Barnstable Youth Hockey Fishing Tournament Raises Over 40k
HYANNIS, MA, ISSUED AUGUST 7, 2017…… On Thursday, June 29, the Barnstable Youth Hockey Program’s 8th Annual BYH Fishing Tournament set a record of raising over an astonishing $40,000.
Funds raised by the BYH Fishing Tournament provide the additional resources needed to help expand and make youth hockey more affordable to all members of the community. Now more than ever, local children will be able to participate in programs Barnstable Youth Hockey Association offers, including the scholarship program.
There were 28 boats and over 150 anglers participating in this year’s tournament. The day ended with the award ceremony and dinner provided by Baxter’s Fish & Chips. A special thank you to Sam and Ben Baxter for their significant donation of their facilities.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors and anglers! The tournament would not be a success without the continued generous donations from our local community.
We already look forward to next year. Save the date: Thursday, June 28, 2018!
