Caribbean foundation to hold top notch London event




The non-profit Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) Education Foundation - responsible for awarding more than US$1.4 million in scholarships to deserving Caribbean youth since its inception - has launched a new fundraising event in London.

Taking place on March 10, the event will be hosted at the Wallace Collection, an historic townhouse and home to one of the greatest private art collections in the world.

The event is aimed at Caribbean hoteliers who wish to thank their long-standing and highly cherished repeat guests.

A champagne reception will take place in the Great Gallery, where guests will enjoy the music of Trio Mestizo whilst taking in the beauty of such famous paintings as Frans Hals' Laughing Cavalier.

Dinner takes place in the elegant Courtyard, where guests will enjoy further entertainment and the opportunity to bid for an array of 'money-can't-buy' auction items.

"Many of CHTA's luxury hotel members have very close relationships with affluent and celebrity guests who return year after year. Now is the chance to thank them, and for them to really make a difference to the young people of the Caribbean by donating much-needed scholarship funds through the auction," said Tom Pas, chairman for the Education Foundation.

Funds raised on the evening will be split 60%/40% across the Foundation and the affliliated Haiti Relief Fund, which has already successfully educated 23 young Haitians through a variety of hospitality-related courses. These are young people who lost everything and everyone they know and love (including their hospitality school) in the 2010 earthquake.

Auction items will include signed sports memorabila, 'red letter day' experiences, unique travel opportunities and much more.

Sponsors include world-class brands such as Henkell, Angostura, Jamaica Tourist Board and Virgin Holidays.

Parties interested in attending or sponsoring the event should contact Nadine Rankin at nadine@amgltd.biz.
