Urgently Needed Roof Repairs! 
 Please help if you can! 

Our organization is looking for help to stabilize the roof of the main arena building. We have identified about 10,000 square feet of needed patching/repair. The roof repairs would consist of replacing rotted 1/2" thick plywood deck over 2"x10"x16' rafters over the metal truss system. Felt paper and tar/gravel. We need several licensed roofing contractors to come forward and make this happen. We will try to get the needed materials donated, and are seeking in-kind labor. We will purchase materials if we can't get them donated. This repair must take place very soon. We know 10,000 feet would be a very difficult burden for a single contractor to take on. If we had several or ten contractors they could repair 1,000 square feet each. If you can help or know of someone who can please call Orlando Bevington 941-960-0371. Thank you!!!
