Marker 8.5 Move and Rebuild

Hello! This is Chef Michael Duncan former owner fo the Marker 8.5 in Goodland.

As you are aware, hurricane Irma destroyed the fishing community of Goodland on Marco Island. Marker 8.5 was totall demolished and condemned by the devastation. Irma caused widespread and catastrophic damage especially to Florida in what has been recorded as the most intense Atlantic hurricane to hit the United States since Katrina in 2005.

I am a native Floridian, born in St. Petersburg. I have been involved with many private clubs across the country, Doral, Fontainebleau Hilton, 20 years at the Ocean Reef Club and the Naples Yacht Club. I also opend an Island Style Restaurant with a flare of the keys where I have lived for 20 years with my family.

Throughout all these years, I have been involved in many local events supporting community groups such as Soup-a-Thon, YMCA Golf Tournaments, Chili Cook offs, Taste of Marco, and many more. I have always given back to the community.

Now I am asking for your help. I'd love to rebuild in this area and be your host once again! Any donation, no matter how large or small would be a blessing. Thank you in advance for your prayers, contributions, support and/or your investment.
