Boomer Esiason Foundation partners with Redbone for charity tournament

Sport Fishing - USA - The Boomer Esiason Foundation will partner with the Redbone for the sixth annual F.C.A. Montauk Slam, a national celebrity fishing event to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis, at the Montauk Yacht Club Resort and Marina, Sept. 19 – 21.

A field of 80-plus anglers and celebrities are expected to use fly and light tackle for a "Nor' East Grand Slam" of striped bass, bluefish and false albacore. All fish caught are photographed, measured and immediately returned to the water. The teams are guided by 40 experienced and local captains.

Besides its extensive work with raising monies for cystic fibrosis research and education, the BEF has recently created a scholarship fund to assist cystic fibrosis patients pursuing college degrees. Proceeds from the tournament will be presented by the Redbone to BEF for the scholarship program.

"As research and therapeutic developments have increased the lifespan of cystic fibrosis patients over the past two decades, the need for a scholarship program for these students has emerged," said Esiason who is best known for his years as a top quarterback in the NFL and is now a TV and radio sports broadcaster.

"Having grown up here on Long Island I'm delighted to see the Foundation initiate and develop this scholarship program as well as take an active role in the Redbone tournaments created in the Florida Keys 20 years ago by Capt. Gary and Susan Ellis, who are also parents of a CF child. Their events have raise millions of dollars for CF research and awareness through nearly 30 annual celebrity fishing events."
