The Carolina Lady Anglers are gearing up for their 20th Annual Fishing For the Cure Open Tournament, which will be held Saturday, June 3, 2017. The Lady Anglers are currently seeking local businesses and individuals who are interested in sponsoring the tournament.
All proceeds from Fishing For the Cure are donated to After Care Essentials, which helps women diagnosed and recovering from breast cancer. The mission of the Carolina Lady Anglers is to raise funds to help those affected by breast cancer, while fostering good sportsmanship and promoting saltwater fishing sports.
The tournament is open to men, women and children of all ages. A Captain's Meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 for all those interested in participating. The adult entry fee is $40, and the entry fee for youth 12 years and younger is $10. The entry fee includes a t-shirt, dinner buffet from Charleston Sports Pub and beverages. Triple Dog Dare will also be performing. Door prizes and silent auction items will be available and prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in multiple species categories will be awarded. Eligible species include Trout, King Mackerel, Flounder, Sheepshead, Dogfish (1st place only) and Ladyfish.
The Carolina Lady Anglers donated over $14,000 to After Care Essentials in October 2016. This donation was the result of the club's fundraising effort and the generous contribution of donors and sponsors.
"We are so incredibly proud of our relationship with After Care Essentials, and admire how they help those in the community affected by breast cancer and provide hope," said Alicia Hart, president of the Carolina Lady Anglers. Hart also stressed the importance of the relationship the club has with its donors. "We are thankful for our sponsors, who make our tournament a success year after year."
All sponsors for the upcoming tournament will receive recognition on the club's website and in the tournament brochure. Sponsors donating upwards of $250 will also receive recognition on the back of the official tournament t-shirt. For our 20th anniversary we will also be selling long sleeve performance shirts, visors and hats.
