Fishing tournament raises $428K


The 2010 Sabadell Mellon United Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) recently wrapped up another successful event, raising more than $428,000 for the organization, which raises funds for research and initiatives to help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

More than 360 law firms throughout Florida and the United States participated in the tournament. Robert LaTour of Miami won the 2010 Grand Champion title.

“It’s wonderful to be able to raise the amount of money we raise to help find a cure for these terrible diseases, while doing something we all love, and with such a wonderful group of people,” Mitchell Widom said The tournament is the brainchild of brothers Mitchell and Glenn Widom, attorneys with Bilzin Sumberg and Glenn L. Widom, PA, and was inspired by Mitchell’s daughter, Taylor, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2005. Co-chaired by the brothers since 2005, the tournament has raised more than $2.1 million for the CCFA.

The annual tournament takes place in the Florida Keys during May. The 2010 event was held at Hawks Cay Resort in Duck Key.
