Bricks & Sticks Fishing Tournament raises over $16,000 for Lee BIA Builders Care

The 13th annual Bricks & Sticks Fishing Tournament, hosted by the Lee Building Industry Association, raised more than $16,000 for Lee BIA Builders Care.

Held in September at the South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, the fishing tournament featured a live auction to raise funds for Lee BIA Builders Care. The donations will support the nonprofit’s efforts to provide emergency home repairs and construction services to elderly and/or disabled homeowners and families in Lee County. To date, Builders Care has provided over $4.75 million in construction services to more than 450 individuals and families, facilitating critical repairs that allow local families to live safely and comfortably in their own homes.

Presented by Builders Insurance Group and Five County Insurance, the tournament saw 209 anglers on 61 boats competing for cash prizes. This year’s tournament awarded first place to Josh Constantine, Andrew Wiles and Michelle Wiles (total inches: 191.50), second place to Shane Earhart, Mark Wiles, Darin McMurray and Jeff Palmer (total inches: 183), and third place to Ozzie Lessinger, Heriberto Alicea and Jose Medero (total inches: 174).
