BELIZE CITY, Mon. July 27, 2015–Long time Belize City sports entrepreneur/activist Edward Charles Rubio, a.k.a. Lilly White, visited our sports desk last Wednesday to promote his “Lilly White Kids Summer Camp 2015 for children ages 5-12 years,” which kicked off on June 30 and runs until August 30 at BTL Park. The camp is active daily from Monday to Friday, running from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Lilly White says he has been sustaining the camp through the meager resources from his car wash project on Barracks Road, but “I am presently in need of funding, as I have not received any assistance from the Government of Belize through the PetroCaribe funds…” He insists that his application forms were all filled out and delivered to the Sports Council office according to the reported guidelines, but so far he has received “no love” from Government’s “Summer Sports” assistance program.
In his plea to the public and firms/businesses, Lilly White asks “if you could donate some water or juice or rice, beans or anything that could help with my Summer Camp 2015. I have a total of 36 kids that attend Lilly White Kids Summer Camp 2015, so, please support my kids; and let’s teach them to do the great things in life – LOVE, RESPECT and UNDERSTANDING, for themselves and others.”
Lilly White can be contacted at #84 Barrack Road or cell #667-9672.
