Hooked on a Cure
Who We Are
Here at Hooked on a Cure, INC, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Whether it is funding a cure, participating in a walk, or raising our paddle at the gala, Hooked on a Cure strives to give back to the community.
Hooked on a Cure was created by Matt White, a leading member of the Tampa Bay community. Founded in 2015, Hooked on a Cure raises and donates 100% of the proceeds from the fishing tournament to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. JDRF is very near and dear to Matt's heart because his wife had Type 1. It is our hope through educating the community about Type 1 Diabetes and raising funds to support the ongoing research and treatments, that we can turn Type 1 into Type NONE.
Helping The Community and Having Fun
There are multiple ways to be a part of this great event. Options include getting your company involved and being a Corporate Sponsor, getting your family and friends together for the individual sponsorship, or just making a straight donation to our cause. All sponsorship opportunities can be purchased by clicking HERE.
Before our fishing tournament we host a Captains' Party. On this night you get to meet your fishing captain and bid on great prizes. All of the items in the auction have been donated by generous people like you! We are looking for items such as exclusive trips, sports memorabilia, restaurant/store gift cards, fishing gear, nice wines, gift baskets, and other high end items. If you would like to donate items, please contact Lindsey Suarez.
