Welcome to the Make-A-Wish Tuna Challenge, an annual tuna tournament and fundraiser in San Diego with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego, Inc.
We are getting closer to our 2016 event and if you would like to fish, join our committee to help out, make a donation, or just come to our awards banquet to enjoy the day and participate in a fantastic event then now is the time to make your plans. It is all happening at the end of August and we need everyone's help to make this a great year for our event and Make-A-Wish San Diego. Come and enjoy the fun with friends and family. Take part in our live auction, raffles, and more all while helping grant wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions.
Attention all anglers! Our 2016 Early Bird registration deadline is fast approaching. All registrations postmarked, or purchased online, on or before Friday, July 29th, will be eligible for our early bird prize of $1000 in raffle tickets. After that date the entry fees go up and you are no longer eligible for the prize so get your registrations in today!
