The 2014 Thompson Fishing Rodeo was a fun success, raising a record amount for the Thompson Foundation and bringing together employees from five Thompson offices, clients, friends and family. Each year Thompson hosts a fishing rodeo to celebrate our employees, clients and coastal community.
Rodeo highlights include a charter fishing trip and two nightly events featuring gourmet grub and socializing. Thanks to great weather, this year's rodeo was well-attended and well-fished. Perhaps the most meaningful part of this year’s event is the record total of $15,000 raised for the Thompson Foundation. Money raised comes directly from rodeo sponsorships and funds grants and scholarships awarded by the Thompson Foundation. “The rodeo was born 12 years ago as an employee get together, but now means even more,” said Mike Manning, Thompson’s Senior Vice-President of Business Development and rodeo organizer. “Now clients and vendors are getting in on the fun and supporting our Foundation, which makes for a very worthy event.”
Thank you to everyone – especially our sponsors and volunteers – for making this rodeo the best yet!
