Fish For A Cure held a Captain's Party for the fundraiser on Oct. 30 and opened the evening by sharing some history, words of thanks to all involved and the current fundraising figures. A family facing a battle with cancer shared how, through Anne Arundel Medical Center’s programs, Fish For A Cure dollars directly helped them navigate their challenges. A fishing expert then shared information on November rockfish habits and behaviors and answered angler’s questions.

An additional highlight of the evening was news of a $10,000 donation from Northrop Grumman, Fish For A Cure’s largest single donation to date. At the time of the Captain’s Party, more than $140,000 had already been raised for a 2013 donation to the Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Fish For A Cure has raised over $400,000 to directly support cancer patients and for cancer research since 2008.
