If you have been following Cowboy’s pool bar and grill facebook page and Mama Vilma’s website,then you know all about the Lounge fundraiser this past Sunday. It was a follow up to a fantastic evening at Wet Willy’s Cantina and a spur of the moment opportunity to raise more money for Mama Vilma’s.
Of course party planning in Belize is not always an easy job especially when it is last minute. We did not know till the morning of the event if we would even have sound. Cowboy Doug said it did not mater either way and he would be just as happy to see Karen relaxing in a lounge chair and enjoying the pool.
Thankfully everything worked out and Karen wowed the crowd from on top of the pool bar with 2 fantastic sets. She even had her own personal sunscreener below as you will see in the pictures.
Everyone was also very impressed with the surprise half time show Barrett acoustic. At 12 years of age he has so much talent, amazing singing voice great at guitar and has quite a repertoire of songs under his belt. Be sure and check out his official website barrettacoustic.com and listen to him live on barrettacoustic youtube channel.
The pool bar and grill was pleased to hand Mama Vilma’s a check for $500, not sure how much that Cheryl raised on raffle tickets.
Thanks to Mama Vilma’s, Karen Waldrup, Matt, Doug Maxwell and everyone who came out to enjoy the lounge chairs and the pool bar. Thanks also goes out to the local businesses who donated raffle prizes Roadkill Bar, Coco Locos, Wade the Gringo burgers, Wet Willy’s, DandE’s frozen custard, Mathieu’s Deli and Picasso Spirits.
