Aquafino Island Resort & Spa raises funds for charities


On the evening of Saturday, July 30th, Aquafino Island Resort & Spa was host to a fundraiser fashion show, featuring the International Costa Maya pageant contestants and current title holder, Miss Honduras Gabriela Vanessa Salazar Valle. Part of the show involved their National Costume competition, but of course, there was some fun too, as they modeled outfits from Top Notch boutique.Aquafino fundraiser with Costa Maya Delegates-1
A silent auction, as well as bar proceeds were to be divided to help out three different entities: the San Pedro Police Department, The San Pedro Rotary Club and The Inspiration Center. Providing music was the inimitable DJ Dzl, and food came via Pirate’s Treasure, Hidden Treasure and Caroline’s Cookin’. Guests enjoyed a wonderful evening on the deck, taking in a breathtaking sunset and even more fabulous fashion show!Aquafino fundraiser with Costa Maya Delegates-2
In the end, over $14,000 BZ was raised, and Aquafino is hoping to host the fashion show annually. William Nord of Sandy Points Real Estate was very pleased with the outcome of the fundraiser. “This was our first year doing the show, and it was fantastic! The girls were beautiful and gracious, and they did an incredible job,” said Nord.

Aquafino thanks everyone who supported came out and supported the good cause.
