Gov. Ron DeSantis joined Bass Pro Shops founder and conservationist Johnny Morris today for the launch of “Anglers for the Bahamas" -- a recovery effort to raise money for people in the Bahamas who were affected by Hurricane Dorian.
“Last Friday, I toured the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas by air and saw firsthand the devastation of the Abaco Islands and Marsh Harbor,” said DeSantis. “This week I was proud to announce our state has teamed up with FPL to donate more than half a million bottles of water along with the $11 million in generous donations from Floridians and corporations. Today, I’m proud to be with Bass Pro as they launch recovery efforts and raise significant funds to assist the people of the Bahamas in their time of need.”
