Paradise Plates to come Aliv
In an effort to continue expanding its corporate responsibilities, Aliv, The Bahamas’ newest mobile network, has made a significant donation and is a presenting sponsor for Paradise Plates 2017. Paradise Plates is in its eighth year and is hosted by the Hands for Hunger organization, a non-profit humanitarian organization focused on eliminating unnecessary hunger and significantly reducing food waste, through the creation of meaningful and engaging partnerships formed among all sectors of the Bahamian community.
According to the Hands for Hunger website, its initiation was “founded on the critical realization that an incredible amount of edible food is thrown away every single day by restaurants, hotels, cruise ships, markets, bakeries and other local vendors.”
“Aliv will continue to fasten its increasing commitment to the people of The Bahamas. A key part of the Aliv brand encompasses creating meaningful experiences not only for customers, but also for those in our communities. This marks a shared effort to grant every man, woman and child three nutritious meals a day through Hands for Hunger,” Aliv Events and Sponsorship Manager Bianca Bethel-Sawyer said.
Hands for Hunger Executive Director Zeleka Knowles said she is grateful for the donation from Aliv and hopes for continued support from the company in the future.
“The most fulfilling part about planning Paradise Plates is the amount of support Hands for Hunger receives,” she said. “Our partnership with Aliv is exemplary. Aliv has proven to be dependable, they care about our mission and they invest in our programs, even beyond this one event. Partnerships like the one we have with Aliv will leave a lasting impact in the community and will inch us closer to a hunger-free Bahamas.”
Paradise Plates is the largest fundraiser for Hands for Hunger and is a unique evening of gourmet food, wine, beer and cocktail tastings, complemented by an assortment of live entertainment, a thrilling live and silent auction and a raffle.
Paradise Plates is scheduled for September 30 at the Atlantis Grand Ballroom, Paradise Island. Doors open at 7 p.m.
