Make-A-Wish Tournament and Kona Kai Anglers History
The Tuna Challenge’s humble beginnings date back to 1990 when it began as an intra-club tuna tournament. The Kona Kai Anglers created the tournament to bring some friendly competition to the revived Anglers organization with Frank Baptista and Jim Nicoletti deserving much of the credit for founding the Tuna Challenge. Two years later, the tournament became an invitational event with fishing clubs from all over San Diego participating. In 1994, the Kona Kai Anglers decided that they wanted to donate the proceeds of the tournament to a charitable organization and the Make-A-Wish Foundation was chosen to be the beneficiary.
