On Saturday the 26th of October, we celebrated True Blue Bay Resort’s 15th anniversary. Horizon Yacht Charter’s Grenada Base is located at True Blue Bay Resort.
True Blue invited all their close friends and supporters to come drink, eat and have a good time – Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell was also in attendance. Since Vendomme RC School is such a big part of True Blue Bay Resort, they decided to hold a silent auction to help raise the remaining funds for the schools bathrooms. Prizes included a round trip airline ticket to Miami, a 2 night stay at Maca Bana Villas, 2 night stay at Le Phare Bleu, a Day Sail from Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada, Gift set from Colombian Emeralds and so much more. By the end of the night the auction raised around EC$8000 for the school. True Blue Bay Resort hope to see you at their 20th anniversary party!
