THANK YOU to our 2014 presenting sponsor:

On Friday and Saturday, June 20-21, the Schwartz Center hosted its 4th annual Fishing For a Cause® tournament.

We closed on Saturday with a celebratory Seaside Dinner with more than 380 people in attendance to support our children and honor our tournament participants.

Fishing For A Cause® was made possible with the support of many volunteers, including a volunteer planning committee that consists of: David Cameron, Joanne Cameron, Tom Clarke, Brian Combra, Robert Gifford, Steve Gonsalves, Larry Hall, Craig Kauffmann, Jason Powell, and Jonathan Schwartz. Volunteer Craig Kauffmann has been with the tournament since it started four years ago, as the Co-director alongside the Schwartz Center’s Development and Marketing Manager, Beatriz Oliveira.

We would like to also acknowledge the generous support of our Fishing For A Cause® 2014 sponsors, in particular our presenting sponsor Clarke Distribution Corporation.

In the words of the Schwartz Center President, Mary Hodgson, “I can’t recognize Clarke, the company, without recognizing Clarke the family. It is said that charity should begin at home, but not stay there. I can assure you that that is the Clarke family’s motto. The Clarke’s give, give and then give more. In addition to being our presenting sponsor, they host an annual appreciation gathering to honor our staff and many other acts of kindness…they touch the hearts of everyone in our organization in so many ways.”
