Fundraiser organized for cancer patient

"Wings" with his son Tristian

Cancer patient Edwin "Wings" Gamez was recently diagnosed with cancer. After assessing the medical situation, Edwin and his family were informed that chemotherapy treatment was immediately required. This is set to commence shortly; financial assistance is therefore required. It is with this in mind that Edwin’s family has organized and will host a fundraiser this Saturday, January 23rd at the San Pedro Lions Den. Each plate of food purchased will give the buyer an opportunity to participate in a raffle to win many fabulous prizes all night long. Come out and show your love and community support to Edwin and all others battling with cancer.

Many surprises to auction and raffle through out the evening! There
will be Bar Tabs, Spa Treatments, lunches, dinners, salon services, diving trips, sailing trips, cave tubing and other fun items.
