DUCK KEY, FL – After a one-year relocation to Marathon due to the impact of Hurricane Irma, the 4th annual Tom Thumb Mahi Mayhem Invitational Fishing Tournament returned to Hawke’s Cay Resort on Duck Key with a record number of sponsors and participants.
With beautiful weather, impeccable facilities, determined fishermen and big-hearted sponsors, Tom Thumb Food Stores was able to raise enough donations to present $35,000 each to Samuel’s House and Lotus House – The $70,000 in total donations raised marks the largest-to-date for this popular, and growing, annual fishing event.
“We could not have imagined such a response by our partners and sponsors, this year was the best yet and we’re excited to keep growing the Mahi Mayhem Invitational so we can further support wonderful organizations such as Samuel’s House and Lotus House.
We are truly grateful to the many vendors who continue to support this event and especially to McLane for their continued enduring partnership. The Tom Thumb Mahi Mayhem Invitational fishing tournament is a fantastic experience that truly benefits everyone involved.” – Jim & Tom McCarthy, Owners of Tom Thumb Food Stores, Inc.
