PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Angry Tuna, Sharky's, Christo's and other local businesses are holding a silent auction Sunday to raise funds for Hurricane Dorian relief efforts on the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas.

Business owners say the money will be used to send a private plane and boat filled with supplies for storm victims.

"We have friends and ties down in the Bahamas that have just absolutely lost everything and were trying to raise money to help them out," said Angry Tuna Seafood Company Co-Owner Don Janovyak.

The event will be held at the Angry Tuna this Sunday, September 15 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Business owners say they plan to raffle off a lot of items including gift cards and a Harley Davidson motorcycle. They say they're hoping to raise $10,000.
