A GoFundMe campaign to help an unpaid restaurant owner in the Bahamas who says she fed thousands of unhappy people during the disastrous Fyre Fest music festival in 2017 has received over $90,000 USA in donations.

Ms Rolle, who runs the Exuma Point Bar and Grille, said: "My life was changed forever, and my credit was ruined by Fyre Fest".

Rolle said in the documentary that she was pushed "to the limits catering no less than 1000 meals per day".

Eugenie Bouchard: To me Serena Williams is always no. 1
Serena is a tennis champ who loves demolishing her opponents. "It's our win, '" Yastremska said, laughing at the memory. The time passes so fast. "She does everything well and I really like that she doesn't quit", she said.

Initially kicking off with a goal of $123,000, the Rolles have since raised upwards of $125k, with close to 4,000 people pitching in to help out.

The resort owner was hired to cater the festival-which promised music fans shelling out upwards of $1,595 a weekend filled with luxurious accommodations and five-star food-after the festival's founder Billy McFarland allegedly fired renowned restauranteur Stephen Starr's catering company. "This is going to be fascinating'". It's absolutely still amusing that a bunch of far-too-rich kids willingly let themselves be hopelessly trapped on a tiny hell island eating prison sandwiches because some slick showman promised them all Blink-182 and Instagram models. Rolle fed not only the festival goers but also the men who worked tirelessly to build the festival site that never fully came to be. She says she had 10 people working for her around the clock to prepare food. People will literally pay anything to be part of that world. "I went through about $50,000 of my savings that I could've had for a rainy day".

"I'm at the airport on Thursday morning (of the festival) when I got the call", Maryann recalled. And they just wiped it out.

Ja had enough, however, and hit Twitter to tell all of those who were criticizing his efforts that they didn't really know anything and that the documentary only told half of the story. In six days, more than 2,400 people have donated to Rolle and her staff on the GoFundMe page, which has been verified by the online fundraiser and endorsed by the film's producers.

His lawyer, Randall Jackson, argued McFarland committed the crimes because of an undiagnosed mental disorder, which led to mania and possible delusions of grandeur. He also had to forfeit $26 million. "I'm so glad to see you getting the payment you deserve", one donor, Alexandria Neonakis, said. McFarland plead guilty to the charges, following his original not-guilty plea.
