BRICK, N.J., (June 9, 2015) – MarineMax Brick announced today that will be sponsoring the 2nd Annual Warriors for Warriors charity shark tournament. The tournament is a fundraiser run by former U.S. Navy SEALs that raises money for charities that support combat warrior veterans. This year the tournament is supporting Operation Restored Warrior, a veteran operated charity focused on helping to prevent veteran suicide.

“This is the second year we have decided to sponsor this great charity event,” explained Matthew Cini, MarineMax Brick Store Manager. “Supporting the men and women who have served this country on the battlefield is a duty and an honor. We are proud to play a small part through our sponsorship.”

This two day event, June 12 and 13, is a rare shark tournament that allows overnight fishing. Large mako shark purportedly prefer to feed at night. Boats are allowed to leave the docks immediately after the Captain’s Meeting on June 12, 2015 and must be back in the Manasquan Inlet by 6 p.m. in order to weigh sharks.

The tournament will be held on the Manasquan River, with weigh-ins taking place at Crystal Point Yacht Club. Scales will be open at 12 noon on June 13, 2015. The After Party Fund Raiser Dinner, that evening, will provide an opportunity to meet the Navy SEALs and Operation Restored Warrior leadership. There will be a silent auction and a live auction with commemorative items and an array of goods and services donated by local businesses and tournament sponsors. Special guests at the fund raising dinner will be Congressman and ex-Navy SEAL, Ryan Zinke and National Geographic Channel’s Wicked Tuna television show’s Captain Paul Herbert. A limited number of tickets will be available for the after party fund raising dinner for $50 per person.
