We are coming together to make a difference

 The Avon Pier at Koru Village is thrilled to bring back the all-women’s charity fishing tournament, Fish Like A Girl, for its 5th year on Saturday, October 5th, 2019. This empowering fishing tournament is about bringing our community together for a day of fishing, fun, raising funds for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, and lots of pink! We welcome ladies of all ages to participate in this incredible event. 

Last year’s Fish Like A Girl tournament had over 200 participants and raised thousands of dollars for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation. The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation is an all-volunteer group that provides support for cancer patients and their families who live on Hatteras Island and who often have to travel long distances for treatment. 

Come out fishing on the Avon Pier dressed in your craziest pink, have a fun day with the girls, and become part of an event that makes a difference to those affected by cancer on Hatteras Island. 

This event would not be possible without the generous help of our title sponsor, Carolina Brewery, along with many other local and industry sponsors, listed at the bottom, who believe in the difference this empowering tournament makes. 

Sign up for this event at the Avon Pier, Spa Koru, or Email Joe Thompson at to become an event sponsor. Learn more about Fish Like A Girl on its Facebook event page or call the Avon Pier at 252-995-5480.

    How sad and ironic to facilitate and promote cruelty to raise funds for those suffering from cancer. Science has shown that fish suffer fear and pain, too. Fishing entails torturing and killing these sentient beings, who deserve respect and compassion not cruel exploitation. Encouraging children to fish is to encourage them to abuse animals. There are many nonviolent, enjoyable ways to raise funds. Fishing is not one of them.
