Darn Irma — save this date for the Pine Island Elementary Fishing Tournament & Derby!

To the editor

Each year the Matlacha Hookers are proud to host the Pine Island Elementary Fishing Tournament & Derby. Due to damage from Hurricane Irma and the fact that everyone in Southwest Florida was affected in some way, the 2017 derby has been rescheduled for Sunday, Nov. 5, at the Olde Fish House in Matlacha.

This is typically the first family friendly event of the fall on the island and will provide much needed educational tools for the children and teachers of P.I.E. P.I.E. continues to be a Grade A school in Lee County with the support of our community.

At this time, we extend a very sincere thank you to all of the businesses, organizations and individuals that have already supported and donated to the Matlacha Hookers to make this event a success.

If you would like to help us, please consider sponsoring a child with a $30 donation, fishing in the adult tournament, donating an item for the various auctions or purchasing an event shirt. Shirts can be found at Four Winds Marina, the Grab Bag and P.I.E in Bokeelia, St James General Store in SJC or Traders Hitching Post and Pine Bay Gallery in Matlacha.

For more information, visit our websites at or, or call 239-910-3829 and leave a message.

As always, we cannot continue to Make a Positive Difference in Our Community without your support!

Hookers rule!
