History of the Greater Atlantic Cancer Fund and Bluefish Tournament
John Dunn and Billy Morrison started the Greater Atlantic Bluefish Tournament in 1988 to raise money for cancer. Thoughout the years the G.A.B.T. has increased its participants, popularity throughout the community, and most importantly, their donation to the fight against cancer.
In October 2002 the Greater Atlantic Bluefish Tournament formed the GABT Foundation, Inc. to help give cancer patients in southern New Jersey a better quality of life. The Foundation will allow proceeds of the tournament to make more impact in our community.
Now, in 2014, the GABT has been renamed to the Greater Atlantic Cancer Fund to provide more widespread assistance to our neighbors in need!
The Bluefish Tournament remains as our major annual event. All other events throughout the year will now come under the name Greater Atlantic Cancer Fund!
Same great people, same great organization – new name!!
