WILDWOOD -- Cape Assist has canceled its 2020 Hope One Striper Surf Fishing Tournament because of ongoing restrictions related to COVID-19.
The event that was scheduled for May 16 was to be the first fishing fundraiser for the organization, with proceeds benefiting its much-needed programs and services addressing substance abuse and treatment.
“Prioritizing people’s health and safety is what we do,” stated Executive Director Katie Faldetta. “We’re disappointed, but we know it’s for the best. Once things settle, we’ll revisit the idea and decide how to proceed from there.”
Any sponsorships, entry fees, and donations will be refunded, and any donated silent auction items will be returned.
While there is no firm date to reschedule the tournament, spring 2021 is being considered.
