As you know on Monday August 29th, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. The death toll from that awful storm is over 1,300, and the damage to property may be as much as $130 billion. In those numbers is the clubhouse of the Southern Yacht Club (SYC) in New Orleans. First it was 100+mph hurricane-force winds, then a storm surge and finally a fire that devastated the clubhouse.
The NYYC staff was touched by this tragedy and organized a $32,000 donation to aid affected Southern Yacht Club staff by foregoing their staff Christmas parties and combining these funds with proceeds from the yard sale recently held at Harbour Court.
