What They Said About 2016...
"In just two short years the Anglers for the Cure KDW fishing tournament has gone from 33 boats in 2015 (it’s inaugural year) to over 67 boats in 2016. What is even more impressive than this 100% increase year over year is the fact it’s founder/director Adriana Somberg took this challenge with absolutely no previous tournament organizing experience. Thanks to her dedication and hard work she has raise both awareness and tens of thousands of dollars for this worthy and often overlooked cause . On behalf of men everywhere thank you Adriana!!!"

"The 2016 2nd annual "Anglers for the Cure" tournament was an incredible event. It had all of the major attributes that you would typically see at well established tournaments. For starters, it was an incredible success for the sponsors who participated. She did an amazing job of promoting them from the bottom to the top. I felt as if I was actually a title sponsor....And I wasn't. It was the personal touch that meant so much to me and my company at Red Eye Trolling Lures. My efforts will continue to grow in showing support for this remarkable cause and to have had the opportunity to work with one of the "Best" event coordinators in the business makes this such a great community to be a part of. Adriana has outdone herself with a degree of professionalism like no other. It was one of the better Captain Meetings I have ever attended.
Adriana! As part of Team Red Eye, I will definitely be back to support your cause and defend our title."
With much love and respect,

"Earlier this summer I had the pleasure to participate in the 2nd Annual Anglers for The Cure fishing tournament. I met Adriana last year a few months before the first tournament. I knew right away this girl had all the passion and desire to do whatever she set her mind to. I have run many tournaments in the past and always considered ours to be the best around. Having grown up in Pam Beach County and fishing here all my life, I’d like to think I know what people are looking for in a tournament setting. I’m a member of a local firefighter organization and I approached our membership about becoming a sponsor for that first event. Many firefighters are affected by cancer every year due to the exposures in our job. Unfortunately, prostate cancer is on that list. Our membership agreed to the sponsorship and after last year’s event we were looking forward to this year. Everything was top notch. The venue, the sponsors, the prizes, the buckets, the raffles, the giveaways, food
beverage, you name it. My biggest surprise was that somehow Adriana made it even better this year. Not only was this an awesome tournament it was fun, and the dedication that she has put forward to helping raise
awareness, prevent and maybe one day find that cure for prostate cancer is simply amazing. If you haven’t had the pleasure, you should attend next year’s event. I’ll be there!!!"
Thank You Adriana,
When Adriana first approached my wife and I and explained she was doing a tournament to get the word out about prostate cancer and the need for early testing, we knew we wanted to participate. This is a great tournament for an even greater cause.
We are proud to say that our Jr. Angler, Justin Kung, won in 2015 and 2016

"Reel Anarchy fished the Anglers for the Cure Tournament this year. This was the first time for us. Adriana did a great job getting everything prepared. The facility the tournament was held at was by far, one of the nicest we have been to. You could tell that there was a lot of planning and preparation done because everything ran smoothly. There were a lot of great raffle/silent auction items to bid on to help raise money for her charity. Without the donations from all her sponsors this tournament would not be the success it was."

I met Adriana at a event last spring, heard her story about her husband's battle with prostate cancer and said to myself that we (Gill Media Inc.) had to be a part . We spoke briefly about what I could provide and the rest is history.
Adriana is the most outgoing enthusiastic tournament director I have ever worked with. She wants her event to be the best and her story to be heard!! What she has accomplished in a short 2 year span is remarkable. This year's Anglers For The Cure event was perfect , from the beautiful venue at Rybovich Superyacht Marina to the captains' meeting party and the awards dinner Saturday afternoon. All the sponsors should be proud of the work Adriana and her staff of volunteers have done
I was glad not only donate to the event, but was able to work the weigh in with my good friends Andy & Mary Flack. The weather was perfect for both days and we were lucky to see some hefty fish brought to the scales on Saturday. Everyone I spoke to had a amazing weekend, even my son Chase won the Junior Angler title.
The event doubled its entries from 33 boats in 2015 to 67 in 2016. The event raised thousands for a cause that all men should be aware of, Prostate Cancer (PSA Screening).
Adriana's message is getting out. If detected early enough, it can be treated and save your life.
I didn’t have the test last year but just scheduled my appointment for later this month.
Thanks Adriana for what you do for all MANKIND!!!!
