Through community fundraising efforts, Gabriel ‘Gaby’ Nuñez Jr., was provided with much-needed financial assistance for his travels to Cuba. Along with Bryton Codd, Nuñez will be representing Belize in the 2019 North, Central America and Caribbean (NORCECA) Beach Volleyball Tournament in Cuba. The tournament will be held from May 9th to the 13th.

The fundraiser took place on Labour Day, Wednesday, May 1st, at the newly opened beach park at the Boca del Rio Area. The fun-filled day included beach football, lots to eat and drink and great music by some of the island’s best Deejays. Supporters of the fundraiser enjoyed a sunny day on the island’s newest beach as they showed their support for Nuñez.
