Go ‘Fishing for Futures’ on Sept. 1

Fishing for Futures

Fishing for Futures, a fishing tournament to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, is planned for Sept. 1 at Causeway Cove Marina in Fort Pierce.

The tournament will be in conjunction with the Day for Kids Celebration, a free, family fun day and will include fishing, an old-fashioned Florida fish fry and shrimp boil, kids zone, games, contest, prizes, bounce houses, vendors and more.

The event will feature both offshore and inshore competitions and a total of $12,000 in prize money.

The captain’s meeting will be on the Friday night, prior to the tournament where boats captains will be given the rules and a list of the day’s activities. The fishing tournament is being organized by Rick Miller and his team at TRM Construction Management.

“This is going to be a great community event to benefit the children who attend the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County,” said Miller. “It’s the first fishing tournament the club has hosted and with both inshore and offshore fishing, everyone is able to participate.”

“We need fishing teams, sponsors, vendors and community support,” said Leonard Villafranco, partner at the law firm of Villafranco & Garcia and title sponsor. “Our goal is to make this another signature event to benefit the kids in our community.”
