Cocktails followed by an awards banquet at the Sugarloaf Lodge Restaurant Tiki Bar will begin at 5:30 pm.
The Sugarloaf Showdown Benefit: During the awards banquet, there will be a silent auction of donated, high quality fishing gear and accessories available to the highest bidder. Proceeds from the silent auction benefit the Guides Trust Foundation, which provides emergency funds for fishing guides in the Florida Keys who have been injured or are recovering from illness. This year, the Guides Trust is diligently working to offer assistance to local guides that have been impacted by the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma.
The tournament is open to all anglers and guides. The fee is $250 per 2-person team. This team event is limited to three per boat, with only two fishing.
We look forward to seeing you there.
