We did it. Thank you for your support of the United Way of Central Maryland. Your generosity helped us raise a total of $117,496 for underprivileged Central Maryland residents.
Attracting 52 boats, 220 anglers and more than 500 total participants, the 6th Annual Fish for a Cure Tournament proved to be the most successful event to date, raising $220,000 to support cancer programs at AAMC. Cyrus Lashgari, MD, of Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, took first place catching a 37-inch rockfish. Dr. Lashgari was part of a crew of physicians who chartered a boat for the fishing and caught half dozen stripers. Several teams of physicians raised thousands on behalf of Fish for
the Cure, with Team DESPA coming in third place with $15,000.
