Red Cross San Pedro Branch hosts Valentine’s Day fundraiser


The Belize Red Cross, San Pedro Branch hosted their Valentine’s Day fundraiser at Stella’s Smile on Sunday, February 12th. With a “Share the Love” theme, the fundraiser drew a crowd to enjoy their brunch special of savoury/sweet crepes and mimosas. Under the palapa, guests indulged their taste buds while DJ Matt Hoy spun love songs and took special requests for free.
The fundraiser also featured great raffles and a special table for Valentine’s card crafting, complete with candy heart sayings, glitter, and lots of bling! The Red Cross would like to give a huge thank you to Stella’s Smile for hosting and serving their menu at the fundraiser. As usual, the proceeds will go to support San Pedro Red Cross initiatives, such as blood drives, and health and wellness education in the community.
The Red Cross thanks all who came out and supported the fundraiser, in particular Matt Hoy, Kenny Guinn, American Crocodile Education Sanctuary Crocodile Tours, Ocean Ferry, Belizean Melody and Splashers, Madison Stone, Heather Smith, Pink Boutique, Brooklyn Brothers Bagels, Paradice Cream, Science & Soul Wellness Yoga at Mahogany Bay, and Candle Garden for their generous support.
The Red Cross also reminds the community that the first blood drive of the year will take place on Saturday, February 25th. Everyone is invited to come out to the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II from 9AM to 3PM.
