According to Rochesterfirst.com, Local businessman, philanthropist and former owner of the Buffalo Sabres – Tom Golisano donated the use of his yacht earlier this week to aid in the relief efforts in the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian.

According to the site, the yacht, Laurel, was used to transport 30 tons of supplies including water, food and sanitation kits from Nassau to Freeport. Along with transporting essential supplies to the areas impacted by Hurricane Dorian, roughly 50 dogs were rescued from the destruction caused by the hurricane. “I was very pleased to be able to assist in this global humanitarian effort to help the people and some of the dogs impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Laurel and our incredible crew led by Captain Roy Hodges, all did an amazing job bringing essential supplies to the Bahamas and rescuing about 50 dogs who were left homeless when the shelter in which they lived was destroyed. I am very proud of all their hard work. We will all keep the people of the Bahamas in our prayers,” said Golisano.

What an amazing thing to do!!!
