The organizers of the upcoming SHINE (Shaping Healthy Identities through Nurturing and Empowerment) Fundraiser gave me a shout out to do some promo for them. I am always happy to help promote fundraising events that go on in our community, especially when it is about empowering youth.
SHINE and On Eagles Wings Ministries (OEWM) have been working together to provide positive role models and help empower young girls to live full and successful lives. OEWM, based out of the USA and expanded to San Pedro. More information on the organizations and pics from their first fundraiser can be found on my January post San Pedro Girls Empowered by SHINE & OEWM (On Eagles Wings Ministries) with updated information on the fundraiser which was originally scheduled for April 17, – now being held this Saturday May 16, 2015 at Ramon’s Village.
Magical Mayan Night at Ramon’s Village Resort
Saturday May 16th 5:30 – 9:00pm. Tickets are $60 BZ each and a table of 8 is $400 tickets can be purchased at Warpaint on Pescador Drive. If you feel like dressing in theme please wear Mayan White.
OWEM and SHINE are getting well known for hosting fabulous fundraisers and this event promises to be no different and well worth attending. As a community, we need to come together and help this event and the efforts of both groups who continue to be successful in making a difference in the lives of so many young women in San Pedro who need not only their help but know a place exists that they can turn to for that help.
Get your ticket for a wonderful evening of fun, great entertainment featuring Pablo Collado playing his Maya Flute and spectacular food After dinner, plans for their new building will be revealed and you will be able to bid on a fantastic “Chinese Auction” for an incredible weekend at the famous “Chocolate Festival of Belize” in Punta Gorda Town. The weekend includes round-trip airfare for two on Tropic Air, festival activities, complimentary hotel accommodations and lunch with a Mayan Family – a priceless experience worth bidding on.
Don’t forget to spread the word, if you have friends or neighbors you think would like to support a great cause by enjoying delicious food, great Mayan music and a delightfully chocolaty adventure as a Chinese Auction prize, please encourage them to go.
You can also show support by liking SHINE facebook page.
