It’s that time of year when Mystic Wellington Yacht Club will once again be partnering with the Mass Bass Fishing Federation and the My Little Buddy’s Boat Autism Awareness Charity to host the 9th Annual Fishin with a Mission Autism Awareness Day at MWYC.
We are extremely excited that we can host this great family event in person once again! We remain committed to continue to help and aid the great schools like the New England Center for Children, The Nashoba Learning Group and the Boston Higashi School who had truly felt the impact of the recent Covid 19 pandemic.
On Sunday, July 25th, we will be inviting hundreds of children afflicted with autism and their families to our facility to enjoy a great day of summer activities such fishing, boat rides, water slide, barbecue and many other summer activities that many of these children and their families have never had an opportunity to experience!
To also help this great cause we will be hosting 2 great fishing tournaments over a 2 day period to help raise money for the great schools I have previously mentioned. On Saturday, July 24th, we will be hosting a “Virtual Salt Water Striped Bass Fishing Tournament”. This event is designed to have some of the great anglers in and around New England compete to determine who will be this year’s Salt Water Striped Bass Fishing Champion with all the proceeds of the tournament being donated to “My Little Buddy’s Boat.” A 501(c)3 Autism Awareness Charity.
On Sunday, July 25th, as part of the Children’s Autism Awareness Day, a Fresh Water Bass Tournament will be held! This is when some of the areas great Fresh Water anglers compete and show off their great skills. Attendees of the Family Day will have the opportunity to watch the great fish weigh in and see who will reign the title of this year’s Fresh Water Bass Tournament Champion! Again, with all proceeds going to the “My Little Buddy’s Boat Autism Awareness Charity”
