The marine industry has truly stepped up to help friends and co-workers as the BHB Hurricane Ian Relief Fund has surpassed $60,000 in donations. The Annapolis and Ft. Lauderdale Boat shows each made significant contributions through campaigns at their shows and many other marine companies and individuals have been very generous.
“The most gratifying phase of this effort is beginning,” said MIA Executive Director John Good. “Applications for assistance are now available. It is a simple application, reviews will be a quick process, and checks will be sent with little delay. This is open to anyone who makes their living on the water who has been impacted by Hurricane Ian. Please share the link below and help us brighten the holidays for some of those in need.”
Minimum payments of $500.00 will be made to individuals approved by the committee. Online applications may be made here: RELIEF FUNDS APPLICATION

The BHB effort is far from over as recovery has entered the phase of extended rebuilding, shortage of materials, and unresolved insurance settlements. There will be fundraising campaigns at both the Ft. Myers Boat Show and St. Petersburg Boat show in January. Business and individual donations are encouraged to continue to assist the effort.
Tax-deductible donations can be made online at www.oldsaltfishing.org/hurricane. Make checks to Old Salt Fishing Foundation (Hurricane Ian Relief in the notes). PO Box 8564, Madeira Beach, FL 33738
