Minister for Grand Bahama Michael Darville March 25 pledged his Ministry’s support for the upcoming 3rd Annual Grand Bahama Shipyard Fishing Tournament scheduled for April 6 at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club
In announcing his Ministry’s support of the tourney, Minister Darville said he was pleased to participate in any event whose primary function is to assist the young people of the nation.
He noted that proceeds from the event will benefit the Bartlett Hill Primary School, Martin Town Primary School and Holmes Rock Primary.
Last year’s event raised around $40,000, which benefited schools in east Grand Bahama. Organizers say participation in the 2013 event has already exceeded 2012 and forecast that around $60,000 will be raised for schools in west Grand Bahama this year.
