From one fisherman to another
September 22, 2019

ndurance Seafood was devastated by Hurricane Florence in September 2018. Owner Keith Bruno spent the past year rebuilding and redesigning his family-run operation, preparing for the next storm.

Hurricane Dorian hit September 5, 2019, almost one year later. Though it did little damage to Oriental, it devastated another fishing business: The Ocracoke Working Waterman’s Association co-op fish house.

Knowing what those fishermen are facing, Bruno decided to help by throwing a benefit concert and pig roast. Here him tell it in his own words:

Keith Bruno talks about the benefit concert for the Ocracoke Working Waterman’s Association.

With the help of donations from the community including a pig from the Piggly Wiggly, sides from M&M’s, and Bluegrass music from Songs From The Road Band, the benefit concert fed over 250 people and raised more than $10,000.

Bruno said he was overwhelmed and humbled by the community effort.
