Each year in the spring the Exchange Club of Sebastian holds it’s Annual Fishing Tournament for Charity. This was our 24th year. We begin planning the tournament about 4 months after each one ends. We take the proceeds of our Blue Water Open Fishing Tournament and distribute the proceeds to local charities, scholarships for our Sebastian High School students and other causes.
Whatever duties which can be performed by volunteers are done by our Exchange Club, their families and their friends. It is hard work, and in case you haven’t noticed, it’s usually pretty hot as well. Except this year. This year the threat of rain hung over our heads all day. But everyone showed up, worked hard, laughed and we had another successful event.
Our sponsors give generously in order that we may hold this Blue Water Open event and present our prizes to those hard-working fishermen, fisher women and children.
Here is the final photo gallery for this years event. Thanks to John Nardontonia for these photos of the Fishing tournament, and thanks also to Steve Glaser for his photos of our VIP Sponsor party on Friday evening. And Thanks once again to all of the wonderful sponsors and Capt. Hirams.
