THE POOR GIRLS OPEN IS A LADIES ONLY BILLFISH RELEASE TOURNAMENT BENEFITING BREAST CANCER RESEARCH.
This tournament was started by Capt. Steve Harman as a way for local waitresses and bartenders to have an affordable and fun competition while raising money for a very important cause. The tournament continues to grow with over 100 boats entering. Participation is not limited only to anglers as there are Chinese auctions, 50/50 tickets, tournament merchandise for sale, and other fun events helping to raise money for breast cancer research. The Poor Girls Open has donated over $1.7 million to the American Cancer Society.
