Guides Trust Foundation Accepting Donations for Hurricane Relief / September 15, 2017 / Bonefish & Tarpon Trust
Hurricane Irma was the largest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic. From its landfall in Key West until its flood-soaked exit from Jacksonville, Irma engulfed the entire state with torrential rains, powerful winds, and devastating storm surges, impacting millions.
No region was hit harder than the Florida Keys. This special community of fishing guides and anglers faces a long road to recovery. Damages to business and personal property, loss of income from canceled days on the water, and reduced travel and tourism to the Keys make this time especially challenging. But we can help.
Bonefish & Tarpon Trust is pleased to join with the Guides Trust Foundation in supporting a special guides relief fund. Dollars raised will be provided to guides and their families during this difficult time by the Guides Trust Foundation based on recommendations made by the Florida Keys Fishing Guides Association and the Lower Keys Guides Association.
Your support is needed, too. Please send your most generous contribution to Guides Trust Foundation c/o Rand Holstead, 1800 Augusta Drive, Fourth Floor, Houston, TX 77057. Or click here to donate online. Please reference “Hurricane Irma” in the notes section for online gifts.
