PALMETTO - In this week's edition of Feel Good Friday, SNN's Grant Boxleitner spent time at the Bradenton Yacht Club in Palmetto.
A weekend fishing tournament here will benefit the family of an injured Manatee County teenager.
Caleb Bennett suffered a severe head injury during a boating accident in March. He's had multiple surgeries and is now in the healing stages. The "Hook Em For Caleb” fishing tournament is Saturday at the Bradenton Yacht Club in Palmetto.
Proceeds from the event will help cover family expenses incurred since the injury.
There are several divisions in the tournament. Fishing begins at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, and the weigh–in starts at 4:30 p.m.
