Jacksonville, FL – The Northeast Florida Sportsman Forum is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual 2013 Northeast Fishing Tournament and Bash. The event will be held on September 27th and 28th at Beach Marine on Jacksonville Beach, located at 2315 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32250.

The 2nd Annual Northeast Fishing Tournament and Bash is to benefit Taylor Haberman, the teen daughter of a JSO Deputy who was born with Congenital Heart Disease and is in need of a heart transplant. Over the years, Taylor has undergone several open-heart surgeries and has developed an extremely rare side effect called Protein-Losing Enteropathy (PLE) as a result of one of her surgeries. After relentless studies and medication trials without success, Taylor was admitted to the hospital on January 2, 2013 and will remain there until she receives a new heart.

The event is open to the public and the cost will be $40 per angler for both inshore and offshore fishing. Each registered angler will receive entry into the tournament, a Captain’s Bag, T-Shirt, dinner, and a beverage. Fishing can be done by boat, canoe, kayak, or from the pier, dock, or surf. Proceeds from sponsorship funding and tournament fees will be used to benefit Taylor Haberman in her search for a new heart. The Captain’s Meeting will be held at Beach Marine on Friday, September 27th from 6:00-9:00 PM, and the tournament will take place on Saturday from 7:00 AM until weigh in at 1:00 PM. After weigh-in, prizes will be awarded to top anglers. The bash will continue on Saturday until 8:00 PM. The event will feature live music and a raffle with a large number of quality prizes.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Contact Anthony Edmonston at (904) 472-6871 to become an event sponsor. To donate to Taylor directly, visit https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/h9n2/taylor-haberman-heart-transplant.
