Flounder Pounder Tournament
The annual Flounder Pounder charity fishing tournament began in 2010, spearheaded by parents Chip and Teresa Davis. When their son Tyler was diagnosed with Autism, they wanted to create an event that gave back to the cause.
Tyler attended Jacksonville School for Autism (JSA), where parent fundraising is highly encouraged. Chip, being the avid fisherman that he is, immediately thought of hosting a fishing tournament to raise money for the school. From the very beginning, the Davis family devoted countless hours of time and energy to raising Autism Awareness, while creating a grassroots effort among family and friends to create this annual charity event!
To date, Flounder Pounder has raised about $190,000 in the past 7 years and is voted Best Tournament in the 904. Every single penny of these proceeds has directly benefited the students and families at JSA. Both the Davis family and the staff at JSA are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this event, and are excited to see much more continued success in the years to come!
Thank you for making this year’s tournament the best one yet!
