Blue Angels watch over terminally ill

A fashion show, a pan soloist, singing, dancing and prize draws, were all parts of the Blue Angels Personal Development Agency’s third annual tea party, which took place on Sunday, May 13 at the Sugar Mill Inn at Ratho Mill.{{more}}

This year the event took on a different air, as the day was dedicated to promoting positive behavioural change.

Dubbed “Hats off to Positive Behavioural Change”, the proceeds from Sunday’s tea party will go to the House of Hope Society, which helps terminally ill persons, especially those living with HIV/AIDS.

Director of Blue Angels, Janine Harry said that the decision to make this year’s event a fundraiser came about when the agency decided to give back to the community.

Harry said that the problem of HIV/AIDS is a serious issue, prompting them to dedicate their receipts to the society, who is planning to build a home for their clients.

The group is also planning a voluntary counseling and testing drive, slated for later this year.

Sunday’s tea party featured a number of activities, including addresses on AIDS related issues, pan music from Rodney Small, modeling from Blue Angels Models and singing by Ronelle Conliffe.

The evening culminated with the release of balloons, symbolizing the dedication of persons attending towards positive behavioural change. (JJ)
