Hurricane Relief Fundraiser at 185 King Street
October 9, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A hurricane relief fundraiser will include live music, silent art auction and raffle. Fundraiser host Paula Patane says she and Mike Green have a deep-rooted connection to Water Island, USVI and all of the people that live there. The USVI endured two Catatory 5 hurricanes within two weeks of each other. The damage to the island and personal property was catastrophic. Everyone on Water Island lost something, some lost everything. The fundraiser will help purchase supplies that will be loaded onto a shipping container and shipped down and also to send funds directly in order for the residents on the island to be able to purchase groceries and other essentials. Organizers are hoping to raise enough money to also assist in the restoration of the solar power and rebuilding of 4 Elements. It is estimated that grid power will not be restored on Water Island for 6-12 months.
4 Elements is where Green and Patane did their work exchange in the past couple of years. Visit https://www.facebook.com/4-Elements-Water-Island-Culinary-Wellness-Center-383730091751770/. Contact Patane at 828-506-2585 or Green at 828-577-0387 for details.
