The Babylon Tuna Club is a non-profit organization, based out of Babylon, NY. It is also the only fishing club with an overnight and day boat Invitational Tournament. The Babylon Tuna Club is holding its 56th Annual Invitational Tuna Tournament on July 26-29, 2012.
The location is the Babylon Dock in Babylon, Long Island, NY. The club is now in its 76th year. Each year thousands of people come down to the dock to see the boats, the weigh in’s, to purchase fish, and enjoy a weekend of fun, food and vendors. After the fish are weighed, they are cut and sold, with 100% of the proceeds going to our troops and needy veterans through the local Babylon American Legion Post 94. Last year they raised over $11,000.00. This year, with your support, we are hoping to at least double this.
