Big Hope 1 Tops $1 Million Raised For Cancer Research

The 2018 Annual Marine Industry Charity Tournament August 16–18 raised more than $160,000 for cancer research. The tournament, featuring golf, softball and kickball tournaments, a 5K  and 1 mile fun run/walk and seafood boil, was organized by Ceres Consulting LLC, and benefited the Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center. The tournament, along with Ceres Consulting’s pink barge Big Hope 1, has raised more than $1 million for cancer research since Big Hope 1 was launched in 2012.
