Community fishes for a cure

The community united with NFL players and other sports professionals in early June during the 3rd Annual Fishing for a Cure Tournament.

About 300 people came out to support the David Garrard Foundation, which will apply proceeds from the event to a fund supporting Danijela “Dani” Hughey.  Hughey is a single mom who is battling acute metastatic breast cancer while raising a 3-year-old daughter.

Many special guests were in attendance including Miami Dolphins players Anthony Fasano and Marlon Moore, as well as Jaguars players Derek Cox, Kyle Bosworth, Zach Miller, and Eugene Monroe.

Several of the stars spent the morning fishing, and Moore took the prize for top offshore angler.  Other winners included Scott O’Brien for top inshore angler and Matthew McGowan and Morgan Yonge, junior inshore and offshore anglers.

Guests enjoyed music by Split Tone and wrapped up the night with a silent auction. The auction included star-studded packages like a trip to see a Dolphins game with field passes, a catered dinner at a riverfront home with Garrard and friends, and a round of golf with Jim Furyk.
