ANNAPOLIS, MD, December 18, 2023 – Reel Counsel, a Fish for a Cure (F4AC) team established in 2018 by Eagle Title and Liff, Walsh & Simmons, set out to break the fundraising record (again) for the fishing and fundraising event on November 4, 2023. The team did just that by raising a total of $164,095.20 and winning the Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge for the second year in a row, raising the highest amount in the 17-year history of the event.


The one-day event on the Chesapeake Bay is a culmination of months of planning, organizing, and fundraising for the benefit of helping patients in the cancer survivorship program at the Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute.


“Cancer has affected us all as a team in some way, and collectively we understand how this disease can turn lives upside down. Nurse navigators are the healthcare professionals who become your advocates and help you navigate the most difficult times. We all understand how important they are and wanted to give back to extend our gratitude,” said Jay Walsh, captain of the 2023 team of Reel Counsel and Managing Partner of Liff, Walsh & Simmons, and CEO of Eagle Title.


The 2023 Fish for a Cure fishing and fundraising event raised over $650,000 this year, with the Reel Counsel team’s efforts representing 25% of the total amount raised.


“Without the support from our family, friends, and colleagues we could not have done what we did. We are very grateful,” said Walsh.


The 2023 Reel Counsel team members include:

Jay Walsh, Brad Walsh, Tom Simmons, Barry DesRoches, Erin McNaboe, Bradley Benjamin, David Lillefloren, Ed Okonski, Jeff Kelly, Joel Wotell, John Rosso, Michael DuVall, Jr., and Nick Clark.
