The Roofing Contractors Association of South Florida (RCASF), a not-for-profit trade association, raised $225,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and $25,000 for the International Game Fish Association's Junior Angler's Educational Program through its June 12 fishing tournament.
The tournament was held at Hawk's Cay Resort on Duck Key with a banquet that followed.
"It was astonishing to see roofing contractor after roofing contractor stand up when the call came for a Make-A-Wish Signature Sponsorship donation of $5000 to grant the wish of one child," Make-A-Wish Southern Florida COO Richard Kelly said.
An awards ceremony took place at the IGFA on Aug. 4.
"RCASF truly believes in our wish-granting mission," said Norm Wedderburn, CEO and president of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Southern Florida. "RCASF has literally changed the lives of thousands of people, children and their families, who are affected by critical illnesses."
