Some in the Virgin Islands held fundraisers in honor of the one year anniversary of Hurricane Irma.
On September 6th, Aqua Bistro in St. John hosted a pig roast. The event raised money for two island non profits, St. John Rescue and Island Health and Wellness. Those who helped organize the event tell USVI News it was a wonderful way to come together on a difficult day.
“Having a big party at Aqua Bistro is just a chance for everybody to kind of gather on a day that easier for some than they thought and harder for some than they thought,” Kerrin Buckley said.
The event raised $2,000 for local non profits.
