Sports enthusiasts and outdoorsmen will enjoy the return of the BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company Surf & Turf Experience Oct. 17-19, 2014 at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, Florida.
Proceeds from the event will help support the mission of Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers Inc. to educate, train and create meaningful employment opportunities within the insurance industry for disabled veterans.
The second annual event is a three-day, two-night sportsman’s weekend consisting of individual competitors on teams of three. The competition includes fishing and golfing components. Teams will fish with a licensed charter captain from South Seas Island Resort marina and explore the back waters of Southwest Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. After fishing, guests will proceed to South Seas Island Resort to compete in the second element of the competition; the same teams will play eighteen holes of golf overlooking Redfish Pass.
The $1,500 entry fee provides each participant with two-night accommodations at South Seas Island Resort, including the Friday cocktail party, gourmet dinner and casino night; Saturday breakfast, fishing, lunch, golf, cocktail reception, dinner, auction and awards; and Sunday breakfast. In addition, every player will receive custom, limited edition apparel and a special commemorative gift.
