Southwestern Yacht Club 47th Annual Bottom Fishing Tournament

Once again, it’s time to do some rock-codding for charity!

Southwestern bottom tournamentThe Southwestern Yacht Club Anglers will be holding the 47th Annual Bottom Fishing Tournament on May 6, 2017. Once again the tournament will kick off with a full buffet breakfast at the mandatory registration from 5:00 am – 7:00 am at SWYC. Then all the boats line up in front of SWYC for the 6:30 am shotgun start! Weigh-in ends at 3:30 pm and all fish weighed in end up on the dinner table at the awards ceremony!  Cocktails, appetizers, fish fry dinner, awards, raffles, and auctions take us into the evening making it a very fun-filled day.

rockfish tournamentThis year’s tournament will again benefit ElderHelp of San Diego. The Southwestern Yacht Club has adopted ElderHelp of San Diego as the benefactor of Benefit On The Bay, SWYC’s annual three-event fundraising campaign. Over the past few years more than $700,000 has been raised through the efforts of the Southwestern Yacht Club, and the caring businesses and individuals who have donated to this worthy cause.

Proceeds raised through the SWYC Bottom Fishing Tournament help ensure that ElderHelp of San Diego can continue to provide personalized services to help seniors remain independent and live with dignity in their own homes. ElderHelp has assisted over 90,000 older San Diegans and their families through care management, grocery shopping, home share, home safety, information and referrals, as well as elder abuse information and education.

Last year alone, ElderHelp of San Diego provided services to over 5,000 San Diego seniors!
