Press Release

Published: Monday May 12, 2008

The 2008 Gibraltar Private Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament to benefit The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has just concluded and is proud to announce that it has raised more than $492,000 for the CCFA. Along with its numerous Sponsors, over 253 law firms throughout Florida and the United States have joined forces to raise awareness of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. These law firms, which usually go head to head in the courtroom, have found common ground in the battle against these debilitating diseases that often afflict children. The 2008 Law Firm Challenge Champion was Grossman Roth, P.A., of Miami.

The Tournament is the brainchild of Glenn Widom and his brother Mitch, who have co-chaired the event since 2005 after Glenn’s niece, Taylor, was diagnosed with Crohn’s. In only four years, thanks to the incredible support of the Tournament’s Sponsors, Participants and Guides, the Keymorada has raised over $1.3 million for the CCFA. In fact, the Tournament recently won an award at the CCFA’s national convention in New York for “The Most Unique Event in the Country.”

Mitch Howell of Coral Springs is the 2008 Krieger Keymorada Grand Champion and in addition to his trophy and beautiful Kreiger Tidal Wave Chronometer, received an invitation to the prestigious IGFA Championship Series. Captain Bob Branham was awarded top honors as the 2008 Keymorada Grand Champion Guide.

The Tournament takes place each year during the second week of May at the Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada, Florida. If you’re interested in fishing, participating as a Law Firm Challenger or as a Tournament Sponsor, more information can be found on the Tournament’s website at or by e-mailing Glenn Widom at
