Finn and Martini holds Mother’s Day Lunch
Friday, May 13th, 2016
For the second consecutive year, Findley Halliday hosted a Mother’s Day Lunch dedicated to under privileged island mothers. The event took place shortly after midday, on Sunday, May 8th at Finn and Martini restaurant, where dozens of mothers were invited to enjoy a delicious three-course meal.
According to Halliday, this is one of the ways to give back to the community and he takes pleasure in doing such events during special occasions. The event is done to acknowledge special mothers who may not otherwise enjoy a proper Mother’s Day with all the pampering they deserve. Halliday has been taking the challenge to identify those mothers who don’t have the means to enjoy their special day and make them part of the celebration. He also extended invitations via recommendation. Anyone who knew of a deserving mother was asked to inform Halliday, who then extended an invitation to the person. The mothers who attended the event were very happy, and extremely grateful to Finn and Martini for the kind gesture.
Besides the staff of Finn and Martini catering to the special invited guests, Miss San Pedro High School (SPHS) Faith Noel was also present looking after the mothers. Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, motherhood, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world. While it is celebrated on the first Sunday of May, many Belizeans honour Mother’s Day on May 10th.
The event was another successful one, and Halliday thanks everyone who attended, as well everyone who contributed in one way or another to its success. Special thanks goes to Sotheby’s Belize, The Candle Garden, Fidos, Cuello’s Distillery, El Jefe Gourmet Food Truck, Sandbar, Premium Wines and Spirits, Jean Seruntine, Britanny McCann, Elizabeth Coppage, Miss SPHS Faith Noel, Super Buy, and the entire staff of Finn and Martini.
