Eighth Annual NEFAR Charity Bass Fishing Tournament Set For April 30 | Community Spirit
For the eighth consecutive year, the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) will raise funds for the Haven Hospice Roberts Care Center in Palatka through a catch-and-release Charity Bass Fishing Tournament on April 30. NEFAR donates one hundred percent of all proceeds raised to Haven Hospice and has donated more than $124,000 during the past seven years.
Two-person fishing teams leave the Palatka City Dock at safe light, and weigh-in is scheduled for 3 p.m. Teams compete for prizes, including a $2,500 guaranteed payback for first place and a $1,000 guaranteed payback for the big fish of the Tournament. There is also an 80 percent payback to one in every seven boats. An additional $250 cash drawing for boaters who are present immediately follows the Tournament.
Tour nament registration, as well as event sponsorship opportunities and complete event details, are available at www.NEFARBass.org or by contacting Nancie Zimmerman at 386.325.2965 or Glenn East at 904.394.9132.
