The “Fishing Funds the Cure” Tampa Bay Tournament is a signature event for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF). This year, the Tampa Bay Tournament will be held at the amazing Tradewinds Resort on St. Pete Beach with boats launching from MarineMax St Petersburg off Gulfport Boulevard. 

Joshua Lavine, MarineMax General Manager comments, “At MarineMax, we are passionate about boating and family, so when we were given the opportunity to partner with the NPCF for a fishing tournament, we knew it would be a perfect fit. Our crew is ecstatic to help in any way possible to assist in funding the cure for pediatric cancer. We are proud to unite with the NPCF for this cause.”
