HURRICANE BTW GAINESVILLE HOSTS FUNDRAISER FOR MARJORY STONEMAN DOUGLAS H.S. VICTIMS AND FAMILIES; RAISES MORE THAN $3K
WHAT: Hurricane BTW Gainesville, a fast-casual sub-brand of Hurricane Grill & Wings, raised $3,250 last night at a fundraiser for the victims and families of the recent Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy. All sales from last night from 6:00 to 9:00pm at the Hurricane BTW Gainesville location (1402 West University, Gainesville, FL 32603) were donated to the victims and their families. The Hurricane BTW West Palm Beach location hosted a fundraiser last night as well.
The franchise owner, Jack Gandolfo, decided to host the fundraiser after a request from employee Gabby Noud, who is from Parkland.
“Several team members here at the restaurant are graduates of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, so this tragedy really hit close to home for us. We’re privileged to have the opportunity to give 100% of sales to support the families of the victims,” said Gandolfo
