Last Saturday night, more than 500 people showed their willingness to make a difference when they attended a Christmas Luau, the fund-raising dinner held at the Plantation Garden Theatre.
Rudy Grant, one of the people involved in coordinating the event, told Barbados TODAY that the members of the business community, professionals, as well people from across the constituency came out to support the dinner hosted by the Make A Difference Foundation, which was started by Barbados Labour Party candidate for St. Michael South-East, Santia Bradshaw.
Political Leader and Leader of the Opposition BLP, Owen Arthur, Gline Clarke, and other members of that party attended the $200 a plate event. They, along with others, chose from the sumptuous buffet filled with seasonal staples such as ham and turkey, as well as delectable desserts, which Grant said was “exceptional value for money”.
“Everyone was happy, they had an enjoyable time. There was good camaraderie and everyone felt satisfied about their participation in the activity,” Grant said.
Bradshaw thanked her guests for their contribution and support for the dinner and the foundation. She also thanked those constituents who continue to support her and renewed her commitment to ensuring she provided the best level of political representation.
Entertainment was provided by Biggie Irie and Ian Eyan Alleyne.
The foundation is a charitable organisation which focusses on communities “predominately throughout St. Michael South-East”. Activities included basketball and football tournaments as well as a seniors’ picnic, a gift shop, a Saturday meals programme and a back-to-school programme.
The annual Christmas party for children was scheduled for this evening at the same venue. (DS)
