The Capt. Bob Lewis Kids Classic (CBLBC) was formed in 1993 and incorporated in 1998, obtaining 501 [c](3) status in January of 2000. It was named to honor the legendary South Florida professional fishing guide, Capt. Bob Lewis, who died in January 1997. The first tournament, planned on short notice, registered only five boats, but was a great success for those who participated. The proceeds benefit the youth of South Florida, through our youth educational and fishing/diving programs. CBLBC proceeds are donated to beneficiaries who exemplify the ideals of this Tournament. Contributions to Youth programs have reached nearly three hundred seventy five thousand dollars as of 2012. All Tournament Directors and committee members serve as volunteers with exception of the Executive Director.
The Captain Bob Lewis Kids Classic, Inc. is a 501, [c](3), not for profit Florida corporation, dedicated to promoting environmental education, marine conservation and improving the health of our youth in the South Florida community.
