Reserve your spot now for June 22 ABNB fishing fest

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Reserve your spot now to help reel in money for CHKD during ABNB’s 9th annual deep-sea fishing fest on June 22, a half-day charter-boat trip that leaves from Virginia Beach in the morning and return to shore for catered lunch at noon.

With two charter boats and close to 200 anglers, ABNB has netted large sums, a total of $211,000 over the last eight years.

A CHKD patient and family will be onboard as will radio personalities from sponsoring stations: 104.5 Z104, 94.9 The Point, 95.7 R&B FM, and 101.3 2WD.

All tackle, bait, fish bags, and fishing licenses are provided, but feel free to bring your own. Anglers will be served continental breakfast aboard the vessel and will return to the pier for a shore-side catered lunch donated by Mobile Pig-Nic Catering.

On June 22, check in of reserved guests starts at 7 a.m. at the Virginia Beach Fishing Center at the corner of 5th and Pacific and the boats leave the dock at 8 a.m.

If you register by June 21 at 2 p.m., the price is $65 per person, $120 for two (plus $50 for each additional person) and $50 for children. If there is space available, you can register the day of the event for $70 per person. To make sure you get on, though, it’s best to make your reservations as soon as possible.
