Cystic Fibrosis Virtual Fishing Tournament

September 13th – 18th


2019 was a fantastic year for our tournament, raising over $100,000, as well as for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) with the FDA approval of Trikafta, a transformative milestone in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.

Now, at a time of unprecedented hope and unrelenting determination to explore all opportunities that could lead to a cure and enhance lifesaving care, we ask that you continue supporting this year.

Our goal this year is to raise $50,000 and “Fish For a Cure” virtually for all people with CF!

We hope that you will participate in this unique experience and come together with your passion and conviction as you always do…year over year.  

Gifts received this year will be in honor of Gary Ellis, founder of the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series. Gary Ellis also inspired WTS to establish our WNY tournament ~ Lower Niagara Sport Fishing Challenge.

We know the virtual result will still be the same…fishing, fun and raise funds and awareness to help the CF cause. Looking forward to seeing all your you all virtually in September!
