“Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cape Cod & the Islands is proud to announce that the Big 3 inaugural Fishing Tournament raised $239,185 to help us better serve local Cape Cod & Islands kids. This is the most successful fundraising event in the history of our local agency!
We would like to extend a special thank you to our Event Co-Chairs, EJ Jaxtimer and Jeff Leerink, and our entire Big 3 Committee. Their time and effort, in addition to the support from local sponsors and our hosts at the Wychmere Resort & Beach Club, made this event an even greater success than we could have imagined.
It was a perfect day on and off the water with over 200 attendees and 27 boats. Congratulations to Paul Marshall, with the bluefish catch of the day, and Mike Howard, with the winning striped bass! Auctioneer Billy Costa encouraged some incredible auction item bidding and former Little Brother, Gilbert Ricci of Nauset Disposal, shared his powerful experience of being a matched with a Big Brother and the life-long impact that our program has had on his life and so many other children facing adversity.
To learn more about this event please contact the Cape & Islands office at 508-771-5150. The 2015 event will be held on July 16 & 17 at the Wychmere Beach Club.
Thank you again to everyone who attended, donated, and sponsored the inaugural Big 3 Fishing Tournament. You made a huge impact on the lives of the Cape Cod & Islands kids and we would not have been able to achieve our fundraising goal without your help.”
