Who we are...

Mid-Coast Smackdown was started in 2018 by two friends who love to fish and wanted to find a way to help children. They knew a young girl who was battling Leukemia and raising funds for St. Baldrick's Foundation to help fund research. What a better way to support a young girl's battle than bringing friends together to fish and raise money along the way. Who can say no to a weekend of fishing when it benefits a worthy cause?

The first fishing tournament was held in May 2018. From our humble beginnings of a tournament with 8 teams, we have come a long way. Our tournament in 2019 had 34 teams entered, along with a live and silent auction, and raffles.

In 2019, we expanded our efforts and had the fishing tournament, bracelet sales, and participated in other organization's fundraising efforts by donating raffle items, auction items, food, and man power. 

2020 is looking up, with discussions underway for additional fundraisers, support, and finding ways to support families as we can and as the need arises.
