The Annual Gary Nix Memorial BASH ON THE BLUE Party & Fishing Tournament brings the community together for the ever popular pre tournament party and a fun day of fishing, all the while raising critical funds for the abused, abandoned and neglected children served by Kids Charity of Tampa Bay.
This year’s party and fishing tournament will be held at Tampa Harbour, 5200 W. Tyson Avenue, on November 8 & 9, 2012.
The festivities kick off Thursday evening November 8th, from 6:00 – 9:30 pm with a fun party highlighted by dinner, music, casino tables and silent and live auctions.
The inshore, catch and release, fishing tournament is Friday, November 9th, from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm. Fishing is followed by a picnic at Dukes, featuring an awards ceremony with the winner taking home a trophy and $800 in tackle gear and prizes.
Gary Nix was only 16 years old when he passed away. He was a young man with a big heart and dedicated to working with children. He was a fun loving boy who made a lasting impression on his community. The Gary Nix Memorial Bash on the Blue began as a neighborhood effort to heal and to honor Gary. What began as a fun fishing tournament has grown into an event that helps Kids Charity of Tampa Bay serve the most vulnerable children in our community.
