LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- The 14th annual Calusa Blueway Kyak Fishing Tournament kicked off Saturday morning.

All proceeds go to the Candlelighters of SWFL, an organization that provides support, education and assistance to families of children with cancer and blood disorders.

The family fun event featured door prizes, raffles, food, live music, silent auctions, and activities for kids from noon - 4 pm.

"We are proud of our long-standing partnerships to support charity events throughout Lee County. This is a great event, which continues to grow in popularity year after year. Gulf Coast Kayak is dedicated to doing good things in their community and promoting the Great Calusa Blueway and we're happy to be a part of it," said Mike Hammond, Lee County Parks & Recreation's Calusa Blueway Coordinator.
