CAPE CORAL, FLORIDA (July 8, 2014) – TowBoatUS, a marine salvage company based in Cape Coral, announces the 2nd Annual Offshore Rodeo & Reggae Party fishing tournament was a huge success! TowBoatUS was a sponsor for the event, which took place June 7th, 2014 and benefited the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida. More than $70,000 in proceeds were raised from this year’s event.
“We are thrilled to be a supporter for this event,” said Richard Paul of TowBoatUS Cape Coral. “It was a fun day for everyone involved, from the participants to the spectators. In addition, it feels good to be a part of something that is helping such a worthy cause.”
The Offshore Rodeo & Reggae Party brought out anglers of all ages, who spent the day reeling in a variety of species. Anglers wrangled in 10 different species for a chance to reel in big prizes; African Pompano, Cobia, Dolphin, *Grouper, Hogfish, Kingfish, Snapper, Triple Tail, Tuna and Wahoo. They then enjoyed their fresh catch for dinner, prepared compliments of the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant.
During the main event, a Kid’s Fishing Tournament was also held for ages 3-12, which took place at Port Sanibel Marina. Children had the opportunity to earn a “fishing license” by visiting a number of learning stations, then got to bait their line in hopes of a big catch! Afterwards, the kids were entertained by Ronald McDonald himself and enjoyed lunch compliments of McDonald’s.
In addition to TowBoatUS, other sponsors of the event included: Fuccillo Kia, Nor-tech, Miloff Aubuchon Realty Group, Port Sanibel Marina, Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant, Sunset Air, Arthur Printing, News-Press, Mortgage 1, Vein Specialists, FRANKE, Artesian Pools, Capital Bank, Harley Davidson, Florida Weekly, Edison Oil, Suncoast Beverage, Wicked Dolphin Rum, Fish Florida, Woody’s Grille, and Sanibelsteve.com.
The next Offshore Rodeo & Reggae Party is scheduled to be held in June of next year.
