Share the Gulf supporters, Captain Buddy Guindon and Captain Scott Hickman of Galveston, Texas, along with the Lighthouse Charity Team, flew to Destin, Florida this past week to tour damage from Hurricane Michael and coordinate the distribution of relief supplies, food and mobile cooking trailers to areas of Panama City impacted by the devastating storm. Joined by fishing Captain and Mayor of Destin, Gary Jarvis, and Captain Billy Archer of Panama City, the multi-state team hosted a charity cookout to collect supplies and resources to help storm victims through the difficult recovery process.
Many of the storm victims continue to have no access to appliances or electricity and have lost all their possessions, but restaurant owners and Share the Gulf supporters, Tyler Jarvis, Bryce Jarvis, and Chris Ruyan, are helping to make sure that doesn’t mean folks go hungry. Cuvee Kitchen & Wine Bar, Brotula’s, Jackacudas, Sunset Bay Café, and Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House cooked for and fed hundreds of people over the week following the storm. In the face of this catastrophic destruction, the Share the Gulf Coalition is proud of its supporters for banding together to relieve suffering in the community.
