The last time Mate Taylor Bowker of M/Y Northlander swung by Yachty Rentals in Ft. Lauderdale, he noticed the donation jar for Ursula Jerala, a 31-year-old stew who was hit by a car while riding a bicycle in town.
The Slovenia native is new to the U.S. and didn’t have insurance for her intensive care visit and now rehabilitation. So Bowker is throwing a party for her.
On Saturday, March 1, his event production company UGDProduction is hosting a fundraiser from noon to 5 p.m. at Yachty Rentals, 205 S.W. 28th St. behind Lester’s.
There will be a DJ and beverages, as well as a raffle. Prizes include a week’s scooter rental and a VIP ticket to a yacht party on March 6 at the Stache nightclub downtown.
“We like to party and do so yachties so we just started having these parties, and people started coming,” Bowker said. “And they are always fundraisers. If it were me, I’d want someone to help me out.”
