Grand Slam Celebrity Fishing Tournament
The Yerrid Foundation Grand Slam Celebrity Fishing Tournament presented by Bonefish Grill is the premier fishing tournament on Florida’s West Coast. It will be held October 17-19, 2014, at the breathtaking Renaissance Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida. This festive weekend is filled with fishing, food, and fun for a very special cause!
The weekend kicks off on Friday morning at 10:00am with The Steve Yerrid Kid’s Fishing Derby, which gives children in the community who are battling cancer the opportunity to simply be kids and fish alongside celebrities, top area fishing guides, sponsors, and volunteers. Other activities include a parade, aquatic exhibitions, training in knot tying, lunch, and an awards ceremony where every child is honored.
Friday evening’s Fishermen’s Ball begins at 6:30pm and brings together tournament sponsors, anglers, celebrities, and guides to support pediatric cancer research. Guests will enjoy cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music, and an incredible auction in the Renaissance Vinoy Ballroom.
On Saturday and Sunday, participants will enjoy two full days of competitive inshore fishing for redfish, snook, and trout.
It’s a weekend packed with fantastic events and we hope you will join us. Let’s reel in a cure for childhood cancer!
