Despite a call for rain, the Saturday, June 18th night was clear and perfect, just right for a night of honoring some of Belize’s most vulnerable, our children. Funds are needed to sustain the outpatient rehabilitation center in Belize City, which aids children with disabilities from all over the country, including Ambergris Caye.

Kim Simplis Barrow, Special Envoy for Women and Children and wife of Belize’s Prime Minister Dean Barrow, warmly welcomed everyone, detailing the work done at the Inspiration Center to help our disabled children. After a few remarks by Beth Clifford, President of Mahogany Bay Management, Ltd., the evening was opened for some fun.

While the bar provided refreshing drinks, the kitchens of Victoria House, Rojo Beach Bar, Ambergreens Organic Aquaponics, Taco Shack, BelCampo, El Fogon, The Farmhouse Deli, Lino’s Meat Shop, Mahogany Bay Village, Pineapples on the Beach, and Elvi’s Kitchen served delicious food. The Tequila Shooters band provided great live music, and during breaks, talented DJ Dzl spun tunes to keep the dance floor filled till the wee hours of the morning.
