About Bluewater Babes

Bluewater Babes Charitable Trust is a nonprofit public charity committed to providing financial assistance to local breast and ovarian cancer patients in financial need! Medical bills often leave patients strapped to pay for the basic essentials: car payments, electric and water bills, or even rent. Worry abounds during treatment and these bills shouldn’t add to that.

Born out of a love for fishing, the courage to fight and an understanding of the powerful nature of women working together, Bluewater Babes Fish for a Cure is Palm Beach County’s first all-female fishing tournament.

Since its founding in 2009, more than 1,000 boats and 4,000 female anglers have joined together to celebrate loved ones, often themselves, who have bravely fought and won the battle against these diseases and to remember and honor those whom they have lost.

Bluewater Babes has grown steadily year after year and in 2013 tournament organizers decided to convert the event into a much greater entity – its own non-profit organization – Bluewater Babes.

Bluewater Babes proudly supports and has donated over $465,000 to long-standing local charities Cancer Alliance for Help and Hope, Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper–(H.O.W.) and the Kristin Hoke Breast Health Program at Jupiter Medical Center. As its own 501(c)3, Bluewater Babes Charitable Trust provides direct support to those in need through its “Out of the Blue” financial assistance fund. Proceeds from both the annual Fish for a Cure events and ongoing fundraising efforts increase and extend Bluewater Babes’ reach to provide help for those in need in our own community.
