The Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas hosted a spectacular evening this past weekend at the Hurricane Dorian Charity Art Auction. Fine Art by many of the Bahamas' most well-known artists was auctioned off with proceeds in aid of Hurricane Dorian Disaster Relief. The auction featured original pieces curated by John Cox (Baha Mar’s Creative Art Director) and Jamaal Rolle (award winning visual artist also known as “The Celebrity Artist”). Live entertainment was under the direction of Bahamian recording artist Julien Believe. The event took place at the prestigious Nexus Club at the Baha Mar Resort.
 
NASSAU, BAHAMAS – November 6, 2019 – Roland Thornton, Past President of the Rotary Club 31 in Denver, Colorado recently presented a substantial financial donation from civic leaders in Colorado to the Rotary Club of East Nassau for Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts.

Barry Rassin, Past President of Rotary International, and Francisco de Cardenas, Rotary East Nassau President, accepted the donation on behalf of the club. The group of 92 passengers who were visiting Nassau on cruise organized by Mr. Thornton delivered a package of 25 cheques to the club. Most of the passengers are graduates of Historically Black Colleges (HBCs) and a subset represent the Howard University Club of Southwest Florida.

“After much discussion the group had a strong desire to help in some way and asked me how to facilitate our efforts,” said Roland Thornton. “I informed the group that I am the past present of Rotary Club 31 and have complete confidence that Rotary will make sure any of our efforts will reach those in need.”

The donation will go towards the Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund and its ongoing efforts for sustainable rebuilding of the islands affected by the historic storm. 

When entering the grounds of the Bahamas National Trust’s Retreat Gardens on Village Road on October 5th it was impossible not to feel the energy surrounding the SoundWaves Festival for Hurricane Dorian Relief. The event successfully captured the full fledged festival atmosphere like nothing The Bahamas has experienced before, whilst raising more than $22,000 for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.
 
                At the festival music and poetry from local artisans took center stage. “It’s amazing to see the amount of eclectic local talent that our island has to offer,” said Tim Daniels, organizer and founder of the SoundWaves series. “It really is like a dream come true to see everyone come together to pull of a festival of this magnitude”.
 
Join us LIVE! We will be live streaming our speakers today. Please join us at 1:30 PM, September 6. Past Rotary International President Barry Rassin, and Past Assistant Governor Lindsey Cancino will be discussing Rotary’s role in disaster relief, including response, donations, and objectives.
