CCFW holds its annual fundraiser - a saltwater fishing tournament - the 3rd weekend in October on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The proceeds go to support our club’s many charitable donations and activities. Each year, Cape Hatteras charitable needs are identified by community leaders to receive a significant portion of tournament proceeds. In the past, included among CCFW tournament proceed recipients have been the local Meals on Wheels, the Food Bank, the Fessenden Center, as well as individuals in need.
31st Annual Surf Fishing Tournament
The 2016, 31st Annual Surf Fishing Tournament is over. Thanks to the 500+ people who entered. Thanks especially to those who donated to the two charitable causes we raised money to help this year. Thanks to the participants and contestants in our 2016 tournament, we raised $3,570 in our raffle. This year we split this between Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation (in honor of Susie Coates, one of our beloved members who died of cancer this year), and towards Hatteras Island disaster relief, specifically to the Hatteras Ladies Fire Auxiliary. In addition to the $1785 to each, several prize winners donated their cash winnings back to the disaster relief cause, and a couple of people also came forward to donate money to the cause. Further, a Richmond-based fishing club presented a check for $1000 to CCFW for the disaster relief fund. That brings a total to $3,215, which we deposited in the account of the Hatteras Ladies Fire Auxiliary. CCFW is proud to be in a position help these two fine organizations who do so much to help the people who are in such need.
Fish were caught in all categories, the weather was great, and it looked liked most everyone I talked with had fun. We are already looking forward to next year -- October 21 & 22, 2017. Mark your calendars.
Thanks to all the people who came to our tournament and supported us in this effort. Hope to see you next year,
-- Mickey Kelliher, Chairman
2017 dates: October 21 & 22 -- for 31 years, always the 3rd weekend in October.
