The 14th annual Palm Beach County KDW Classic, one of Florida’s largest KDW style fishing tournaments, returns to the Riviera Beach Marina June 3rd & 4th. The popular event, co-hosted by the West Palm Beach Fishing Club and the City of Riviera Beach, routinely attracts over 200 boats. The Classic is a very family & friends oriented event offering a wide range of prizes, including 10 guaranteed cash awards in each category: Kingfish, Dolphin, Wahoo and Juniors.
The KDW Classic’s great value to anglers and an ongoing commitment to to the local community are why the tournament has developed such a loyal following. Proceeds have been used to create new artificial reefs, install reef saving mooring buoys, support the City of Riviera Beach scholarship fund and aid the annual Kid’s Fishing Days program produced by the Fishing Club’s charitable affiliate, the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation.
The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County has been the KDW Classic’s presenting sponsor since the beginning. Numerous other sponsors participate in the event by underwriting the cash awards, providing raffle items and other giveaways. This year $34,000 in guaranteed cash prizes and $30,000 in raffle items are up for grabs. For additional tournament information or to register online visit www.kdwclassic.com
