On Monday, May 2nd Nothnagle REALTORS® took part in the 23rd annual Bank of America Casting for Caring sport fishing tournament. Despite the rain and wind a number of licensed charter boat captains took teams of four out on Lake Ontario, with a grand prize of the $1,000 to the person who catches the biggest fish and the most fish. Following the celebration complete with food, entertainment and a silent auction featuring dozens of exciting items held at the Rochester Yacht Club.
In order to take part in the event, Nothnagle sponsored a charter boat with the name ‘Bullseye’. Coming in 3rd place for the day, Armand D’Alfonso and Bill Garland had a great time casting for caring.
All proceeds from the Bank of America Casting for Caring event benefit the American Red Cross, Greater Rochester Chapter. Last year, the Greater Rochester Chapter responded to 249 house fires, providing housing, food, clothing and support for 354 families that lost everything in the blink of an eye. The American Red Cross has launched an initiative to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25 percent over the next five years.
As part of the Home Fire Campaign, the Red Cross is joining with fire departments and community groups nationwide to install free smoke detectors in homes that need them. To schedule an installation, email email@example.com.
