JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Sandollar Restaurant wrapped up a 3-day effort to raise funds for Huguenot Park.
The park has been closed since it sustained nearly $1 million of damage during Hurricane Matthew.
Jacksonville city council plans to spend $500,000 to fix roads leading to the park.
That leaves another $500,000 in other damage.
The Sandollar depends on the park for business, so the owner held a silent auction and events this weekend to raise money to give to the city.
“We can do our part, we can't do it all. This is a start for everyone else too. Maybe the city will look at it and say, 'Hey lets start working on it too,'" Jay McKenzie, owner of Sandollar, said.
