Fish For a Cure 2019 took place this past weekend on Saturday, November 2. Seventy six boats registered for the tournament and collectively raised $615,000, beating last year's donation of $500,000!! That is quite a spectacular increase from last year, and all donations benefit cancer survivorship programs at the Geaton and JoAnn Decesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC).

This was the third year that Team FishTalk/PropTalk participated, and we are always so thrilled to be part of such an amazing event. We want to thank everyone who made donations to our team, whether online or by attending ours Beers 'N Bucktails Fundraiser in October, and helped us to once again reach our fundraising goal of $10,000. Our team came in 21st place in the Captain's Challenge, having raised $10,125, and we came in sixth place in the Catch and Release division.
