WOW a year has past so fast, Last August 29th My mother-in-laws birthday.My brother-in-laws was painting his rental apartment when something terrible happened. Robert is a single Dad raising his son the best he can on Long Island. Just making it and finally able to buy a house for him and his son. He was so Proud of what he was able to accomplish. Well that night in August he was painting and his son was watching TV Robert Fell down the stairs and passed away 14 days later. Robert was only 47 and his son is 12 years old. Now a year later and we have seen his son very little after seeing them every weekend. His son now lives with his Mom.

So this is where I look to all. Robert was a fishermen and I only wish that he had come with me that night when I stoped by his house to get the crap net. Things could be different today,but not so. I want to start a fishing classic in his name and proceeds would help his son.

I want to have a blackfishing trip Close to Roberts Birthday in Oct.
all are welcome and we need to pick a boat. Celtic Quest is the one I'm thinking of simple because it is the northshore were we all fished.

How would I set up the the trip?
Do I supply Food and soda?
No Beer Kids will be part of the trip?
Do I have a raffle?
Will the boat help me set this up?

Any suggestions on setting this up.

While its a noble idea you need to consider who you will try to get on the boat. If its friends and family you can get away with charging a premium for fund rasing but if its strangers, how much extra do you think they would be willing to pay to go on this trip? I would imagine not too much. If you include food and drinks it will help or maybe include a big pool in the cost so that the winner gets 1,000 or something like that and or a raffle. If you figure that end out and still want to forge ahead getting the boat is the easy part. Desi and most other Partyboats will gladly accept a charter.
