Filmmaker/producer Will Packer had a helluva birthday celebration for his 40th birthday. The St. Petersburg native took his talents to the Bahamas, throwing a weekend get-away with close friends and family, along with a few actors/actress that have starred in his films (Think Like A Man, Ride Along, About Last Night,etc.). The festivities included a party on a private island, live entertainment and a full Junkanoo band. E!’s Terrence Jenkins and LaLa Anthony gifted Will with a pricey Hublot watch!
Will shared a reflective message about his birthday, writing:
This weekend I was honored and humbled to have an AMAZING group of friends and family to help me CELEBRATE LIFE! The occasion happened to be my 40th B-day but it wasn’t just about me. It was truly a celebration for us all to acknowledge and appreciate each other and the lives we have. No matter who you are I encourage you to LIVE EVERY DAY TO THE FULLEST!!!
