During the tournament, festivities will be held at the local Dick's Sporting Goods, where the Irishwaterdogs Invitational trophy is kept on display. Many vendors will be on hand including live music, clinics, food, and more. It's also a great opportunity to stock up on raffle tickets (already on sale at the site) to win some awesome prizes while helping out the Cleft Palate Center of Jacksonville. Prizes include a Costa Rica vacation, kayaks from Hobie, Wilderness Systems, and Emotion, PFDs, gift cards, tackle, and more.
The Cleft Palette Center is run by local doctors, nurses, and other volunteer staff that donate all their time and services free of charge to reconstruct children in the Jacksonville community. They provide surgery, speech therapy, classes and ear nose and throat specialists, all at their own cost. This is an amazing non-profit organization doing some great work throughout the community.
Registration and raffle ticket purchases are now open at the Irishwaterdogs Invitational website http://www.irishwaterdogsinvitational.com/.
