Capt Peacock Helps Raise $1,000,000 To Promote The Outdoors

Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions helped raise $1,000,000 on October 12 at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s Wine, Wheels & Wildlife event in North Carolina.

The CSF’s mission is to work with United States Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.

Capt Peacock’s CEO Leonardo Leao said of the event, “We couldn’t be more pleased to do our part to promote the great sport of angling and are honored to assist the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation in their mission.”

Capt Peacock’s donation of a Signature Package for two to Brazil’s Amazon aboard the Rio Negro Queen sold for a record amount at the auction and the winner wasted no time in making plans head south for the Trip of a Lifetime.

“The winner and his wife are ecstatic about their purchase,” Leao says. “And can’t wait to venture to Brazil to cast a line for a World Record Peacock Bass.”

Capt Peacock will next assist the CSF at the annual California Wine, Wings & Wildlife event in July.
