“We also remain thankful to the many businesses around the island that have remained committed to this huge event and encourage them to partake once more as we finalize preparations for the Lion Wally Havertong Christmas Bingo Spectacular on December 3. It will remain an activity that the entire family can enjoy. We also ask that businesses on the island remain a partner by donating gift vouchers, purchasing of tickets for their employees and sponsoring of overloaded Christmas baskets that the public can enjoy during the holiday period.

It is an exciting and rewarding activity for St. Maarten Lions Club and we know that above all that it is for worthy causes while at the same time brings businesses and the community at large together for one common cause – a call to service towards enhancing our St. Maarten Community,” Club President Woods stated.
