The Billfish Foundation’s 2020 Virtual Gala

Despite COVID-19 and resulting challenges for The Billfish Foundation (TBF), board members and staff invite you to join and support our 2020 VIRTUAL Gala, guaranteed to be casual as you view, bid and donate from the comfort of your home! Think of the money you will have saved by not attending in person, which you can now spend on Silent Auction items or give a tax-deductible donation to help TBF during these unprecedented times. We hope you understand our dilemma and will help. Next year we will party hard at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort, but first we must survive 2020!
