LOUIS BACON’S MOORE BAHAMAS FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES $250,000 DONATION TO RELIEF EFFORTS IN THE BAHAMAS – QUESTION: Should the PM accept his money?
THE BAHAMAS (October 7, 2015): Louis Bacon’s Moore Bahamas Foundation today announced a $250,000 donation toward the relief efforts and rebuilding needed after Hurricane Joaquin.
“The Bahamas are like a second home to me and my family,” said Louis Bacon. “We were saddened to learn of the devastation caused by Hurricane Joaquin in the southern islands. Having spent a great deal of time in these beautiful islands sailing, fishing and diving, my heart goes out to those families who live and labor in the Bahamas more remote islands, close to nature but most vulnerable. We pray that necessary aid gets to these islanders quickly and helps them in building back their lives, homes and communities.”
