The three-day event attracts more than 350 visually impaired persons, 130 sighted guests, and 300 volunteers to the Outer Banks each year for a fishing tournament and educational, recreational, and personal growth opportunities.

The NC Lions VIP Fishing Tournament is sponsored by the First Flight, Manteo, Nags Head, Columbia, Wanchese, Lower Currituck and Plymouth Lions clubs.
