Atlantic Beach -- The 2nd Annual Atlantic Beach King Mackerel Tournament wraps up this weekend and all proceeds go to the Atlantic Beach Volunteer Fire Department to raise money for life saving equipment.

Last year's tournament raised over $20,000 to purchase a side by side vehicle that is responsible for helping save seven lives since it was purchased.

This year the goal is to purchase a $15,000 piece of lifesaving equipment requested by the Fire Dept known as an AutoPulse Resuscitation System for Automated CPR.

The Atlantic Beach King Mackerel Tournament is a non-profit fundraiser supported entirely by volunteers with the mission of purchasing lifesaving equipment for the AB Fire department.
