It is with great pleasure to announce that the School’s Back Beach Bash fundraising event held at Palmar tent lodge early this month was a huge excess that exceeded everyone’s expectation. Thanks to an awesome turnout from the Bocas Del Toro community and invaluable support from our partners, Palmar and Jak Kennedy’s Tronco Negro ferry cruise, we were able to come together and raise the funds necessary to send all 17 of Bahia Roja’s deserving middle school students to school in Old Bank.
Now, for the sake of reliving the excitement, lets take a look back to some of the days most memorable moments.
Eddie’s eighteen year old brother Alexander will finally be achieving one of his lifelong dreams of attending the Panamanian police academy (school stars today!) thanks to the diligent fundraising of our stellar volunteer Elyse Eng in 2014. For those of you in other parts of the world, Eddie is a great friend of ours and the captain of our ship. He has been instrumental in taking charge of a number of projects in Bahia Roja and Bahia Honda. Alexander appears to be following in his steps towards a life of public service. After graduating from high school in the top 5 of his class, Alexander knew more than anything that the police academy was the next step for him. All of this was made possible through the fundraising efforts of Elyse and her network of supporters. We can’t thank you enough for making this possible!
