A community-supported, volunteer powered, nonprofit organization, Fish to Make a Difference will be hosting a booth and sharing its mission with the boating community/marine industry at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from November 3-7th.  Booth space has been generously supplied by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA).

Fish to Make a Difference “heals through adventure” by providing fishing trips free of charge.  to children battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and their families. The organization works closely with Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to identify families that would most benefit from a day of family fun and relaxation while in the midst of one of the most trying experiences parents can face.
