MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports hosts Fishing with Buddies event
Mississippi Gulf Coast Buddy Sports set sail on their annual fishing trip!
Fishing with Buddies provides recreational sports and leisure opportunities for youth and adults with special needs.
Today’s charter boat fishing day was sponsored by Shaggy’s Restaurant and Shaggy’s Harbor Docks in Pass Christian where the fishing captains and passengers took off.
Buddies enjoyed the Mississippi Sound for two hours, hoping the fish would bite.
Over 40 participants signed up, making this the largest Fishing with Buddies event so far. MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports Board Member Stella Wolf said, “We have so many children and young adults with special needs who can’t participate in traditional sports or any type of events. So, our MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports has multiple events throughout the year. This being one, Fishing with Buddies, that we just open the doors to anybody in the community who can join us.”
Boat captains, sponsors, and volunteers make this event possible each year.
