Canadian Fashion Guru Peter Nygård Jumps on Board to Sponsor Regatta

Peter Nygård, when asked by Bahamian musician “King” Eric Gibson to sponsor the 58th National Family Island Regatta this April in George Town, Exuma, he simply “jumped on board.”

“There was no hesitation on his behalf, and he asked for no publicity or nothing in return for his actions,” recalled Gibson, who befriended Nygård 30 years prior when he first introduced him to local Bahamian music. “What he has done is directly from his heart, helping the people and communities that need help.”
