Pig Roast Fundraiser draws a generous crowd
Tuesday, February 19th, 2013
The community of San Pedro is known for its generous nature and on Sunday February 17th, locals and tourists alike proved that philosophy to be true. A pig roast beach party fundraiser was held at Wayo’s Beach Bar to benefit the Isla Bonita All-Star Marching Band. The Isla Bonita All-Star Marching Band will be attending the Governor General Sir Colville Young’s Band Fest in the coming few months and thus requires funds for traveling and boarding. Another major expense that needs to be met by the band is the purchasing of uniforms for the approximately 60 band members, hence the purpose for the fundraiser at Wayo’s.
The event started at noon and went through until after 5 PM and by all accounts the fundraiser was a great success. People got to taste a variety of food and treats there was an assortment of pies and cakes, cheese dip and of course, delicious pig roast on sale. Extra monetary donation besides the food sale was welcomed, and many people pitched in for the worthy cause. Throughout the evening the crowd was entertained by the talented youth from the band. All in all, it was a remarkable evening of support and fun.
The marching band has been practicing their skill at any chance they get and have become popular fixture on the island. The band hopes to attend the Annual Marching Band Fest but their dream is to bring home the coveted bragging rights. The Isla Bonita Band Committee would like to express much gratitude to Wayo’s Beach Bar for hosting the event and also to all those who came out to support the cause. To make a donation or for inquiries on the bands itinerary, interested persons can contact Eve Dirnback at phone number 623-9962 or Ana Cal at phone number 650-9003. Best of luck goes the Isla Bonita All-star Marching Band on their upcoming events.
