Southern Fishing Charities (SFC) organizes and hosts outreach programs that support veterans. Based in South Florida, SFC partners with local organizations to create awareness and raise funds through fishing tournaments and related events.
In addition to fundraising, SFC offers one-of-a-kind fishing experiences. SFC brings the joy of fishing to veterans and their families with on-the-water fishing clinics from award-winning professional fishing teams.
Completely volunteer-based, SFC aims to make a difference in the lives of veterans, using a fun day on the water as a break from stress, illness and injury.
