Boyhood buddies and Vero Beach favorites Mardy Fish and Jake Owen believe in giving back to the community. Five years ago the professional tennis player and country music artist launched a fundraising event that is providing additional programs and activities for children every year.

The Mardy Fish Foundation’s fundraising event has grown over the years and Tom Fish, Mardy’s father and foundation president, has been there every step of the way.
