Our opening year of Fishing for APAC was a victory! We reeled in a total of 80 attendees including vendors and all levels of management; Regionals, Property Managers, Leasing Agents and Maintenance Teams.
Attendees gathered at the Fishing Headquarters- Drift Fishing Charter in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, June 6th for this exclusive event. Upon arrival, each participant received a tournament cooler bag filled with tumblers, lip balm, car chargers, stylus penlight and Neutrogena face sunblock and moisturizer, sponsored by Barfield, McCain, P.A. and CSC Service Works.
Prior to boarding the Catch My Drift Charter, attendees gathered around to inaugurate this event with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony presented by SEFAA’s Legislative Committee Chair, Darren Ayoub (Barfield, McCain, P.A.), President Jeremy Scholl (Greystar), and loyal partner Paul Licata (Interstate Restoration).
To refuel on the water, attendees were offered a variety of food and drinks including Panera Bread lunch boxes, sponsored by FCI Residential Corporation and The Q Group Builders, Inc., as well as snacks and bar drinks sponsored by Baxter Restoration and RentPath.
