The eighth annual Kids’ Crabbing Tourney, presented by Salt Cured, will be held at Ft. McAllister Marina on Oct. 14.

Last year’s event drew approximately 80 children competing for the heaviest catch. Individuals or teams may weigh-in their 10 largest crabs. Proceeds will be donated to Family Promise of Bryan County on behalf of the winner. Additional prizes will be awarded to winners and all participants will receive a medal. Drawings will be held for additional prizes.

There will be music, hermit crab races, snow cones, giveaways and more. A traditional crab boil will follow.

Family Promise of Bryan County is a collaborative partnership of congregations within our community helping families with children in our schools who are facing homelessness. It helps homeless families regain their housing, independence and dignity. Currently approximately 168 homeless school-age children have been identified in our county.

Last year’s tournament raised $5,000 for the group.

Registration will be from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. with weigh-in at 4 p.m. Cost is $10 per child or $50 per boat with unlimited children on a team.

The presenting sponsor is Salt Cured. Additional sponsors include: Anderson Jewelers, South State Bank, Royal Marine, Gerrald’s Heating & Air, Fish Tales Restaurant, Sea Island Bank, Richmond Hill Animal Hospital, MacAljon, ProLectric, Ft. McAllister Sport Fishing Club, Shoreline Landscape and Brannen Construction.
