Pawa­sol Quiz Night Raises $12,000 for Char­ity

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Pawa­sol Pour Ti Ma­mai, a char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­vides as­sis­tance to chil­dren with med­i­cal and ed­u­ca­tional needs, held its an­nual quiz night on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 28 at Raz­mataz restau­rant. The event was hosted by Mrs. Sue Wright and staff of the es­tab­lish­ment.

The Pawa­sol ladies did a fine job of pro­vid­ing the ques­tions and col­lect­ing prizes for the raf­fle and, from all ac­counts, the full house sup­port­ers had a fun night and raised ap­prox­i­mately $12,000.

In the ten years since the char­ity was reg­is­tered, its mem­bers are proud of the fact that they have been able to raise over EC$600,000. Ev­ery cent has helped hun­dreds of chil­dren to at­tend school, by pro­vid­ing school­books, fees, trans­port, lunches or uni­form; or by as­sist­ing with medicine, sur­gi­cal fees or air­fares to a re­quired hospi­tal.

Monies are raised through spon­sored walks, pop-up shops, cal­en­dars and cook­book sales and quiz evenings. Pawa­sol has ex­pressed thanks to spon­sors, and to all who at­tended Tues­day night’s ses­sion, and looks for­ward to fur­ther pub­lic sup­port.
