The KWLA Charity - Carteret Health Care

The Big Rock Board of Director’s announced today a 2015 donation of $25,000.00 to Carteret Health Care. 

Big Rock Board member and KWLA committee chair Casey Wagner commented, “The reason we do this tournament is to raise money for charity.  The event grows bigger every year and it was amazing to celebrate this year’s record of 96 boats”.

Support from the Big Rock Keli Wagner tournament continues to improve the quality of life for cancer patients receiving services such as medical oncology, chemotherapy and hematology.  Patients can spend more than 6 hours per visit to the clinic receiving treatments.  All funds donated to the clinic are used solely for patients comfort and care.

The 19th Annual Keli Wagner Lady Angler Tournament will be coordinated by new hire Madison Maxwell.  Madison’s enthusiasm and attention to detail will set the tournament apart and help make this upcoming year a record setting event.   “After a spectacular year, 2015 sponsors are already signing up”, commented Crystal Hesmer.  “They are helping to make the 19th Annual tournament the best yet!”

The Keli Wagner Lady Angler Tournament is a one-day total release tournament.  Lady Anglers enjoy a great day of boating and fishing, and go home knowing they have helped make lives easier for those battling cancer.

Supporting sponsors such as Alexseal, Tassel’s Boutique, McQueen's Interiors, Release Marine and Bailey’s Fine Jewelry get the opportunity to gain valuable exposure during the one day event and through the week of Big Rock.  Since 1998, sponsor’s such as these have allowed the tournament to donate more than $274,315.50 to women specific worthy charities.
