For everyone involved with Troutfest this year, I want to say Thank You. Whether you were a donor, attendee, or volunteer, you were instrumental in making this year's Troutfest event a success. For anyone who attended the banquet last night, I hope you enjoyed your evening and thanks again for your support & generosity.
After paying the Hilton catering invoice & tabulating the other marketing expenses, I'm proud to announce that the Little River Chapter of Trout Unlimited netted over $20,000 from the Troutfest banquet. As always, these funds will be used to support the Fisheries Department of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well as fund youth education programs.
One of the highlights of the night was the unveiling of the Steve Moore Youth Education Fund, which was created in honor of the long-time GSMNP Head Fisheries Biologist, Steve Moore. The Little River Chapter of Trout Unlimited is proud to announce that we raised roughly $4,500 for this fund at the banquet.
Thanks again to everyone involved in Troutfest this year!
