LaPlata, MD - April 14, 2017 - Veterans, volunteers, and celebrities from across the country will gather at Rose River Farm in Syria, Virginia on April 29 - 30, 2017 for the 11th Annual 2-Fly Tournament benefiting Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) and the thousands of disabled veterans the organization serves each year. Now entering its second decade as the flagship fundraiser for PHWFF, the 2-Fly Tournament has provided vital support for this top-tier Veterans Service Organization and served to raise awareness for its remarkable contributions towards the recovery and rehabilitation of those who have made great sacrifices in the service of our nation. The pre-tournament dinner starts at 5pm on Saturday night April 29th under the stars in picturesque Madison County, Virginia.
For a little more than a decade Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) has focused on healing those who serve. It is through the tremendous contributions of our volunteers and supporters nationwide that last year PHWFF served over 7,500 deserving members of our armed services.
Current veteran participants in the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Program, and alumni, will also be on hand throughout the weekend to discuss the challenges facing today's service members, both physical and emotional, and the impact PHWFF has had on their recovery and transition.
The tournament competition kicks off at 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning April 30th and features PHWFF participants from across the nation. Military/veteran participants will be partnered with a professional fly fishing guide from among the most notable names in the sport.
