About the  Warriors for Warriors and the Charity Shark Tournament

The Warriors for Warriors Inc,. is an IRS designated 501c3 and we organize and run the Warriors for Warriors Charity Shark Tournament, an annual fund raiser tournament that features former US Navy SEALs, local veterans and local fishermen raising money for charities that support combat warrior veterans. Each year, the Tournament will announce a specific charity to support. This year, we will again, support Operation Restored Warrior (ORW), a charity operated by combat veterans, that has a highly successful program where warriors heal warriors of PTSD with the goal of preventing suicides. 22 veterans take their lives each day and with the help of our supporters, we can help prevent this from happening. Our event is run entirely by volunteers and we aim to keep our overhead very low by securing donated facilities, items and services so that we can donate as much as possible to Operation Restored Warrior. At ORW, 96.4 percent of all funds donated go directly to helping Veterans, putting them through a 5 day program, free of charge.
