The City of
Pompano Beach, Shipwreck Park and Florida based concert and festival promoters
are now working together in support of the Bahamas to host One Love
Bahamas, a benefit concert for victims of Hurricane Dorian to aid disaster recovery
and rebuilding efforts in the Bahamas. The official website for One Love Bahamas is
One Love Bahamas Concert for Hurricane Relief will be held on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at the Amp in Pompano Beach. 100% of net event proceeds will benefit Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas and be administered by Shipwreck Park a 501 (c) (3) corporation.
One unique way donations and event proceeds will be deployed to aid in rebuilding is to purchase, distribute and install packaged reverse osmosis units that will convert sea water into fresh potable water to areas where there is no infrastructure. These units will consist of a small generator for producing the power to run the reverse osmosis units, the reverse osmosis device and a large tank to store the water. Each unit is capable of producing nearly 1800 gallons of water a day, enough to support over 100 persons. The average cost of each unit is approximately $7,500.
Another way in which we are helping is by rebuilding homes for those who lost everything to the storm, are without insurance and have no financial means to rebuild. We are working with national building suppliers, large donors and UCI Bahamas LTD to pilot 3 homes on Abaco. The cost of building these homes is $400,000.
Lastly, we plan to make building materials available to those in need who are repairing their homes but are unable to afford materials. By coming together as a community, we can help our Bahamian neighbors live better lives in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.
Shipwreck Park Pompano is an all-volunteer organization and 100% of donations made to Shipwreck Park will be directed entirely to the relief effort for the foreseeable future.
Donations are tax deductible.
