THE KEYMORADA INVITATIONAL FISHING TOURNAMENT to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America was held at the Cheeca Lodge Resort & Spa in Islamorada. To date, the fundraiser has secured roughly 200 sponsors and raised more than $470,000. Since its inception nine years ago, the Keymorada Tournament has raised more than $3.5 million for the organization. Proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to the CCFA, as well as the University of Miami’s Elaine & Sydney Sussman Crohn’s and Colitis Clinic. The tournament was founded by Bilzin Sumberg partner Mitchell Widom, along with his wife Alicia and brother Glenn, following his daughter’s Crohn’s disease diagnosis. According to Mitchell, what has made this tournament so unique in its success has been the generous outpouring it receives yearly from the legal community. Each year approximately 200-300 firms from across the country participate in the tournament. Pictured are co-chairs Alicia Widom, Mitchell Widom, Ellen Shapiro, and Glenn Widom.
