Join the Lynne Mitchell Foundation for an evening of philanthropic fun. Funds raised will directly benefit the children of Seaview Primary School in Southfield, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. The foundation’s goal is to renovate the 53-year-old one room schoolhouse for children in grades 1-6 into a new facility with real classrooms, a computer lab, library, and cafeteria. To date, the foundation has implemented transportation programs and school lunch programs for the children. They also recently sent 180 backpacks full of school supplies to Seaview and awarded $2,500 scholarships each to two promising students so they may attend high school in the fall. The foundation also shipped and installed an outdoor playground for the students attending Seaview Infant School.
“Lynne Mitchell dedicated her life to making a positive difference in other people’s lives,” says Marlene Gordon, president of the Lynne Mitchell Foundation. “We hope the ‘Night Under the Stars’ gala will help continue her legacy of showing love to the children in this very poor and rural community in Jamaica and significantly help improve their lives and future potential by providing them a better education.”
The cocktail reception begins at 8:00 PM with hors d'oeuvres, spectacular featured cocktails sponsored by BACARDI®, fabulous raffle and auction items, and continues with dinner and dancing into the evening.

The specific focus of the foundation is on Seaview Primary school with the aim of showing these children what love is and changing their lives in a positive and meaningful way.
