Dedicated to improving the health and the life of children in the Seacoast, long term advocates for direct distribution of funds and expense free management, Paul and Anna Grace Holloway established the Wentworth Marina Striped Bass Tournament.

The annual Wentworth Marina Striped Bass Tournament, the sole fundraising event for the Little Harbor Charitable Foundation (LHCF), is credited with gifting over 60 programs and raising over $1.6 million dollars in support for Seacoast area organizations since 1997.

Sponsor funds, 100% of which is annually channeled directly to the designated beneficiary organization have subsequently assisted thousands of children with basic health, welfare, education services and crisis care in addition to stimulating interest in and access to the arts and personal enrichment opportunities.

Each year the beneficiaries are selected having identified a program or project that will make that most important contribution – a discernable difference in the lives of the children they service. Operating costs and overhead are never considered. Programs and projects are monitored by LHCF board members through audited, on-site visits to substantiate the results of funded programs.
