Miss San Pedro invites you to a Magical Mayan Night Fundraising Banquet


Since winning the crown and hearts of the San Pedro community in August 2014, Miss San Pedro Michelle Nuñez has taken on several projects. She is not only a beauty ambassador, but someone who is striving to make a change in the lives of young girls in need of moral support. As such, Nuñez launched the SHINE (Shaping Healthy Identities through Nurturing and Empowerment) program with the assistance of On Eagles Wings Ministries (OEWM) to empower young women. In an effort to continue the program, Nuñez will be hosting a fundraising banquet to raise monies to build a SHINE/OEWM center and home for victims of sexual exploitation.I Am Me 2
“A Magical Mayan Night” banquet will be held at Ramon’s Village Resort on Saturday, May 16th from 5:30PM to 9PM. This fun event includes a dinner buffet, Chinese auction, Maya flute music by Pablo Collado and of course, refreshing cocktails. The night will also commemorate the final activity of the SHINE girls’ first semester curriculum. “I have been patiently waiting for the event to come. I am inviting my entire community to be a part of the SHINE center! Together we can make a difference. Come and witness Pablo Collado and his Maya Flute, enjoy some Maya Pibil Tacos, and start saving those dollar coins as the Chinese Auction is bigger than ever. Persons will have a chance to win two round trip tickets to Punta Gorda with Tropic Air, where you get to enjoy the activities at the ‘Chocolate Festival of Belize’ which also includes accommodations and lunch with a Maya Family!! Let’s get into the spirit and wear Mayan white,” said Nuñez.I Am Me
Tickets for the event are on sale at War Paint for $60BZ each or $300BZ for a table for six. For reservations, contact Nuñez at 623-3372 or 630-2560, or email [email protected].
