Kevin Court, a Miami-Dade firefighter, and his wife, Maida, have been organizing a children’s fishing tournament for the past six years raising funds for Miami Children’s Hospital Craniofacial Center. Recently the Court family presented a $20,473 check to the hospital, money raised at this year’s tournament, bringing the total they have raised for the Craniofacial Center to over $75,000.
“We can’t write a check that big, but we can donate our time to raise that money for families less fortunate,” Court said. “We do everything with volunteers and through donations, with a huge help from Local 1403 Charities and the Dade County Firemen’s Benevolent Association.”
The Court family plans to continue organizing the annual fishing tournament and helping Miami Children’s Hospital.
The fishing tournament is held annually at Sands Cut Sandbar, Biscayne Bay, Florida. This year 110 children and 75 adults participated in the tournament.
