The 10th annual St. Johns Builders Council Fishing Tournament supports Home Again St. Johns, a local charity.
The 10th annual St. Johns Builders Council Fishing Tournament, which included 49 captains and their crews in support of Home Again St. Johns, a local charity, was April 14 at the Northeast Florida Marlin Association Camachee Harbor. For the fourth year, the presenting sponsor was Sterling Specialties.
“The fishing tournament is one of the most popular events on our calendar,” said SJBC Director Leona Brown. “We had a beautiful day, and everyone had a great day of fishing.”
SJBC chair Michael Davis agreed.
“The perfect day ended with a perfect evening when captains, crew, family and SJBC/NEFBA members were treated to a barbecue dinner provided by Rocky Bishop of Premier Windows and Doors,” Davis said.
Harley Bryan of Construction Solutions donated a Green Mountain Pellet Grill for the raffle. Dave Caputo, SEDA Construction, was the winner.
“We not only had a great day but proceeds from the event help a local group dedicated to eradicating homelessness in St. Johns County,” Davis said. “Our members are generous and some volunteer at local charities, so supporting this event was right up their alley.”
Home Again St. Johns, founded in 2011, is a nonprofit organization coordinating a multiagency system that engages the community to help individuals, families and veterans experiencing homelessness return to self-sufficiency.
“Since housing is the work of the SJBC and NEFBA, it is only natural to help end homelessness,” Davis said. “The agency is developing facilities to offer supportive housing, medical services and direct clients to psychological services, addiction treatment, education, job training and occupational coaching.”
In the past year, Home Again St. Johns helped more than 700 homeless men, women and children. For more information about Home Again St. Johns, visit at homeagainsj.org.
