Realtree Fishing Named Official Camouflage of CCA Florida
The Realtree Fishing camouflage pattern and brand follow the parent company tradition, partnering with conservation groups to ensure the continuation of our outdoor heritage and habitat for generations to come. Today, the Coastal Conservation Association Florida announces Realtree Fishing as the group's "Official Camouflage," creating a partnership that will help both organizations meet their conservation goals.
"I have seen firsthand the great work of CCA Florida and their statewide volunteers," said Realtree president and CEO Bill Jordan. "With Florida as a next-door neighbor and a great state to hunt and fish, I've spent many hours, days and weeks there enjoying the outdoors. CCA Florida has been instrumental in bringing back and maintaining so much of the state's incredible natural resources, and all of us at Realtree are especially proud to team with such a respected conservation group to keep our traditions alive."
In addition, Realtree Fishing is contributing $25,000 to be awarded in the CCA Florida STAR Youth Scholarship Division, Presented by Academy Sports & Outdoors. CCA Florida's "New Tide" (youth) members from ages 6-17 are eligible to participate, ensuring this sponsorship meets Realtree Fishing's main goal of getting youth outdoors.
"Realtree's dedication to family and friends, conservation, the outdoor lifestyle and their new Realtree Fishing brand with the iconic hook/antler logo make them the perfect 'official camo pattern' for CCA Florida and the STAR competition. CCA Florida and STAR are thrilled to partner with such a wonderful organization as Realtree. Their support of a $25,000 scholarship in the 2018 and 2019 Youth Division of STAR and their support as a sponsor of CCA's statewide initiatives is a great compliment to all our organizations efforts," said STAR Director Capt. Leiza Fitzgerald.
