BEACH HAVEN, NJ - The Seashell Resort & Beach Club is currently preparing for their 20th Annual Striped Bass Fishing Derby that will be taking place at the end of the month. Each year the event proceeds benefit charities.  

Last year's event brought in 76 registered boats and about 300 anglers. Not only were some really big striper's weighed in, but they raised $19,000.00 in funds that were split between David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation and the Marine Mammal Stranding Center. 

With the fall weather and less visitors, the Seashell's goals for this event are "to provide yet another reason for people to frequent our island during the fall season, to provide a venue for boat fishermen, and most importantly, to provide funds for worthwhile local non-profit organizations and noteworthy community projects," said the Derby announcement.

In the past 19 years the Derby has generated nearly $300,000.00 for local non-profits. 

The Seashell has announced that their 20th Annual Striped Bass Fishing Derby will take place October 28, 29, and 30.

This year's derby will benefit David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation. David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises funds to provide financial assistance, services and HOPE to families, affected by a cancer diagnosis. 

"I know what you are thinking, 'didn’t we donate half of last year’s money to David’s Dream and Believe', you bet we did, and we are proud of it," Tom Hughes, the Derby Coordinator said. "We are so impressed with the work that these great people are doing right here in our community, that we feel compelled to reach out and help them again this year. I guarantee that someone you know has been helped by this wonderful organization. This is a fabulous cause, one that each and every one of us should be proud to support. I know that I am."
