The San Pedro Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to undertaking projects that benefit the community, will be holding its annual scholarship fund raising barbecue on January 19 at the Belize Yacht Club Beach. Through the sale of greeting cards, which feature a tropical hibiscus flower drawn by Marge Branger (a Foundation supporter and part-time resident of San Pedro), donations and the annual barbecue the Foundation currently is assisting three San Pedro graduates with their college expenses. Last year's recipients of the 2 year $3,200 scholarship are Karen Martinez, Olive Eiley and Mariana Ancona. In addition to offering scholarships, the Foundation has contributed to the R.C. School, the San Pedro library and other community efforts. The Foundation also receives contributions from visitors and locals who want to contribute to the welfare of the community.
This year with the assistance of the Belize Yacht Club, Susana Eiley and Shelly Huber, the barbecue will feature chicken and fish and all the trimmings with music on the beach. Tickets are $15.00 US and available from Gach Guerrero at Maya Island Air/Amigo Travel or The San Pedro Sun.
Donations may also be sent to the San Pedro Foundation, c/o The San Pedro Sun, P.O. Box 35, San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, Belize, Central America
