Our Great Volunteers
We are extremely thankful for all of the many volunteers who help support this great cause and without or Veterans, we wouldn't have an event to volunteer for. Thank you all!
Captain Cass Coroiescu
Cass Coroiescu is the founder and fleet captain of the Veterans Summer Slam and has a deep passion for the sport of fishing and the outdoors. Still, no passion is stronger than his love for his country and the freedom that he and all Americans share thanks to the sacrifice of the brave men and women of the United States military. Cass's mission is to give back to those Veterans who may not have the opportunity or means to enjoy the things he is so passionate about. We are on a mission to do for those that so willingly have done for us.

Become a Captain or Angler
We are on the hunt for volunteers, sponsors, and donors to help raise awareness for our cause and ensure that we deliver a fun and impactful event. Anglers must meet the event critera "for veterans" and will be placed on a waiting list. Participation is dependent on having enough captains and boats to accomodate all participants.
