With help from many of Joe’s colleagues, friends and family members, the International Union of Operating Engineers permanently cemented Joe’s legacy by establishing the JOEP Legacy of Dreams annual DREAM MAKER campaign in 2020. That legacy, and Joe’s love for hunting and fishing, is permanently preserved and honored as a Catch-A-Dream Dream Maker. Last year, in its inaugural year, JOEP raised enough to fully fund 10 child trips! We lost Joe 2 years ago, and now in Joe’s memory, and in honor of his wife, Nina, and family we seek to continue his Dream Maker status on an annual basis. Will you join us in this worthwhile challenge?
Catch-A-Dream Foundation grants once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing experiences to children 18 years old or younger who have a life-threatening illness.
The Dream Maker Club is a special group of people who, through a tax-deductible cash contribution of $4,500 or more, become the uniquely designated sponsor for one of our very special Catch-A-Dream children. This $4,500 contribution covers our average out-of-pocket expense for a child’s adventure.
