Hook A Cure Fishing Tournament to Hit the Waters July 12, 2019
Cape Ann’s Marina and Resort to Host Annual Fundraising Event
Gloucester, MA (June 2019) – Hook A Cure Fishing Tournament, a fundraiser to benefit two local cancer charities, will kick off its second annual event at the Cape Ann’s Marina and Resort on July 12th, 2019. The event will begin early, as captains, crew and anglers leave for a day of deep sea fishing. Cocktails, dinner, awards, raffle and auction to follow after official “weigh in.” Three-time Super Bowl champion and cancer survivor, Joe Andruzzi will attend as a special guest, join anglers as a fisherman, and serve as the Auctioneer. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patients and families will participate, as well.
All proceeds will benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a world leader in adult and pediatric cancer treatment and research, in Boston, MA., as well as The Joe Andruzzi Foundation, which has provided over 380 grants to patients and families in the North Shore area alone totaling over $240,000 in financial support.
Former “Wicked Tuna” Captains from the National Geographic Television Channel Show, will be donating their services, boats and crew, providing a thrilling and entertaining fishing experience to some fortunate anglers.
“Whether you are a beginner or seasoned fisherman, there’s fun for everyone,” says Alexis Morris, Co-Chair. “Participants will fish for Stripers and/or Bluefish, from shore, tournament boat, or on the Lady Sea. It is an exciting event for all.”
“After my Grampy, Russell Morris, an avid fisherman, died from lung cancer in 2013, we rode in the Pan Mass Challenge, walked the Jimmy Fund Walk, and, now, have founded the Hook A Cure Fishing Tournament in his memory. We are so fortunate to have many of our friends join us, with bikes, boats, bait and hope, in our fight against cancer.”
The tournament will begin at 7:00 AM with captains, crew, and fishermen making their way out of the Marina. Pre-registration is required. No experience necessary.
Lunch, drinks and gear will be provided on board.
