(Dec. 21, 2023) – A great day of fishing and generous donations resulted in the local organization of Mothers Against Drunk Driving raising approximately $20,000 during the recent Fish Like MADD indoor fishing tourney in Lee County waters. The title sponsor was Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan, PLLC.
Donations will continue to be accepted through the end of the month. This year’s total increased the overall amount raised over three years to about $50,000.
“While working with MADD as a prosecutor, I had the utmost privilege of watching their heartfelt efforts in advocating and supporting victims and their families through some of the hardest times of their lives,” said Stephen Dommerich, a partner with Aloia Roland. “Now as a civil practitioner, I admire the awareness they bring to the community in hopes of preventing these senseless tragedies. MADD is an admirable organization that ARLM is honored to support.”
Placing first among the 17 teams and 50 participants was Team Dargel with the highest catch and release total among the approved fish of Snook, Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout. Team Pathfinder finished second and Team Black Dog Third.
“We are extremely grateful for the continued support of the Southwest Florida community as we bring awareness to impaired driving and how BUIs are, unfortunately, prevalent here in Florida,” said Jennifer Walsh, Affiliate Executive Director for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Florida State Office. “The dollars raised here go back directly to serving victims of impaired driving crashes and prevention education in Southwest Florida.”
