Minister for Grand Bahama, Dr. Michael Darville, pledged his Ministry’s support for the upcoming 3rd Annual Grand Bahama Shipyard Fishing Tournament scheduled for April 6, 2013, at the Grand Bahama Yacht Club.
In announcing his Ministry’s support of the tourney, Dr. Darville said he was pleased to participate in any event whose primary function is to assist the young people of our nation. He took note of the fact that proceeds from the event will benefit the Bartlett Hill Primary School, Martin Town Primary School and Holmes Rock Primary.
During last year’s event, some $40,000.00 were raised which benefited schools in east Grand Bahama. Organizers say participation in the 2013 event has already exceeded 2012 figures and forecasted that some $60,000.00 will be raised for schools in west Grand Bahama.
