Bucketts Wings & More Hosting Benefit Nights For Employees Of Ft. Myers Beach Restaurants

Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel Island suffered mass destruction when Hurricane Ian rolled through the tiny island towns on September 28th.

With him, he not only took down the shops, stores, restaurants and homes of those on Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel, he also took their livelihood.  So many of Southwest Florida’s favorite restaurants were wiped out, leaving the employees with nowhere to turn for income.

Bucketts Wings & More in Ft. Myers wants to help, so they’re hosting staff benefit nights in the coming weeks.  10% of the days proceeds will go directly to the employees of that day’s featured restaurant.  To date they’ve already hosted days for Gramma Dot’s of Sanibel and Mantanzas on The Bay of Ft. Myers Beach.

If you know of a restaurant that was effected by Hurricane Ian, and could benefit from one of these nights, get them on the calendar.  According to a Facebook post from Bucketts Wings & More, they will be doing this for as long as it takes.  Reach out to Ainslie Walter at (408) 799-1391 to coordinate.
