The IBERIABANK Keymorada

The Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament raised over $700,000 through the 2017 event to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and the University of Miami Crohn’s and Colitis Center (UMCCC).

The Keymorada was the brainchild of two brothers; Mitchell Widom, a partner with Bilzin Sumberg, and Glenn Widom of Glenn L. Widom PA. The event was founded in 2004 after Mitch’s daughter Taylor was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 10. In a bitter twist of fate, Glenn was also diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2016. Together with Co-Chairs Alicia Widom (Mitch’s wife) and Ellen Shapiro (whose son suffers from Crohn’s), and to the incredible support of the tournaments many sponsors, donors, and participants, the Keymorada has now raised over $6 million to date for the CCFA and the UMCCC. In addition, over 200 law firms throughout Florida and the United States who have joined our efforts to raise awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by participating in and donating to our Thomson Reuters Law Firm Challenge. The 2017 Law Firm Challenge winner is Greenberg Traurig.

The fishing tournament takes place each year during the second week of May, at the beautiful Cheeca Lodge Resort & Spa in Islamorada Florida. The 2017 Keymorada Grand Champion Angler is Mitch Howell of Plantation, Florida, the Champion Fly Angler is Bobby Balogh of Coral Gables, Florida and the Grand Champion Guide is Capt. Jack Carlson. The 2017 Esrick Family Dream Foundation Flycasting Distance Champion is Capt. Brett Greco and the Accuracy Champion is Capt. Brian Esposito.

The 2018 IBERIABANK Keymorada tournament will take place May 8th-11th at the Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. If you are interested in getting involved, or becoming a sponsor or law firm challenger, please click here.
