The SC Memorial Reef is in the planning stages, and is actively raising funds to procure a large vessel that can be sank off the coast to create an artificial reef. The permits for the ‘Deep Reef’ are already in hand and several skeet shoots and fishing tournaments have been held to raise funds. On Friday July 10 at the Charleston City Marina the S.C. Memorial Reef will team up with the Megadock Billfish Tournament for a fundraiser under the ‘Mega-tent.’ Happy hour begins at 5 p.m. after the days fishing has concluded, followed by a silent auction, catered dinner and a live auction with all funds raised dedicated to the memory of Robert ‘Robbie’ C. Johnson. For questions or ticket information contact Shannon Seabrook at 270-0003.
