2013 Raymond James & RSA Boca Grande Classic

The 10th Annual Raymond James & RSA Boca Grande Classic Presented by Gasparilla Inn & Club Redbone@Large event was held May 1-3, 2013 at the Gasparilla Inn & Club on Gasparilla Island, Florida to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Celebrity Ed Marinaro served as host and emcee for the event, which was sold out attracting dozens of anglers to support the cause.

This year we were pleased to announce that RSA joined the team and are one of our new title sponsors partnering with Raymond James to support the cause.  Celebrity Jim Craig, Olympics Gold Medalist attended for the first time with wife Charlie and donated personalized signed jerseys for our live auction raising over $5,000! Approximately $90,000 was netted to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Boca Grande fishing tournament has raised more than $900,000 over the past 10 years.

Team Grande Champion Anglers Peter Baccile and Jackson Hsieh were guided by local Captain Billy Barton and they won three different awards. This was the first time they attended the event and are excited to come back next year to compete for the top award once again!

The tournament is scheduled for May 13-15, 2014 at the Gasparilla Inn & Club. If you are interested in attending please contact Jennifer Buchanan at CFF 954-739-5006. I would recommend booking a boat entry ASAP, it is predicted to be sold out.
