Harvey relief event and NFL kickoff party
The Krewe of Neptune and the Margaritaville Resort are partnering together with the community tonight to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey in a fun way.
The two groups joined together tonight to take donations and any supplies that community members want to donate to those suffering from the hurricane in southeast Texas and also kick off the NFL season.
The event took place at the Landshark Bar and Grill and was free admission, but donations were encouraged. Margaritaville Public Relations Director Ann Carter Bloomfield said, “We have asked that they bring in water and batteries, gloves, tools, anything that can help the victims. We know from Hurricane Katrina that people willing to step in and give, that’s vital.”
Bloomfield tells News 25 most members of the Coast have been more than willing to help after remembering the help they received after Hurricane Katrina.
