The First Annual Fish For Holly Sailfish Tournament was held at the Islander Resort on January 5th and 6th, 2019. In its inaugural year, 56 boats and 207 anglers of men, women and children fished the beautiful waters of Islamorada in the Florida Keys.

The memorial tournament was established to honor Holly Given’s life, which was cut short due to a tragic case of domestic violence. The Holly Given Fund, 501c(3) was established thereafter, and one year later, put on their first sail fishing tournament. The even gathered her loved ones from near and far, have a fun weekend of fishing, celebrating life, and spending time with friends.

It was an incredible event with close to 400 people in attendance both Friday night and Saturday night at the Islander’s Florida Keys History & Discovery Center. It was the largest tournament turnout Islamorada has ever seen, and in its first year to boot.
