Casting for a Cause, a saltwater fishing tournament that raises money for charities each year, wrapped up today in Erath.

The event began Thursday and ended with a final weigh-in today at Don’s Boat Landing. Other activities included a silent auction and a live auction, and on Saturday there was live music at the landing.

The event is held annually to raise money for a chosen charity. This year, the chosen charity was the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. All proceeds benefit that charity.

“We just want the families out here today to just make memories because its about family and that’s what is most important,” said Liz Broussard, a volunteer. “We also wanted to raise awareness about suicide prevention.”
