The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office Sheriff’s Explorers are sponsoring their 15th Annual Fishing tournament Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, said Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
"This is a chance for people to enjoy a day on the water competing for $80,000 in cash and prizes and to benefit the excellent work of Sheriff’s Explorer Post 400," Sheriff Mascara said.
The fishing tournament at the Fort Pierce City Marina is one of a series of year-round fund-raisers to underwrite the Explorer post sponsored by the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office. Proceeds from the fund-raisers make it possible for Explorers to travel to a variety of events throughout the state.
