Casting for a Cause 2019

Third Annual Casting for a Cause Fishing Event


Thanks to our sponsors, participants, and volunteers, Casting For A Cause (CFAC) has raised over $9,000 in the first 2 years of the event. This money will continue to fund scholarships at NCTC for students exhibiting financial need in Denton County.


The impact Casting For A Cause is having on students in Denton County is made evident by the feedback of our scholarship recipients.

"As a single mother, I do go through financial constraints with this scholarship I was able to afford my text books and I also see this scholarship as a reward for my excellent performance in my academic work. Thank you so much for this funding” – Cutie Roberts, Nursing Student

“Being a first generation college student, I am determined to obtain my degree.  This scholarship is very important to me because the cost of attending college is entirely up to myself.  I work between 35-50 hours a week while attending NCTC in order to pay for my classes and this scholarship helps me immensely by allowing me to take more classes and work toward my goal” – Rachel Maddalena, Engineering Technology

Fundraising Goal

We have set our event fundraising goal at $8,000 for the the 3rd Annual Casting For A Cause event. We know that budgets are tight, so as you are considering your community outreach requests, it is our hope that you will include our event in your budget.

Where the Money Goes

There are a variety of ways to support the event in helping us reach our $8,000 goal.

  • Corporate sponsorships
  • Individual donations
  • Participation in event
  • Purchase of raffle tickets

In an effort to increase our impact to local college students, we are expanding the 2019 event to support:

  • The NCTC CFAC Scholarship (75%)
  • The Denton Wesley Foundation – Shiloh Food Pantry (25%), a local AUMC student ministry.
    Located at 1501 Maple St in Denton, the Denton Wesley Foundation – Shiloh Food Pantry allows students at NCTC, UNT,  and TWU the opportunity to shop for free groceries. We believe that students should not have to choose between buying groceries or paying for school.
