Dara Hosts 14th Annual Bob Marley Tribute and Food Drive

Humanitarian Dara Robinson is hosting another fundraising event to help the many children that benefit from his feeding program. On Sunday at the Bird’s Isle in Belize City, the fourteenth annual Bob Marley Tribute and Food Drive will take place. Residents will be able to drop off food items or make their contributions by attending the event. Robinson stopped by News Five’s studios today to invite the public to the tribute.

“The only difference with this one, we gwen up against the Super Bowl so we wah show this out there same way. We wah have the food drive going on. It’s not a must, but if you come and purchase a ticket you are still giving to the event and if you purchase from the bar, you are giving. This is one way how I raise funds for my feeding program and thing. It will be on a Sunday, a family day. It is something weh yo could bring out granny, grampa, pikney anybody because dah reggae music, but dah clean conscious reggae music. and we di talk Bob marley so it will be on the highest level. From four o’clock I wah got music and the barrel set up with the concert wah start six and we gwen till one. So we got enough time for people to come out, pass through, enjoy the vibes. All I di ask is for good behavior and for the people to respect the police and the police respect the people.”

“I try keep it between forty kids because that dah the space. But I find myself sometimes go over that. And besides that, yo got other people from the community that come now and again for something. And dah just my life and how I live and I enjoy doing it because I get my own blessings from it especially when I deal with dehn kids. They kids come with more than just a plate ah food dehn want. They come with other lee problems, they come sick, they ask for more than that. So I dah like wah ather figure to many of them. Dah like nine years now I di do the feeding program; this year makes nine years and the work continues as long as I got health and strength and god bless. I could have telethon, I got go around and ask fi donation, but god bless me ina dehn way how I could do dehn events and do dehn things fi raise funds. And that’s how I raise my lee funds every six months cause every six months I do wah event. So I just di ask the community come out, support and trust me it gwen to a good cause, cause that dah weh I live for.”

 

The event starts at six p.m. at the Bird’s Isle in Belize City. General admission is only ten dollars.
