The IBERIABANK Keymorada

The IBERIABANK Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament benefits the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and the University of Miami Crohn’s and Colitis Center.

The Keymorada Invitational 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 almost $8 million for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation and the UM Crohn's & Colitis Center. In addition, in 2019 over 220 law firms throughout Florida and the United States who have joined in 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 2019 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 2019 Keymorada Grand Champion Angler and Top Fly Anger is Glenn Widom and the Top Woman Angler is Audra Mallow.  The Grand Champion Inshore Guide is Capt. Richard Black, the Grand Champion Offshore Guide is Mike Macko and the 2019 Esrick Family Dream Foundation Flycasting Distance Champion is Capt. Richard Black and the Accuracy Champion is Capt. Brian Esposito.

The 2020 Keymorada tournament will take place May 5th-8th at the Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. If you are interested in getting involved, or becoming a sponsor or law firm challenger, please click here.
