Fish For A Cure 2020: By the Numbers
Dear friends of F4AC,
Although it was an unprecedented year, our 14th Annual Fish For A Cure Tournament, Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge, and virtual Shore Party raised more than $350,000 to support the Cancer Survivorship program at Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute.
With the impact of COVID-19, the need for cancer care programs and support is greater than ever. Thanks to your generosity and dedication to this fishing and fundraising event, F4AC 2020 had:
- 65 boats registered, 57 of which competed in the Captain’s Challenge with bucks on boats
- More than 220 participating captains and anglers
- 13 of Kentmorr Marina’s Charter Fleet on the water as the 2020 F4AC Marina Challenge champion
- More than 300 fish submitted in the F4AC Tournament, including rockfish, catfish, perch, and a surprising largemouth bass
- The partnership of more than 50 local businesses to help make the event possible
- The #1 boat in the Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge, LaxFish with Captain Steve Morgan, raised $65,845
- More than 2,000 donations made ranging from $5 to $15,000 to support the Cancer Survivorship Program at Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute
“On behalf of all of us, we thank you for the incredible impact that F4AC will have on more than 2,000 patients and their families who will experience a cancer diagnosis and receive care at AAMC this year. We are so grateful.”- Cathy Copertino, Vice President of Cancer Services, Luminis Health.
