The Big George Back In The Day Clobberfest is a 4 on 4 beach volleyball tournament in memory of George Hunt IV. There is a $100 per team entry fee which includes event t-shirts and there will be first, second and third place prizes for the winners. The proceeds go directly to the Florida chapter of the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association and is used to help individuals with Prader-Willi Syndrome and their families as well and goes towards research to find a cure. George was a big beach volleyball player who loved the game but most of all loved his family. George's daughter, Keaten Hunt, was diagnosed with this syndrome at three months old so the cause was near and dear to his heart and this tournament is a way he can still help and support his daughter. We will also be holding a silent auction/raffle with items donated by local buisnesses. For more information on the syndrome please visit the Prader-Willi Syndrome tab at the top of the page.
Why should you sponsor?
Our event was extrememly sucessful last year and we hope for it to grow! It is held in a heavily populated area, Frenchy's Rockaway Grill on Clearwater Beach, and the shirts were purchased even by prople from out of town. We already have several teams signed up and expect an even better turnout than previous years!
My name is Terrann Mayo, I am the sister of an eight year old with Prader-Willi Syndrome and the daughter of George Hunt IV who was a champion beach volleybally player. I wanted to find a way for George to continue helping and supporting his youngest daughter even after he passed away when she was four and this seemed like the best way to do it. The tournament was origionally put on to raise money for my sister alone by our friends and family and I decided last year to expand it to help our whole Prader-Willi Syndrome family! These are some of the greatest people I have ever met and I only hope this tournament helps them as much as they have helped my family and my single mother navigate this syndrome over the years.
