ACK was invited to sponsor the Irish Water Dogs Invitational in Jacksonville, FL back in October, a catch, photo and release, kayak-fishing tournament and we gladly accepted. Aside from supporting the sport of kayak fishing, what drew us to this particular tournament was that all proceeds were going to the Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Bill Sikora, tournament director and member of the Irish Water Dogs Fishing Team, was kind enough to share the results with us. “It was because of the generosity of people like you that the tournament was a terrific success. Everyone had a terrific time and over $1,000 was raised for the children’s hospital. I wanted to personally thank you again for all of your support and wish you and everyone at Austin Canoe and Kayak a safe and happy holiday’s. Thanks again!”

Thanks Bill, it was an honor and congratulations to all the winners!
