LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A benefit to aid relief efforts in the Bahamas will be held at Captain’s Quarters Riverside Grille, located at 5700 Captain’s Quarters Road in Prospect, on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 4-11 p.m. The CQ Music Festival will specifically benefit WaterStep, a local nonprofit sending life-saving safe water and medical-grade disinfectant to the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands. Featured performers include This, That & The Other from 5-7 p.m. and Soul Circus from 8-11 p.m.
The suggested donation at the door is $20 per person and 100% of those proceeds will benefit WaterStep. Captain’s Quarters will also donate 20% of all sales during the event to the nonprofit’s relief work.
WaterStep already has some of its safe water equipment on the way to help Hurricane Dorian survivors in the Bahamas, and in the next few days, a full shipment of tools that produce safe water and disinfectant will be deployed. The shipment will include Disaster Relief Kits, M-100 Chlorine Generators and BleachMakers, which will be set up at a staging area in Abaco so that safe water and disinfectant can be distributed to those areas most in need. WaterStep will use online technology (Skype) to train members of disaster relief organizations already on the ground in Abaco on how to set up and use the equipment.
