Stringers for Scholarships 2019

June 2019

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Del Mar College and LNV partnered up for the 6th Annual Stringers for Scholarships fishing tournament located at Marker 37 Marina in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Stringers for Scholarships is an annual tournament hosted by the Del Mar College Foundation and LNV to raise scholarship funds for local students.

Overall, the 2019 tournament was a huge success. Over 230 anglers spent the day on the water for a good cause. The Foundation’s annual tournament presented by LNV raised over $69,000 in student scholarships. There were also over 22 sponsors who helped make this year’s tournament such a success. Multiple local businesses donated food, drinks, coolers, raffle and door prizes and their time to raising money for student scholarships.

Participants enjoyed a Captain’s Meeting the night before the tournament catered by Saltwater Grill and a BBQ lunch the day of the tournament from ONYX Engineering’s fabulous competitive cooking team. Local musician, John Eric, played some Texas Country music while anglers weighed in their biggest catches.

The LNV Team and Del Mar College are extremely grateful for the opportunity to invest in our local students. Funds raised at this tournament go directly to Del Mar College students to assist in furthering their education. We are appreciative of our new sponsors and sponsors who have been assisting in the success of this tournament for the last six years.
