Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure is proud to have donated $100,000 from the 2016 Fish for a Cure tournament and event to long-standing local charities Cancer Alliance for Help & Hope, H.O.W. - Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper, the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program at Jupiter Medical Center and its own "Out of the Blue" financial assistance fund that supports local patients in financial need who are undergoing treatment for breast or ovarian cancer.
This year’s tournament yet again raised the bar, with more than 50 decorated boats on the docks at Sailfish Marina Resort, the amazing sounds of the electric 80’s band “Hot Pink”, the Tito’s Handmade Vodka “Woody” RV, cocktail and costume contests and so much more. More than 2,000 people and over 100 boats came out to join the babes for an incredible weekend on September 30 and October 1.
Bluewater Babes would like to thank its generous sponsors, without whose support, much of the event’s success would not be possible. The Presenting Babe Sponsor was Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Premier Babe Sponsors included Dex Imaging and Engel Coolers. Pink Marlin Sponsors were Jupiter Medical Center, The Gardens Mall, The Berlin Family Foundation and Sailfish Marina Resort. Pink Wahoo Sponsors included WIRK, Jupiter Magazine, Crown Automotive, Danielle Robinson Family Foundation, Lamont Harris and the Mark E. Bryant Charitable Trust. Pink Tuna Sponsors included Absolut Joy, American Paving Fabrics, Balegal Group, Cheney Brothers, Earl Stewart Toyota, MacGregor Yachts, Platinum Properties, Rielly Construction Corp., Seagate Construction, South Florida Radiation Oncology, Thomas D. Rielly PA and Venture by American. A special thank you also goes out to long-time event sponsor and partner Grand Slam Tackle & Marine Center for their continued support of this event.
Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure has and will continue to be Florida’s premier all-female fishing tournament. “We feel so blessed by the support of the community, our sponsors, friends and family that we are able to raise more funds each and every year, helping the increasing number of local breast and ovarian cancer patients in financial need,” said Jennifer McGrath, Director. “With the excitement still fresh in our minds, we have already started planning for next year’s event, which will again be presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and be held on October 6 & 7, 2017 at Sailfish Marina Resort. Mark your calendars and please join us for the most fun, most talked about fishing tournament around!”
