Shovel up a reef

The group needs 80 volunteers to shovel fossilized oyster shells into mesh bags to create a bar off the shoreline Thursday and Friday. To volunteer, call Rachel Arndt at (727) 867-8166, ext. 233, or go to tampabaywatch.org.

Fishing

Some fish, some prefer pampering

The Hooked on Hope annual Inshore Fishing Tournament on Oct. 12-13 will benefit the USF Breast Health Program. While anglers are out fishing, the event also hosts a "Pamper Party," where breast cancer fighters and survivors are treated to a day of hair styling, manicures, pedicures, massages, yoga, makeup and facials. Individuals can sponsor a breast cancer patient or survivor for the party for a $100 donation. Go to hookedonhope.org.

Clarification: The Scholastic Clay Target Program Olympic Style National Championships was abbreviated in an item last week.
