One of the most colorful annual events held by the Chesapeake Bay Wine Classic Foundation, Wine, Women and Fishing (WWF) has raised more than $800,000 for breast cancer research at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Open to women of all levels of fishing expertise, we enthusiastically thank everyone who participates in the tournament, especially the anglers, the captains and mates, and our wonderful volunteers. All activities take place under the big tent at Southside Marina – 416 Southside Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.
