2021 Fishing Derby

Have you heard?!! We are "Hooked on Changing Lives" here at Focus, Inc.! 

 At Focus, Inc., we are changing lives daily for adults and children with developmental disabilities. We do this through our adult programs, children's programs, and the individualized care that we offer to our consumers. Now we are asking for your help!

The fishing derby will be held on a beautiful private lake and packed with fish. We started the fishing derby in 2015 and raised over $5,000 from our generous sponsors and had over 100 people to attend the event. Each year, we would love to see those numbers rise!
All proceeds from this event will help to fund activities, programs and needs for our deserving participants. Sponsorships and donations are 100% tax deductible, as we are a non-profit organization.
If you or someone you know would like to be a sponsor for the fishing derby, please contact Amanda Perry or Sabrina Haley Woodson at (870) 935-2750.
