Michael Newman

With this summer’s landfall of Hurricane Michael in the Florida Panhandle, tonight’s event sits close to the heart of many of the Sunshine State’s residents. Feeding South Florida sent many of their resources north to help those in need. In addition to replenishing their supplies in Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, a portion of the proceeds of this event will go to help those in the Panhandle directly.

With that, a number of locals and some of the Seminole Hard Rock’s most loyal players are out supporting the cause.
