Plot of Land & Trip to Belize on Raffle at Belize Fest

Faron Smith

For the first time, Belize Fest is partnering with the Belize Tourism Board and the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations. Through this partnership the festival will raffle a plot of land in Belize and a round-trip ticket and hotel stay to lucky Belizean attendees. Faron Smith speaks with the media about what the funds will be used for.


Faron Smith, Proprietor, True Belizean

“It is a fundraiser. True Belizean is a non=profit organization and what we do is spread Belizean culture and when we are done doing that, what we do is we give scholarships to children in Belize mostly. We do help out the Belizean community here. It is more of a networking type of something deal that during the festival I bring in a lot of organizations, Belizean businesses and stuff like that. So on that day, you would see that even the staff is all Belizean. The team building, setting up the fence and all – everybody dah Belizean – all the booths are Belizeans. We have a Belizean restaurant on the same street. That restaurant is called Little Belize – they are one of the sponsors and supporters of True Belizean and Belize Fest. We have Smart Enterprises which is my partner. And then we have a whole lot of other nonprofits where they are doing work in Belize – they send stuff, they go down and work and do all these things.”


Belize Fest takes place on September eleventh and eighteenth.
