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.
Our early bird deadline is fast approaching. Signing up early not only gets you a lower entry fee but enters you in our early bird drawing to receive $1,000 worth of our Tuna Challenge progressive raffle tickets. Each captain will receive 1 ticket for each angler on his or her team that is signed up before the deadline. Hurry and sign up to reserve your spot in this drawing.
We are getting closer to our 2015 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, silent auctions, raffles, and more all while helping grant wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions.
Please take note of our major sponsors at the bottom of this page and on our Sponsorship page and be sure to thank them for their generosity.
