Lionfish Bash is this weekend

The Woody Foundation’s 5th Annual Lionfish Bash is this weekend, on July 24 and 25. A lifelong fisherman and diver, the Foundation’s namesake, James “Woody” Beckham, suffered his spinal cord injury making a rugby tackle in January 2011 that rendered him a quadriplegic. Since then The Woody Foundation has raised more than $500,000 to help improve the lives of those with paralysis.

The bash is at 2540 S. Bayshore Drive, the Lion Fish is an invasive species. 

Cost to join is $500 per boat, which includes five ranglers. This includes the awards dinner, t-shirts, raffle tickets, goodie bags and more. For the award dinner only, it's $75 per ticket.

Based in Miami, The Woody Foundation supports locally and internationally: 

Proceeds from the Lionfish Bash will go to Miami’s Jackson Rehabilitation Memorial Hospital a leader in spinal cord injury rehabilitation, and where Woody spent his first months recovering from his injury

They also raise funds so that they can continue to distribute Woody Packs around the world for free, the Woody Pack is a collective of assistive devices that helps people with limited hand functioning live a more independent life 

Help surpass last year’s total donation of $25,000, help support those with paralysis.

Please call or email The Woody Foundation’s executive director, Lucy Foerster at 305-586-3107 or lucy@woodyfoundation.org to get started.

It's interesting how folks get involved in trying to get money, only after, they experience a life altering experience. Why not before? And yes, I would appreciate an intelligent response to my question. Jobie Steppe
