A message from The Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation:
"Fish Tales Fishing Club Nets Huge Catch of Toys and Gift Cards for
Treasure Chest Foundation
Fish Tales Fishing Club in Oak Forest netted over 300 toys, $340 in gift
cards and $710 recently to benefit the Treasure Chest Foundation. During
the past twelve years, the club hosted a Christmas party and asked
members to bring a toy, gift or gift card for children fighting cancer. This
year the party was cancelled due to the coronavirus, but the coronavirus
did not stop fishermen Fred Howes and Frank Knight as they asked the
members to drop off toys and gifts at Frank Knight’s house every
Saturday for eight consecutive weeks. The catch was huge.
Fish Tales Fishing Club ( is an organization
of men and women who meet monthly to discuss fishing techniques,
conduct seminars about local lakes and to support the South Suburban
Special Recreation Association by organizing weekly fishing trips
throughout the summer.
Fish Tales Fisherman Fred Howes said, “I love what the Treasure Chest
Foundation is doing. Our club was very generous, and we enjoy bringing
smiles to the faces of kids fighting cancer. We never thought of not
collecting.” Frank Knight chimed in by saying, “It’s what we do.”
Treasure Chest Foundation CEO and Founder Colleen Kisel expressed her
gratitude for the generous support shown by the Fishing Club members.
“The Fish Tales Fishing Club members have been in our corner for twelve
years. Each passing year their toy and gift card drives are bigger and
better,” said an appreciative Ms. Kisel. “The Fishing Club’s tremendous
support will brighten the lives of so many brave children and teens
battling cancer.”
Fish Tales Fisherman Fred Howes and Webmaster and Fisherman Frank
Knight display the Fishing Club’s fresh catch of toys at the Treasure Chest
Foundation’s Orland Park warehouse. The toys and gift cards they landed
during the Club’s recent drive-by toy drive will bring smiles of joy to
thousands of children and teens battling cancer across the nation."
