Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County will be holding its 42nd Annual The Big Fish Fishing Tournament at Bahia Mar, 801 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale on September 17 at 8 a.m.
The annual fishing tournament is one of the most storied and longest standing traditions when it comes to events held by BBBS Broward. This event has been occurring for four decades!
Forty years ago, John Weller – a six -time cancer survivor and founder of the non-profit foundation Freedom Waters, an organization responsible for taking children with cancer out onto the water – began the annual fishing tournament. As a part of Weller’s mission to improve lives through the power of nature’s beauty and his love for the water, he has passed on a legacy of strength and hope to every South Florida volunteer and child who has participated in the tournament in the four decades since.
The cost is free.
All Big Brothers/Sisters and Little Brothers/Sisters are encouraged to participate.
