Fishin’ For A Cure

Starting out a number of years ago as a fishing event on the coast of North Carolina, Fishin’ for a Cure has expanded into numerous events and fundraisers over a weeklong period. Local restaurants and stores assist in raising money and hosting events throughout the week and also do giveback events at other times of the year. This event has created a great spirit of service and giving and has had a major impact on the community and its residents.
