Havlicek Celebrity Fishing Tournament Set to Turn 30

The John Havlicek Celebrity Fishing Tournament, a people-spotting fishing and golf tournament that raises money for the Genesis Fund, celebrates its 30th anniversary this week.

The event was started by Boston Celtic legend John Havlicek and his wife, Beth.
