We're Looking for Sponsors
South King County Puget Sound Anglers is looking for sponsors of our 16th annual Salmon Derby to be held on August 5, 2017. The South King County Puget Sound Anglers Salmon Derby is the largest Salmon Derby in the Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia area. We expect that this year’s derby will attract up to 500 participants.
The derby will have weigh stations at Point Defiance Marina in Tacoma, Narrows Marina in Tacoma and Des Moines Marina in Des Moines. The awards ceremony hosted at the Point Defiance Marina will have programs for participants, visitors and children.
We will have Derby Posters in prominent display at all marinas and sporting goods stores in the Puget Sound Area. In addition to an ad in Northwest Sportsman Magazine, the derby will be mentioned on local outdoor radio programs and links on Steelhead University and Steelhead Girls. Your Logo will be proudly displayed on our webpage.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization EIN 26-3071249. As an all-volunteer organization 100% of the proceeds from the derby go toward the enhancement of fisheries in the Pacific Northwest. The programs we support are Marine Science College Scholarships, Mid-Sound Fisheries Enhancement Group, Summer Youth Conservation Camp, Highline Marine Science Summer Camp, Wounded Warriors, Northwest Straits Initiative and CCA.
