The Emeril Lagasse Foun­da­tion raised more than $800,000 dur­ing its sec­ond Line, Vine & Dine fish­ing tour­na­ment, held Fe­bru­ary 8-10 in Fort Laud­erdale. Pro­ceeds ben­e­fited the Emeril Lagasse Foun­da­tion in sup­port of the Arc Broward culi­nary in­sti­tute and the Dan Marino Foun­da­tion, both of which aim to im­prove the lives of peo­ple with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties and other chal­lenges. HMY Yachts and Vik­ing Yachts spon­sored the sport­ing and culi­nary event, in which 16 teams caught 44 sail­fish. At the fi­nal evening’s Seafood Cook-off, Emeril Lagasse and guest chefs Sean Brasel, Clay Con­ley, An­gelo Elia, Cindy Hut­son, Greg McGowan, Habteab Hamde, Chad John­son and Jose Mendin pre­pared seafood dishes paired with wine from Napa and Sonoma coun­ties in Cal­i­for­nia. Tour­na­ment awards, a silent and live auc­tion, as well as a per­for­mance by Don­avon Franken­re­iter high­lighted the evening.
