Help the Jimmy Fund reel in much-needed funds for cancer research and care at the 20th Anniversary of the Joe Cronin Memorial Jimmy Fund Fishing Tournament.
In 2011, more than 400 anglers participated in this two-day-long bluefish tournament that kicked off at Nauticus Marina in Osterville, Mass. Fishing gear and an on-board lunch were provided, as well as the boat that took the anglers out to top fishing spots off of Cape Cod.
The tournament also offered participants a full day of children's activities, dinner, entertainment, awards, and a live and silent auction. The tournament honors the life of Red Sox great and former American League president, Joe Cronin. Participants raised more than $250,000 in 2011, bringing the event's cumulative fundraising total to more than $3 million.
BNY Mellon, primary corporate sponsor since 1998, joins a host of individuals and anonymous donors in making the event possible.
