Casting for a Cause

This is something every dad will love! The Vermilion Parish Tourism Commission held their Casting for a Cause in partnership with American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The event is all about removing the stigma against suicide by connecting with the community and have a friendly fishing competition.
Volunteer Liz Broussard says, “I think that a lot of people we don’t know who have been affected and when we have an event like this you know that you’re not alone in this type of situation, whether it’s two months or two years ago, were just all in that same group and we come here today on this beautiful Fathers day weekend and celebrate our loved ones.”
All of the funds raised will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and help with research throughout the US, to help educate the people on suicide public policy and prevention, and support for survivors of suicide loss.
