MTW Partners with Hooked on a Cure…again!
Hooked on a Cure is a community-driven non-profit in the Tampa Bay area. Annually, we host a Fishing Tournament and Captains’ Party, where we hold drawings and have a silent auction. In the last years, we have raised over $104,000 for JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and their mission to turn Type One diabetes into Type NONE! Here at Hooked on a Cure, our connection to Type 1 diabetes is very strong. Matt White, the founder of Hooked on a Cure and President and CEO of MTW, rallied alongside his wife Dr. Cindy Wood-White while she battled daily with Type 1 diabetes. Her fight ended in 2014 when she received a kidney and pancreas transplant. MTW and companies from across the U.S. rally alongside JDRF to help the thousands of children and adults living with Type 1. Along with donors and sponsors, MTW helped Hooked on a Cure surpass their fundraising goal! Hooked on a Cure is proud to announce that $50,000 was raised and donated to JDRF.
