THE POOR GIRLS OPEN IS A LADIES ONLY BILLFISH RELEASE TOURNAMENT BENEFITING BREAST CANCER RESEARCH.
This tournament was started by Capt. Steve Harman as a way for local waitresses and bartenders to have an affordable and fun competition while raising money for a very important cause. The tournament continues to grow with over 200 boats and over 900 lady anglers boats entering. Participation is not limited only to anglers as there are raffle tickets, vendors, tournament merchandise for sale, and other fun events helping to raise money for breast cancer research. The Poor Girls Open has donated over $1.8 million to the American Cancer Society.
