3rd Annual
Charity Shark Tournament

About the Tournament

The Warriors for Warriors Charity Shark Tournament is an annual fund raiser that features former US Navy SEALs and local fishermen raising money for charities that support combat warrior veterans. Each year, the Tournament will announce a specific charity to support. In 2016, we will again, support Operation Restored Warrior, a combat veteran operated 501c3 focused on healing our warriors and preventing veteran suicides. 22 veterans take their lives each day and we can help prevent this from happening. At ORW, 96.4 percent of all funds donated go directly to helping Veterans.
