Halifax Sport Fishing club hosts tournament at Bethune Park in Port Orange to benefit those with special needs.
On the first Saturday of every May for the last 28 years, the Halifax Sport Fishing Club has hosted a fishing tournament dedicated to enriching the lives of special needs individuals. Through donations, participants are provided with their own rod, reel, bait, and lunch. Fifty-seven participants, along with their caregivers, showed up at Bethune Park in Port Orange, ready to fish.
The participants were each paired with a volunteer angler to ensure their success. Every participant took home a prize, and those who caught a fish took home a trophy. This event was previously held at the docks underneath the Port Orange Bridge until the hurricanes damaged them.
