Fundraiser for Casper Wood a success
Wednesday, November 26th, 2014
Island residents gathered at ABC Pub and Grub on Saturday, November 22nd to raise funds for bass player Casper Wood. After an afternoon of great food, drinks and music, the fundraiser was deemed a huge success raising approximately $3,000BZ for Casper’s medical expenses. Casper, who is a well-known musician in San Pedro, was recently forced to quit working due to his health. His condition requires the use of a pacemaker (a device that is placed in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms).
The fundraising event consisted of raffles and a turkey dinner sale. Generous patrons also made monetary donations both locally and internationally via PayPal. With the money raised, Wood will be receiving immediate medical treatment here in Belize before leaving for his native country of Panama where he will receive further specialized assistance.
Big thanks go out to Don Sebastian and Cristy of ABC Pub and Grub, Wendy, Mary, Angela Orofino, Sierra Ashton, Robert Ashton, Tull Rea, Keith Cameau, Mike, and Lydia Estes for organizing the event. Special thanks goes out to the many business that contributed towards the fundraiser: ABC Pub and Grub, Caliente Restaurant, Casa Pan Dulce, Caye Mart, Estel’s Dine by the Sea, Fido’s Restaurant and Bar, Gecko Graphics, Green House, Island Movie, Liquor Box, My Secret Deli, Richie’s Supermarket, Quality Poultry Products, Sandbar, Super Buy, Wayo’s Beach Bar and The San Pedro Sun. Get well soon Casper!
