Hurricane Ian has blown through SWFL and taken many of our favorite people’s livelihoods along with it. The islands of Sanibel, Captiva, Pine Island, and Fort Myers Beach are unrecognizable and even if our favorite hangouts are still standing it will be a long time before they are able to reopen and serve as economic stability for our friends and family.
In addition to the destruction of the islands, communities in Fort Myers were wiped out by storm surge. Many of our friends lost their homes and all their belongings in addition to their places of work.
Put It On Pete’s Tab needs you now more than we did during COVID in 2020.
If you’re on Facebook you’ll see lots of “GoFundMe” links for our favorite people and places, but if you don’t want to donate there, you can donate through Put It On Pete’s Tab and designate who or where you’d like your funds to go to.
If you have a specific person or restaurant that you’d like the funds to be designated for, you can identify that after clicking the box that says,
You can also email [email protected] and let us know where you want your donation to be sent. If you don't tell us, we'll use it as we see fit.
If you are someone that was not affected by the storm, who loves this community, and who wants to support and encourage the people that make it special please donate.
Any amount will help and all donations go directly to those in the hospitality business that have been affected by this storm.
