Life Alliance’s First Annual Fishing Tournament A Success
The Miller School’s Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency raised more than $19,000 at its first annual Fishing for Life Tournament on Saturday, June 25. The charity event was designed to raise funds and awareness of the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donations for those awaiting the gift of life through transplantation in South Florida.
Teams won more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, with team Precision taking home the first-place trophy and $5,000 for the highest aggregate weight of five fish. Team Myamicane placed second winning $2,500, and team Never Better came in third for $1,000.
Of the many highlights at the action-packed event, perhaps the most exciting was that all three winning teams donated half of their prize money back to the Life Alliance to support the life-saving mission of donation.
