On Thursday, May 23 spend your morning fishing on Lake Michigan! Alongside the Kiwanis of Michigan Foundation, there will be a fishing outing to commemorate Earl O’Brien while raising money for Child Life programs in Michigan hospitals.  Earl O’Brien spent his life creating opportunities for kids who are disabled and disadvantaged.  In 2005 he launched an offshore fishing tournament to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  To keep his memory and ambitions alive the net proceeds of this event will go directly to Child Life programs in Michigan.  During the fishing excursion, participants will be eligible to win prizes and giveaways!

Earl lived by Kiwanis mission of “improving the world one child and one community at a time.”  The Kiwanis Foundation provides services and resources to children who are a part of non-insurance-reimbursable Child Life Programs.  There are four Michigan Hospitals that Kiwanis provides services to CS Mott Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Mary Free Bed Hospital & Rehabilitation Center, and the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.  The net proceeds of this event will be directed to families in these four hospitals across Michigan.
