Yesterday’s letter from the friends of Marlene, Duane, and McKenzie Hada says it all:
“Duane Hada and his family have been consistent in supporting the great watersheds and fisheries of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Duane is well-known to a great number of fly fishermen, as a guide, fly fishing instructor and artist. The Hadas’ have contributed much to conservation via donated artwork and personal time to numerous worthy causes. Now they need your help.”
Duane’s wife Marlene is fighting a serious battle with breast cancer, and the medical expenses are mounting daily. Their friends are organizing a raffle to benefit the Hada family. The drawing is on May 17, and ticket prices are only $20, or 6 for $100. The prizes are pretty amazing, and show how important the Hadas are to their friends. They include a day with Dave and Emily Whitlock on the White or Norfolk Rivers (with accomodations and gear), a $6000 L42 River Boat, Simms waders and jackets, several guided trips and, of course, original art by Duane.
To purchase a chance at these prizes and do something good for the Hadas, just visit the Marlene Hada Raffle Web page. You can buy tickets with a credit card or by check. Read more about the benefit here.
