Donate to The Cause

Fish For A Cure (F4AC) was started in 2007 by a group of friends and business associates looking for an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, fulfill their passion for fishing, and have fun. After a successful first year, the wife of one of the main participants was diagnosed with cancer. A rigorous treatment schedule and the demands of daily family life nearly saw the end of the tournament. The group members took the reins and decided to turn it into a charitable event to raise money for the facility that was providing cancer treatments Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

After two successful years of raising money for Memorial Sloan Kettering, the group decided to make the tournament benefit a local organization right here in Anne Arundel County: Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute. This initial group of friends who came together in 2007 has evolved to become today’s F4AC Board of Directors, along with F4AC’s invaluable captains, anglers, sponsors, and community partners all of whom have a shared commitment of supporting cancer care in our community.
