Happy New Year!
On behalf of the Houston Big Game Fishing Club, we would like to wish you a very happy, successful and prosperous 2018!
2017 turned out to be quite a year for the Club! We h
osted a tremendously successful Red, White and BID banquet in March and the Lone Star Shootout in July. With 49 boats fishing the Shootout, the optional side pot reached an incredible $812,100! 5% of the side pot was donated to the Club's Charitable Program, which funded the Scholarship Program, donations to The Billfish Foundation, R
onald McDonald House, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Turning Point Tournament, Port O'Connor Toy Run and the Houston Safe Boating Council.
We are proud to have also organized the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund in September for members of our offshore community who were devastated by the hurricane. In addition to a $20,000 donation to the fund by the Lone Star Shootout, we received $24,860 in private donations and $79,000 from our friends in the fishing and boating industry. The donations totaled an awesome $123,860!
We want to thank our members, donors, corporate sponsors and committee members for your time, your generosity and your continued support! We look forward to seeing you at the Club's upcoming events!
