New Port Richey, FL (Feb. 25, 2017) – Pasco Rebuilds Together, the group that was formed after last summer’s flooding rains caused extensive damage in south Pasco County, is holding an event they are calling “Raise the Roof.” Proceeds will support of long-term recovery efforts for the flood survivors. It’ll be held at the Verizon Event Center, 8718 Trouble Creek Road in New Port Richey (34653) on Saturday, March 12 from 5 to 9 p.m.
“With “Raise the Roof” we are building back stronger from the disaster,” said Kelly Miller the president of the Colonial Hills Association. “We’re inviting everyone to attend at no charge hoping for their support as we need donations to help so many people still effected from the floods,” she added.
There will be speakers, including Pasco County’s top administrator, Michele Baker.
A coalition whose aim it is to repair more than 300 homes that still have damage from the torrential rains in July and August was launched in late summer. The organization, Pasco Rebuilds Together, has used grant funds to hire two case managers and a construction worker to deal with an estimated 200 homes that still need repairs or other unmet needs.
Pasco Rebuilds Together is now accepting RSVPs for the dinner, donations and sponsorships. The fiscal agent is the United Way of Pasco County and donations are made payable to the United Way and designated for PRT. Table captians will accept donations at the event.
St. Rep. Amanda Murphy’s office is helping PRT organize this event as a way to offer support for so many people in her district dealing with this ongoing problem.
