Family Centre Beach Bash To Be Held Tonight

September 26, 2014

The Fifth Annual Family Centre Beach Bash will be held tonight [Sept 26] at the Fairmont Southampton Ocean Club Beach, directly on the sand. 530 persons have reserved seats to take part in this spectacular event that has grown in popularity since the first party in 2010.

This one of a kind fundraiser brings the community together for a unique entertainment experience, while keeping the sole focus and purpose of the event on support of Bermuda’s children.

Executive Director, Martha Dismont states “Without the generous support of community partnerships and sponsors, this event could never take place. The support of our title sponsor, Mike Collins, has helped us to make sure this is a very special event with the appearing of AKNU, the 2013 X Factor singing sensation group.

“They will be joined by local artists, Working Title, who will serve as their back-up band, De Onion Patch Crew, Ronnie Lopes and the Secrets Band. The reception will be kicked off with a beginning solo by Sarafina Durrant.

“Other major sponsors are Aspen, Oil Management, Gosling’s, Barritt’s, BF&M, Ironshore and the Argo Group. Their sponsorship demonstrates their commitment to community and their confidence in Family Centre services.”

Guests will enjoy a complimentary welcome signature drink from Gosling’s or a complimentary Ashley’s Lemonade and a food station barbeque. Two + Quarter Studios will sponsor their photo booth being on-site for fun and wacky pictures, lanterns will be launched across the water and a Bermuda pink theme are part of the event enhancements.

There will be a raffle draw with prizes including Tucker’s Point Resort 2-night stay with golf and 2 nights at the Fairmont Boston Copley Plaza. Over 80 silent auction items are available for bidding, including many travel possibilities from Miami, to Vancouver, San Francisco, Las Vegas and South Africa to jewelry and an electric car.

MC, Ed Christopher, will keep the night rolling along in his enthusiastic style, with a dynamic on-stage presence to match the tempo of the evening.

Mrs. Dismont adds, “We are excited to have attracted our target number of attendees. It shows the commitment in this community to support programmes that support our youth.”

She concluded: “One of the most appealing aspects of the Family Centre Beach Bash is that it is one of the last beach parties of the summer with casual dress and it brings so many people together in a relaxed environment. The location celebrates the unique beauty of Bermuda and raises funds to assist children-a combination that surely is a win-win.

“The funds raised at the Beach Bash are crucial to our success in 2014. We want to thank everyone in advance for their participation, and particularly our team of volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make this event a success.”
