BUCCANEERS defense attorney Michael O’Neil has raised $200,000 to help with Hurricane Irma victims in Miami, Florida, a campaign group said.
O’Neil, who is also a member of the American Civil Liberties Union, has donated $10,000 in donations to the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office and $5,000 each to the University of Miami Medical Center and Miami University Hospital.
In addition to his hurricane relief efforts, O’Neill is also contributing $50,000 for Hurricane Irma relief to the Broward County, Florida nonprofit Hurricane Recovery Fund, which is run by the Miami Beach nonprofit, Broward Emergency Relief.
O’Neal also donated $50 to the Hurricane Recovery Foundation and $25 to the U.S. Red Cross Hurricane Irma Relief Fund.
He also donated a $25 gift card to Miami’s United Airlines, which he plans to use to fly back to Miami after Hurricane Irma.
The Miami Herald previously reported that O’Reilly, who has served as an attorney for Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez and former U.C.L.A. basketball player Michael Beasley, had donated $100,000 through his law firm to Miami-area relief efforts.
Ollie was also among the most generous donors to the NFL in September, donating $100 million to help the NFL players who were injured or killed during Hurricane Harvey.
