The Inspiration Center (their motto is, aptly, Where Hope Lives) was founded in 2014 by our Prime Minister’s wife, The First Lady of Belize, Kim Simplis-Barrow to help some of the most vulnerable children in Belize. The facilities are located just outside of Belize City.
Today, its 19 staff members (including one doctor, one speech therapist and one physical therapist) help kids from all over the country – both at the center and with community outreach. They encourage early diagnosis and see babies as young as one month old to gauge hearing and physical abilities.
They help the kids, teach the parents and the communities. And their waiting list is long.
They are having a benefit here in San Pedro. And I hope that everyone who is able can help in some way. June 18th, 7pm to 11pm at the Mahogany Bay Great House.
Dress code is Evening Casual WHITE. Think white slacks and a white button down, or a simple white dress. This is not a super formal event.
Tickets are available at Ramon’s Village, El Fogon and Rum + Bean Coffee Shop at Mahogany Bay. ALL proceeds will go directly to the Inspiration Center.
At 8pm, food will be served. Tables/food are being donated by Belcampo Lodge in Punta Gorda, by Ian Anderson’s Farm House Deli, by Victoria House, by Rojo Beach Bar & Lounge, by AmberGreens, the gorgeous aquaponics green house on the Mahogany Bay property and by the TacoShack, also part of Mahogany Bay. From 9pm to 11pm, there will be a band called The Tequila Shooters…rock n roll and dancing.
There will be a raffle at the event as well.
