The Crosthwait Memorial Fishing Tournament has a long history of giving back to our local community. In keeping with the founding tournament, only amateur fisherman may participate. Winning anglers are awarded with trophies, cash, and prizes solely derived from their entry fees. Charitable funds directed back to the local community are derived from sponsors, advertisers, and gifts.
Proudly, the Crosthwait has donated over $150,000 back to the community over the last 10 years. Whether through providing scholarships to support the education of local young anglers, supporting the Marine Mechanics Program at Manatee Technical College and the Fish and Game Association, the Crosthwait Committee is proud of our philanthropic mission and continued support of our local community.
