Help Somebody if You Can Clay County Hurricane Irma Benefit
Hurricane Irma came through Clay County with a brutal force. Many lives have been changed forever and people need help. So a bunch of “Wild Eyed Southern Boys” have decided to team up with St. Michael’s Soldiers to ask everyone to “Help Somebody if You Can.”
This evening will have you dancing and singing the great songs of Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, Molly Hatchet, Tom Petty and more. Featuring Pinto Graham, The Curt Towne Band and Heavy Petty, with Special Guests Bobby Ingram of Molly Hatchet, Donnie Van Zant of .38 Special and Johnny Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Proceeds from this event will go to assist in recovery from the devastation of Hurricane Irma to Recovering Clay, Safe Animal Shelter, Friends of Clay County Animals and others.
Middleburg, FL – Recovering Clay is a focused fundraising effort to provide help to Clay County residents who suffered catastrophic effects of Hurricane Irma. The kickoff to Recovering Clay’s fundraising was held on Thursday, 11.9.17, at the Main Street Boat Ramp, 3788 Main Street, Middleburg, Florida, at 1:30 PM.
“We have an opportunity to offer desperately-needed assistance to our neighbors as they rebuild their homes and their lives,” said Joelle Marquis, Chair of Recovering Clay. “Money raised will stay in Clay County, and every dollar raised will go to those families who need it most.”
“Clay County was hit exceptionally hard, especially in the Black Creek - Middleburg area, and left many families without a place to live,” said Senator Rob Bradley.
“The weeks since Hurricane Irma have allowed us to identify the most pressing needs for Clay County families still suffering. While we are grateful for the relief agencies which have assisted, we must quickly turn the focus to what will be months, if not years, of recovery for many fellow Clay County residents,” said Representative Travis Cummings.
Recognizing Clay County residents’ hardship, a group of clergy and community leaders will work with Mercy Support Services to provide assistance to those in greatest need.
THANK YOU to all who joined Recovering Clay as it kicked off the fundraising effort.
