Weekend Fundraisers...

There were several fundraisers over the course of the weekend, with many centered around the Halloween Theme.

Miriam Barrientos Fundraiser
Friday night saw the fundraiser for Miriam Barrientos. Mrs. Barrientos has been hospitalized in Guatemala City, and her son Carlos Perez (of Carlos & Cuts) along with friends and family, organized a fundraiser at the Lions Den. With music by Rompe Raja, and fun Halloween costumes, $5 drinks, everyone had fun and the fundraiser was a success!
Miss World Belize Fundraiser
Lety Lara was at Central Park hosting a BBQ fundraiser with her brothers and friends, in hopes of raising enough funds to help her on her trip to South Africa. Miss Lara will represent Belize in the upcoming Miss World Pageant 2009. Anyone wishing to help her reach her goal can do so by contacting her at 629-5676. Lety leaves the country to South Africa on November 6th.
ACES Halloween Bizarre
Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) held their annual Halloween Bazaar (Bizarre) complete with Spooky House, Fun House, Fish Pond, Tombola and even a Texas Hold 'Em Tournament for the big "kids". A Halloween costume contest was the highlight of the night, and students and parents alike who dressed up were able to take part and win fabulous prizes. Proceeds of the fundraiser will be used to cover classroom expenses and more.
SAGA Halloween for the Homeless
With the intent of raising funds for an anesthesia gas machine*, SAGA held its second annual Halloween Bash at Pedro’s this Sunday, October 25th. From midday, owners were encouraged to dress up their pets and have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes. The festivities included many games for the children, raffles and an amazing silent auction. Food and drinks and general fun was had by all.

*The primary purpose of the anesthetic machine and system is to deliver an inhaled (gas) anesthetic to the animal to keep him unconscious through surgery. The machine proves to be safer and it allows animals to wake up faster after surgery and will, therefore allow Saga time for more treatments.
