Please join the Finger Lakes/Western New York Region in the launch of its first women’s fishing tournament on scenic Lake Ontario. This competitive fishing tournament will bring women from the Rochester and surrounding areas together for a day of fishing and fun with the chance to win a prize for the biggest fish.
Fishing: 1pm – 5pm
Weigh-in: 5pm – 5:30pm
Reception & Silent Auction: 5:30pm - 7pm
Grand Prize (for biggest catch): $1,000
This tournament provides a unique way to network with women in Rochester and spend time with co-workers, clients, friends and family. Teams consist of four women who will be guided by an expert licensed charter boat.
Fishing Spot: $400
Reception Only: $35
The fun doesn’t stop after the boat docks. All are invited back to the Rochester Yacht Club for a cocktail reception. Complete the day enjoying entertainment, specialty mixed drinks and celebrate Cinco De Mayo. Take home some wonderful gifts by bidding on such items as a guided fishing tour, spa and vacation packages, dinner certificates, wine baskets and more.
Our mistress of ceremonies, Rachel Barnhart (@rachbarnhart) from WROC News Channel 8, is sure to make this a fun evening to remember.
Having women participate in this inaugural event reminds us of the trailblazing women who made up the backbone of the Red Cross that Clara Barton founded 1881. Your attendance supports this institution that has remained strong and stable and one that helps many every day during local, national and international disasters.
The Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross responds to nearly 380 families a year who have been victims of a disaster. In addition, we continue to provide training in life-saving skill such as CPR and first aid while also providing nearly half of our nation’s blood supply. Proceeds from this tournament help these vital services and many more such as our services to the Armed Forces. Please contact Lorraine Clements at 241-4420 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
