This month, Atlantic Pacific sponsored a team for the 11th Annual Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure. This tournament was started as Florida’s first and only all-female fishing tournament. The event is made up of fishing, boat decorating, cocktail and costume contests and awards party to raise money for local breast and ovarian cancer patients in financial need.
Bluewater Babes now provides direct support to those in need through its “Out of the Blue” financial assistance fund. Proceeds from both the annual Fish for a Cure events and ongoing fundraising efforts will increase and extend Bluewater Babes’ reach to provide help for those in need in our own community.”As its own nonprofit organization, Bluewater Babes Charitable Trust has proudly donated more than $600,000 from the annual Fish for a Cure event and other year-round events. In 2015, they established their own financial assistance fund “Out of the Blue” where they directly assist local women undergoing treatment for breast or ovarian cancer.
For the costume contest, the team dressed up as ice cream cones and ice cream servers and went on to win the “Best Boat Decorating” award! Atlantic Pacific provided shirts for all of the anglers in addition for the fishing portion.
