Catch and release tournament to help PHCC Foundation

It's hook, line and sinker for the Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation Inc.

Skanska USA is sponsoring the second annual Catch and Release Fishing Tournament to benefit PHCC.

The Captain's Party and Silent Auction, sponsored by Hampton Inn & Suites of Wesley Chapel, will be at 6 p.m. April 10 at Heritage Springs Golf & Country Club, 11345 Robert Trent Jones Parkway, Trinity.

The fishing tournament is at 8 a.m. April 11 at Hooters, 5336 Treadway Drive in Port Richey.

"It will be a great opportunity to spend a day on the water and help support our community college," Monica Mills, vice chairwoman of the PHCC Foundation board of directors, said in a statement.

The PHCC Foundation was established in 1975 to seek private support to enhance the college's academic programs, according to its Web site, and has become a leading community college foundation with assets of more than $26-million.

Opportunities are available for sponsorships and angler teams. All angler teams include a boat, professional guide, breakfast, boxed lunch and beverages, bait and tackle, official tournament T-shirts, goodie bags and tickets to the Captain's Party. No experience is necessary and the event is all-inclusive.

Tournament species categories are snook, trout and redfish. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place for combined total inches.

A prize will also be awarded for biggest single fish in each category. A master angler award will be given for biggest cobia.

To purchase tickets for the Captain's Party, register an angler team or partner as a sponsor, visit www.phcc.edu/gofish.

For information, contact Lynn Rothman at (727) 816-3448 or rothmal@phcc.edu, or Arla Altman at (727) 816-3410 or altmana@phcc.edu.

Table tennis: The Land O'Lakes Table Tennis Club meets from 3 to 6 p.m. every Wednesday and from 6 to 9 p.m. every Friday at the Land O'Lakes Community Center, 5401 Land O'Lakes Blvd.

There are 60 members already and the club is open to all ages and skill levels.

The club is looking to move to the Collier Parkway Recreation Center because there is more room and better lighting but has been unable to acquire the same time slots as at the Land O'Lakes Community Center.

The club is also raising money to purchase better equipment and more tables.

For information about joining or donating a table, call Don Goff at (813) 929-8055 or e-mail loltabletennis@gmail.com.

Running: Genesis Health & Fitness is taking registrations for the first 5K/10K Charity Run-Walk for Jericho Road Ministries: Mary's House on April 12.

The event will begin at 8 a.m. at the entrance to River Country on U.S. 19. The entry fee is $25. The money raised will benefit Jericho Road Ministries, which established and operates Mary's House as a shelter for homeless women.

Participants are asked to recruit sponsors to pledge money to be donated in their name. Refreshments and awards will be given at Genesis Health & Fitness immediately after the event. For information or to register, call (352) 597-9383.
