The general public is invited to support a fundraiser event on March 28, 2020, at Banana Beach Resortís El Divino Restaurant. Set to benefit the Sunshine Scholarship Foundation, the event will start at 4PM, featuring a musical performance by Jake Hill Productions alongside Mr. Vegas McGraw. There is no entrance fee, but there will be a VIP section, 50/50 raffles, silent auctions, and even Chinese auctions. All proceeds will benefit the scholarship fund that will help island children attending Isla Bonita Elementary School.
Over the years, the foundation has supported many children with scholarships, school supplies and after school tutoring. The annual cost of school fees at the school is $US1,250 per student, and the target this year is to assist four children. According to organizers of the fundraiser, these students have been identified based on their academic performance and financial need.
The organization also helps children with special needs, and in the past has assisted a visually impaired child. According to one of the organizers, Joy Flowers, the idea behind the foundation is to help children excel in school by accommodating their needs.
