The Foundation works in partnership and engages business and community partners in the support of public schools.

The 13th Annual Larry Wilder Memorial Fishing Tournament was held to benefit the Hillsborough Education Foundation November 7 – 8, 2019.

“Bard/AccuAir was one of the sponsors of the tournament and we had the opportunity to do it again this year. It’s a privilege to be able to support this foundation but, the best part is that it’s a lot of fun,” said Frank Suranyi, Engineered Products Manager of AccuAir, Inc.

The weather was great, the dinner was great, the bagged lunch was great, the beer was great, the people were great, the fishing was great, just a perfect day! The old cliché is true, “a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at the office”. The personal and professional interaction and socializing with fellow professionals was priceless. In addition, more fun was had during the raffle for some great prizes and a silent auction featuring autographed professional jerseys, photos, hockey sticks, high-end items and much more. We are eagerly looking forward to next year’s event hoping to do even better.
