Tally Ho (Rick Simmons, Stephen Simmons, Carly Simmons and Chuck Bunch) took home first prize in the Fins Weekend Fishing Tournament with an overall weight of 98.3lbs. The quartet won a spot on the team charter on a Miami Dolphins away trip. 43 boats participated in today’s fishing tournament, the weigh-in presented by Hooters and Fishing Awards Ceremony and Live Auction presented by Simrad.
“What an amazing event and we had so much great energy today,” said Jeff Peck, Fins Weekend Tournament Co-Chair. “Yesterday was a beautiful day of golf and we had a lot of boats raising money today for City Year Miami and the work they do in our community.”
Proceeds raised from Fins Weekend, presented by Estrella Insurance, will benefit City Year Miami, an education-focused nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to help keep students on track to graduate. In 2015, the foundation will sponsor City Year programs at Miami Carol City and Miami Norland Senior High Schools. Fins Weekend is the signature event of the educational pillar of Miami Dolphins Foundation.
