Please allow up to three months for a response.

Request for Kevin to appear at a charity event/fundraiser

Kevin appreciates all requests. Regrettably, Kevin’s busy schedule and yearlong sponsor obligations do not allow the time necessary to attend many of these worthy events. Occasionally, Kevin and other Elite Series Anglers have the opportunity to attend an event for a worthy cause that is close to an Elite Series Tournament.
