SHARKATHON


SHARKATHON

Sharkathon is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created by surf fishermen for surf fishermen. Several of us sat on the beach one night and conceptualized what is now a proven format, a tournament where the only thing taken from the sea is a memory and a photograph. After several years of operation, we are realizing the dream we had that night on Padre Island. An idea has been transformed into a successful tournament series with substantial payouts and great prizes awarded to those who participate. Since 2004, our participants have risen from 50 to a self-imposed capacity of 850, and our prizes have increased from $2,500.00 to more than $80,000 in cash and prizes. Sharkathon serves as a fund-raising entity for the several non-profit and educational organizations. Proceeds from raffle sales have been used to promote educational opportunities for underprivileged children.
