On Saturday, February 19, 2011 the Mama Vilma’s Family Home held its fashion show fundraiser at Coco Locos Bar, just north of the Boca del Rio Bridge. The venue was packed with many locals and tourists who were proud to show their support in making this family home a dream come true for the island of San Pedro.
President of the Mama Vilma’s Family Mrs. Shelly Huber and Mrs. Eve Dirnback, Vice President, were so happy to host this amazing fundraiser with the help of the San Pedro community. The fantastic fashion show was hosted by Chris Burkey which show featured local male and female models modeling clothing from the following boutiques: 4:20 Men’s Clothing, Island Vibes, Moondancer, Island Gear, Sarai, Blu, Top Notch, D Sea, Pretty Ethnic, Mambo Chill, Reef Boutique and Addy’s. There was also the premier presentation of proud Sanpedrana Yvonne Bradley’s clothing line.
Wowing the crowd was Lara Goldman (Romantic Travel Belize) and her fantastic fire dance performance. There were also many auctions available of donations made possible by: paintings by Tyrell, Man at Work, all Day Catamaran trip on the Marely Jean and paintings by Kirt Cruz.
There was also some delicious food available by: Fido’s, Banana Beach, Legend’s Burger House, Annie’s Pastries, Caye Winds, Emma Varela, Dana Palma, Atlantida Eiley, Shelly Huber and Francisca Acosta.
