Kama Lounge hosts Christmas Full Moon fundraiser
Thursday, December 15th, 2011
Kama Lounge held its Christmas Full Moon fundraiser for HelpAge Belize on Saturday night, December 10th. Making a guest appearance was Melonie Gillett. Belizean-born Melonie acquired a degree in Network Engineering while attending community college in the United States. But singing was her passion, so upon returning home from college, she began to test the waters in the local music industry. Her diverse background allowed her to experiment freely with various musical styles and she credits her family for being her biggest influence and motivation.
Melonie performed “Luv Mi”, available on her CD and a Christmas melody. HelpAge Belize is a cause that she was more than happy to assist with. Kama Lounge’s Christmas Full Moon party was complete with Santa Claus and his Elves, as well as specialty drinks while Karaoke Joe provided music for those wishing to showcase their vocal talents. This marks the fourth fundraiser that Kama has held to assist HelpAge.
HelpAge Belize provides service to the elderly in Belize City through a variety of activities, including but not limited to, homecare, visiting of the sick, social activities, meal distribution, companionship and craft-making to name a few.
Fifty percent of all proceeds from the bar were donated to the cause. With each drink purchased customers were also entered in to various gift raffles through the night.
