First Lady Casey DeSantis partners with Tervis for tumbler to benefit Hurricane Ian relief

Proceeds from all sales of the "Together We Shine" tumbler will go toward the Florida Disaster Fund.

VENICE, Fla. — First Lady Casey DeSantis has partnered with a Sarasota County-based company to create a unique way to support Floridians affected by Hurricane Ian: a special edition Tervis Tumbler.

On Friday morning, the first lady visited the drinkware company's headquarters in North Venice to launch the "Together We Shine" tumbler and water bottle.

Proceeds from all sales will go toward the Florida Disaster Fund, which distributes donations to organizations that will serve people within their communities with disaster response and recovery.

Since Hurricane Ian swept through, Casey DeSantis has led the effort to raise money for the state's private fund. She has helped raise nearly $40 million so far, her husband, Gov. Ron DeSantis, said on Friday afternoon.

Tervis partnered with First Lady Casey DeSantis to release the 'Together We Shine' tumbler for Hurricane Ian relief efforts

The design features what Tervis describes as "iconic Florida imagery" with palm trees, an alligator, a manatee, a sailboat, a golf hole, a flamingo and a rocket.

"Yes, we're the Sunshine State because of our weather. But when we come together to help one another, it's our spirit that truly shines," Tervis' website reads.

The "Together We Shine" drinkware can be purchased at Tervis stores or on the Tervis website. The 24 oz tumbler sells for $21.99, and the 24 oz water bottle sells for $26.99.

“Witnessing the aftermath of Hurricane Ian has been devastating to the Tervis family, as it has greatly impacted us all,” Rogan Donelly, president and CEO of Tervis, said. “But what has truly been inspiring is seeing how this hardship has united an entire region. People helping others out in any way they can, even if they themselves have experienced loss, is admirable. That is what motivated us to launch an initiative to raise funds for the recovery efforts for all Floridians.”
