MarineMax in Brick, N.J., will sponsor the second annual Warriors for Warriors charity shark tournament on Friday and Saturday.

The tournament is a fundraiser run by former Navy SEALs that raises money for charities that support combat warrior veterans. This year the tournament is supporting Operation Restored Warrior, a veteran-operated charity focused on helping to prevent veteran suicide.

“This is the second year we have decided to sponsor this great charity event,” MarineMax Brick store manager Matthew Cini said in a statement. “Supporting the men and women who have served this country on the battlefield is a duty and an honor. We are proud to play a small part through our sponsorship.”

The shark tournament allows overnight fishing because large mako shark reportedly prefer to feed at night.

Boats are allowed to leave the docks immediately after the Captain’s Meeting on Friday. They must be back in the Manasquan Inlet by 6 p.m. in order to weigh sharks.

The tournament will be held on the Manasquan River and the weigh-ins will take place at the Crystal Point Yacht Club. The scales will be open at noon on Saturday.

An after-party fund raiser dinner that evening will provide an opportunity to meet the SEALs and Operation Restored Warrior leadership. There will be a silent auction and a live auction.

Special guests at the fundraising dinner will be U.S. Rep. and former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke, R-Montana, and Capt. Paul Herbert of the National Geographic Channel’s show “Wicked Tuna.”

A limited number of tickets will be available for the after-party fundraising dinner at $50 a person.
