Alex went for a boat ride and even got to try his hand at fishing for a few minutes.He had a soccer game earlier in the morning and scored another goal! That brings his total to 6 – watch out David Beckham!

Tournament events kicked off Friday evening, April 20th, with a pizza social and a 170 item raffle.  The sports memorabilia section, a favorite of the anglers, included a game jersey signed by Jaguars running back Fred Taylor, a basketball signed by Gators Head Coach Billy Donovan and a limited edition poster signed by Tiger Woods.

The highlight of the evening was the introduction of ALEX, who won the hearts of everyone.

The following morning, despite blustery winds, the anglers caught a number of fish, including tournament record breakers in the bass and trout categories.  During the weigh-in, volunteers, anglers and guests were treated to complimentary hamburgers served by Outback Steakhouse.  The evening concluded with the awards ceremony.

We extend a very special thank you to our wonderful volunteers and many sponsors who insure the children’s dreams become a reality.  We appreciate all you do!
