Rotary Clubs to date raise over US$14,000 for The Bahamas | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – The Rotary Clubs of St Maarten/St. Martin, Anguilla and St. Barth’s, along with our Interact Clubs and Friends of Rotary, quickly came together, even while the Bahamas were still enduring the wrath of Hurricane Dorian, to establish a campaign to assist the Bahamas. 

It was determined the best approach to assist, after consultation with Rotarians in the Bahamas, was to raise funds to assist with the immediate needs of those affected by Dorian.  To date, a total of $14,848.15 has been pledged and/or collected. 

A special thank you goes to Rick Cassidy, a friend of Rotary, and the owner of Fat Tony’s Smokehouse in Cupecoy, Sint Maarten, who quickly organized an event with students from the American University of the Caribbean which raised $1,080. 

The Rotary Club of Sint Maarten is serving as the facilitator of the collected donations which are being transferred to the Rotary Clubs of Bahamas Disaster Relief Fund on a weekly basis.  The first transfer was sent on Monday, September 9, 2019 and the second transfer sent early this week. 

If you wish to DONATE to this worthy cause, with a worldwide organization you can trust, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
