National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Fishing Tournament

National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Fishing Tournament
Last month, DryCase joined The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that focuses on funding research to find a cure for childhood cancer. The fundraising event is known as the Grand Slam Fishing Tournament, and this past year marked the 19th successful year of this wonderful event. This is the largest inshore fishing tournament on the east coast; the event featured 70 fishing boats and 3 kinds of fish to catch and compete with including Snook, Trout, and Redfish.

The first day of the tournament consisted of the volunteers taking the kids fishing off the dock and teaching them the basics of how to prep their rod and reel, cast, and ultimately, reel in the big ones. The tournament took place over the next two days in the flats of St. Petersburg, Florida. Each team purchased a boat for $5,000 to participate. This resulted in over $1 million being donated to the NPCF.
Dry Corps CEO, Dr. Roy Archambault, a.k.a. Dr. Arch, represented well for team Dry Corp, catching a Grand Slam meaning he snagged one of each of the competition fish throughout the two-day tournament. That wasn't all though – DryCase donated at cost a combination of 300 of our Basin, Masonboro, and Mossy Oak Shadow Grass Blades Backpacks to the tournament for each participant and their captains. According to Dr. Arch, the day was a victory for everyone.

“It was a pleasure and an honor to join 300 wonderful giving human beings and fish in the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Grand Slam Fishing Tournament. I am grateful that Dry Corp can help this organization find a cure for cancer and help those children in need. This organization is especially near and dear to my heart. When I was 4 years old, my best friend, Danny Downey, passed away due to leukemia. Every day we would play in our backyard, and then, suddenly he was gone. That was my first exposure to the insidiousness of this disease. It made a monumental imprint in my life.” Dr. Arch, CEO

DryCase also plans to sponsor the NPCF in February at their event in Tampa called the Sunshine Project Summit Dinner.
