BENEFITING THE CHILDREN'S DREAM FUND

May 20, 2022

The Pinellas Association of Insurance Agents (PAIA) is an almost one-hundred year old local association of agencies, companies, and vendors within the insurance industry. PAIA has been a proud supporter of the Children’s Dream Fund for the past 15+ years through a spring fishing tournament. We took a few year hiatus but are back for the 2022 Fishing For Dreams Inshore Fishing tournament, taking place on Friday, May 20th. All proceeds will benefit The Children’s Dream Fund.


This is an organization formed just over forty years ago with the single purpose of fulfilling dreams for children ages 3-21 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and who live in West Central Florida. Dreams vary as much as the personalities of the children served. They may involve meeting a celebrity, a trip, a gift such as a computer or playground, or our most-requested dream, a week at the Give Kids the World Village, which enables a child to visit all of the Orlando-area theme parks. No dream has been refused, except those involving motorized vehicles and firearms. The Children’s Dream Fund is not affiliated with a national organization. They do not telemarket to raise funds. Since its inception in 1981, the Children’s Dream Fund has made dreams come true for over 3,000 children. According to our most recent audited financial report, 85% of all expenses go to make children’s dreams come true. Over 50% of all dream costs are covered by in-kind donations. All funds raised help children in our community. The Children’s Dream Fund strictly adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professional’s Donor Bill of Rights.

Every child deserves hope and a dream and our goal is to continue to make those dreams come true. By participating in the PAIA Fishing For Dreams tournament, you too can be an integral part of making a child’s special wish a reality!
