Poor Girls Open
Aug. 15-17, Bahia Marina, 22nd Street & Bay, Ocean City, Md.
The Poor Girls Open is a ladies-only billfish release tournament benefiting breast cancer research. There are also added entry levels for tuna and dolphin. This tournament was started by Capt. Steve Harman as a way for local waitresses and bartenders to have an affordable and fun competition while raising money for a cause. The tournament continues to grow, with more than 100 boats entering. Participation is not limited only to anglers, as there are silent auctions, 50/50 tickets, T-shirts for sale and other events helping to raise money for breast cancer research. In the past three years, the Poor Girls Open has raised more than $100,000 that was donated to the American Cancer Society. More information is online at https://www.bahiamarina.com/.
