For the fifth consecutive year, the Ask.com team helped sponsor and participated in the Fishing Derby for Special Kids, hosted by the East Bay Regional Park District. The event took place at Lake Temescal in Oakland, CA, where the Ask volunteers were paired up with kids with special needs for a morning of fishing, arts and crafts, face-painting, and games.
It was a gorgeous, sunny day and many of the kids were anxious to catch their first fish with the help of the Park District volunteers and their Ask buddies. Some were more inclined to indulge in the bubble table, decorating their own personal tote bags, or just tossing a ball around.
It was great to get out of the office with our colleagues and spend time with some very special kids at this fun event. We look forward to continuing this wonderful tradition!
