Dorian Devastation: How you can help

While South Florida was fortunate enough to avoid major devastation as a result of Hurricane Dorian, the island of Grand Bahama and the northern Bahamas did not weather the storm unscathed. These areas have seen mass flooding and destruction to residents’ homes as well as injuries and even deaths.

South Florida residents can show their support to our neighbors in the affected areas by donating to the following relief funds and collection efforts:

 

Donate supplies and support at Press & Grind Café

Press & Grind Café in Fort Lauderdale is accepting supplies donations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Tuesday, September 3rd through Friday, September 6th to support Great Abaco & Marsh Harbour in the Bahamas as the area recovers from the effects of Hurricane Dorian. Supplies needed include bottled water, clothing, toiletries, baby supplies, canned goods, can openers, batteries and first aid items.

If you overstocked items in preparation for the storm, consider donating them to this important cause.

Press & Grind is also accepting monetary donations toward their support efforts at https://www.facebook.com/donate/2351212471764069/?fundraiser.

 

Donate to United Way of Broward County’s Hurricane Dorian Fund

United Way of Broward County has activated a fund to help with relief, rebuilding and recovery efforts in the Bahamas and other affected areas. 100% of donations go directly to supporting response efforts.

Visit unitedwaybroward.org/donate to make a donation.

 

Ship supplies to Global Empowerment Mission via CBRRE

Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate is partnering with Global Empowerment Mission, a non-profit with three warehouses in southeast Florida that will accept direct donations or shipments from retailers like Amazon and Home Depot. Volunteers from Coldwell Banker Culture of Real Estate Group will be working to get these donations to the collection sites and eventually to the Bahamas and other affected areas.

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
