Screen_Shot_2016-05-09_at_8.02.41_PMOn Friday the Crystal Palace Auditorium came to life as hundreds of Orange Walkenos came out for the 2016 Zumba Invasion dance party. As we reported, the event was organized with the main objective being to raise funds to offer assistance to the Orange Walk Cancer Support Group. Today, organizers of the event proudly handed over a check amounting to five thousand two hundred and eleven dollars to the president of the Orange Walk Cancer support group, Badhra Coleman, who expressed her immense gratitude at the generous donation that will greatly assist many individuals who are currently in the fight against cancer.

“I am very happy that Margie and Divas Under Construction took out this time to do this fund raising for us and you know that every little bit counts and five thousand dollars is a lot and it is going to go a long way with our patients.”

“How will this money be used with your group?”


Badhra Coleman- President- Cancer Support group


“Well, what we do we help the cancer patients to be able to access treatment so this will go a long way with some people that right now they are in need for some CT Scans and Biopsy and we are glad that we will be able to help them.”


And according to organizer of the event, Margie Rivas Ayuso, Zumba Invasion would not have been possible without the overwhelming support that was shown on Friday which greatly surpassed her expectations.

Margie Rivas Ayuso – Organizer


“Extremely satisfied, the place was full and everyone was having fun and they tell us it was a complete success so we are happy

The hope of the group is to make this event an annual one and to be able to assist many more organizations who represent a worthy and noble cause such as the Cancer support group.


Margie Rivas Ayuso – Organizer


“It gives us pride and joy to have been able to put together such a successful event and we couldn’t have done without the Orange Walk community and everyone who assisted and help that was there, we are extremely happy with the results and that we have presented the result of the event and it was an amazing result and we are going to present $5211.00 after expenses which was beyond what we were expecting to do and again we want to thank everybody who assisted and we are hoping to do it an annual event and hoping to not help only the cancer support group but also help somebody else.”


And of course the success of Friday’s event could not have been possible without the assistance of the Orange Walk business community and as such the group extended a warm thank you to all who made the event possible.
