Central Coast Dive Center Bosom Buddies Underwater Dart Tournament
CCDC is well known for its annual “Bosom Buddies” event, an underwater dart-throwing tournament to raise money for breast cancer research. The Annual Bosom Buddies Darts Tournament was created by owner Tommy Evans as a fun way for scuba divers to raise money for breast cancer research.
Tommy started Bosom Buddies after a member of his family suffered from this disease – and since 2000, Bosom Buddies has raised over $137,000 for breast cancer research!
Divers from around the Tri-State area gather at CCDC every year in October to don their scuba gear and compete in the tournament. Divers descend to the bottom of the pool and throw torpedo shaped rubber darts at underwater targets that are suspended in the water. Even new divers are able to compete by attending the “Discover Scuba Experience” that is offered prior to the competition!
Word of this unique dart tournament has spread, and dive shops across America (even the Netherlands!) are asking how to start their own Bosom Buddies underwater dart tournament. If you’d like to host an event, contact us for information on setup, rules and other material you’ll need for this great, but easy fundraiser!
Our ultimate goal is to raise one million dollars for breast cancer research! Join Bosom Buddies for underwater fun, for community service and for life!
Central Coast Dive Center & Boy Scouts of America
Central Coast Dive Center also has a strong relationship with the local Boy Scouts of America program, and leads programs that teach Boy Scouts how to dive so they can earn their Scuba Diving Merit Badge.
Much like scouting, the overall philosophy of scuba encourages the quest for adventure. It is a life changing experience that enables young men and women to embrace challenges in a whole new way. Our involvement with the BSA Scuba Diving Merit Badge program is a rewarding way for Central Coast Dive Center to get involved with the youth in our community!
We’re working on extending the program to the American Heritage Girls organization as well, after a successful program last year. Click here to learn more about our Boy Scouts of America program and other Youth Scuba Diving programs.
Bosom Buddies and BSA are only two of the ways that CCDC is involved in improving our community! Come join us – we can’t wait to blow bubbles with you – see you underwater!
