Purple Heart of the Bay Charity Fishing Tournament
The Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation (WWIA), a Purple Heart organization, is hosting its Inaugural Purple Heart of the Bay Charity Fishing Tournament on September 10th at Hooks Waterfront Bar and Grill in Ruskin. Held the weekend of 9/11, this event is a great opportunity for the local community to connect with and give back to those Heroes who have sacrificed so much for us and our great Nation.
Purple Heart of the Bay is a grand-slam catch and release tournament with all proceeds benefiting the WWIA. Anglers will compete in both sponsored and open divisions, with prizes awarded for youth and ladies subdivisions—up to $10,000 in cash and prizes total. In addition to logo placement on tournament apparel and programs, corporate sponsorship includes a chartered vessel and a Purple Heart recipient to fish on the team.
