M7 Events, the lifestyle entertainment group that produces events such as Soiree: Christmas Eve, Soiree: SPF, Marbana, and the SPF Weekend series, provided the Portland Rehab Facility in Port Antonio, with food items and bathroom supplies to serve the facility for the holiday season and beyond.

The Portland Rehab facility is mandated by the Portland Parish Council to rehabilitate its residents, who may be suffering from homelessness and mental illnesses such as chronic depression and other related ailments. The administrator of the home, New York City native Andrea Parsons, describes the facility's approach to helping its residents as "wellness self-management, through the mind, body, and soul".

The facility provides shelter and daily meals for its residents.

Chairman of M7 Events Mark Lindo noted the promotion company's decision to engage the facility in a philanthropic partnership:

"This year, M7 Events held its first event in Portland called Marbana, and it was quite a success for our first production in the area. We now see ourselves as long-term partners with the residents of Portland, and will play our part in the Portland Renaissance to bring back the glory days of the parish.

"Portland is a gem that should not be forgotten, and the great work being done by the Portland Rehab Facility should be rewarded and not go unnoticed. We are glad to assist the facility with food and household items. These are basic necessities that no facility which is doing this magnitude of great work, should be in need of," Lindo said.
