Hook-A-Cure Fishing Tournament
Our Hook-A-Cure event, held in Gloucester, MA, is a fun, family friendly, fishing tournament and fundraising event hosted by our organization, the Scrawney-Morgan Foundation.
We started this Striped Bass / Bluefish fishing tournament in 2018 to raise funds to combat cancer in memory of Russell "Scrawney" Morris, a lifelong Gloucester resident and avid fisherman, and have been working to make our event fun for anglers and land-lovers alike!
In 2019, we partnered with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation to help us meet one of our core values of raising funds for families financially affected by cancer diagnosis. As of June 2021, his Foundation ( jaf.org ) on just the North Shore has helped families to the tune of over $317,000 in grants!
In 2020, though Covid-19 stopped us in our tracks when it came to fishing - we created our "Pint for a Pint" Brewery Blood Drives that has thus far donated over 177 pints of lifesaving blood to the Dana-Farber- Brigham and Woman’s - Kraft Family Bloodmobile and the demand for these drives continues to grow!
Now in 2021 WE ARE BACK and eager to begin where we left off pre-pandemic! This year we have added the mighty Bluefin Tuna to our fishing divisions!
Our event is August 1st & 2nd, 2021- with our home port being the crowd favorite Captain Carlos Restaurant on Harbor Loop, Gloucester, Ma. Pre-Registration is required. No experience necessary and all rods and reels will be provided by the charter captain and crew. We will fish for Bluefin Tuna, Striper, the elusive Bluefish and Groundfish.
Weigh-in's will be at the Captain Carlos docks on Aug.1st starting at 5:00 PM and Monday, Aug. 2nd at 4:00 PM. and are open to the public! On Monday evening, 8/2/21, your day of fishing will be followed by a buffet dinner, as well as speakers, awards and an auction.
Our event got off to a late start due to Covid protocols - but is now forging ahead! We have less than a week to create a miracle - please join us and help make it happen!
