Fishing with a Side of Football
Ever wished you could go fishing alongside a gridiron great? Now you can. Just head to Islamorada for the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame Celebrity Dolphin Tournament. Scheduled June 27-28 at Founders Park, this tourney pairs anglers with former Miami Hurricanes football stars for a fishing competition featuring cash prizes and trophies in eight categories. NFL Hall of Famer and UM superstar Michael Irvin will host the weekend event, which kicks off with a party on Friday and a full day of fishing on Saturday. Naturally, live and silent auctions at the awards dinner will feature sports memorabilia, including a jersey signed by LeBron James and other must-haves. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys, The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis and the UM Sports Hall of Fame.
