George Strait Helps Raise $1.5 Million for Hurricane Relief at Benefit Concert

George Strait headlined a benefit concert on Nov. 25 at ACL Live in Austin, Texas, that helped raise $1.5 million for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.

A frequent visitor to the Bahamas, George partnered with the Discovery Land Company Foundation, which hosted the concert, to help the local people receive assistance following the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in September 2019.

In addition, George helped create a themed t-shirt to support Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. All proceeds from the shirt—which costs $20—will benefit the Abaco Relief Fund, which the Foundation created to “assist with the immediate disaster relief needs of Bahamian citizens, including water, shelter, medical needs, and the recovery of the community.”

The t-shirt features a play on George’s chart-topping song, “Ocean Front Property,” with the colors of the Bahamian flag. The t-shirt is available now.
