Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Hook the Cure Returns to PV
Fishing and golfing enthusiasts return to Puerto Vallarta as 'Hook the Cure powered by IOTEC' gets set for another fantastic weekend filled with fun, frolic and entertainment.
'Hook the Cure powered by IOTEC' is a catch-and-release fishing tournament held every year for the two goals of presenting guests with a fabulous weekend while receiving donations for a good cause. Event organizers announced today that they will be returning to the beautiful Bay of Banderas from November 8-11, 2012.
In the last six years, the tournament has raked in much-needed funds --- $2 million (USD) net --- for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's life-saving research, patient care, education and advocacy programs. The IGFA-qualifying event, part of the Redbone Tournament Series, is sponsored by IOTEC, BJ's Restaurants, Watson Land Company, Norm Wilson & Sons, Millie and Severson, Lancaster Development, American Airlines and others. The event will be chaired, once again, by Bob Huston and Jeff Jennison. Volunteers for the four-day event are coordinated by PVRPV.com, Healthcare Resources, Xocodiva, Charter Dreams and Andale's.
Hook the Cure is not your every day catch-and-release fishing tournament. This is a fishing event where not only do our participants enjoy one of the greatest fishing locales in the world but also enjoy first-class all-inclusive accommodations at the Villa Premiere Hotel and Spa, gourmet meals, relaxing spa treatments, world-class golf at Vista Vallarta Club de Golf, casino gaming, spectacular auction hosted by Los Angeles' radio personality Shawn Parr and headline entertainment by Nashville recording artist and award winning singer/songwriter Lucas Hoge.
