Inaugural Fishing Fundraiser Charters New Course

Lighthouse Ladies Aug. 12The waters off Jupiter welcomed the first Lighthouse Ladies fishing tournament this summer to benefit the nonprofit Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches.

Because of the enthusiasm of all of the volunteers, participants and sponsors, 100 percent of the net proceeds were donated to the organization that helps those with visual impairments maintain their independence and gain self-confidence.

Tournament events took place at various locations both onshore and offshore, including the JIB Club, Shipwreck Bar & Grille and Sweet’s in Tequesta. Prizes were awarded for the biggest catch, and raffles, an auction, music, food and drinks helped make the event a success.

Tournament Executive Director Johnny Ringo said more of the same is planned for the second Lighthouse Ladies tournament in 2014.
