponies and caught lots of black sea bass during the day. The next adventure was with Angel of Williamston. Her wish was to catch a big red drum. Angel, her mom and the Angels N Camo crew set out from Oriental for their adventure. While the big red drum eluded them, they did catch some blue fish and a cownose ray. DJ from Washington had his adventure next.
DJ's wish was for a big red drum as well. DJ, his mom and the Angels N Camo crew set out of Hobucken in their search of the big red drum. After catching several blue fish, croaker, and a sting ray, the big rod zinged off and a huge 57 pound red drum was on the end of the line. The fourth fishing trip was for Garrett from Washington. Garrett, along with his mom, dad, and brother and the Angels N Camo crew traveled down to Oriental for his adventure. The day was a huge success with Garrett and his family bringing home a cooler full of blue fish, flounder, and croaker, along with three puppy drum each 23 to 24 inches in length.
Now as hunting season approaches, Angels N Camo is getting ready for a deer hunting adventure wish for Bryson from Creswell. Also for this hunting season, Angels N Camo will be able to provide an even better experience with their new Action Offroad Trackchair. The group will be receiving their chair by the end of September. The chair was able to be purchased from fundraising and from a $3,000 grant from the Tony Stewart Foundation. The next goal for Angels N Camo is fundraising for a portable hydraulic hunting stand.
Angels N Camo can be found with their truck and trailer set up around at local community events. Their next big fundraising event will be a pancake and sausage breakfast held at Chocowinity Fire Dept on Nov. 22nd, the morning of the Chocowinity Christmas parade. After the parade, Angels N Camo will have a booth set up at Chocowinity Fire Dept Auxiliary Christmas Expo.
