The Kiwanis Club of Bridgetown Young Professionals hosted a fundraising event in Jubilee Gardens, The City, on Saturday. The event, under the theme We Kan For the Kids, sought to raise funds for the children impacted by recent hurricanes.
“Today we are focusing on the children of Dominica and the region who were affected by Hurricanes Maria and Irma. As part of our efforts at the district level we are looking to raise CAD$150,000 to reach persons affected by hurricanes in the last few months,” President Rashad Brathwaite said.
“We know that schools are now reopening in Dominica and we know that the needs of children are very unique and are often forgotten. So, we have decided that as Kiwanis, our mission and our goal is to help children,” Brathwaite added.
The fundraising drive which started around 2 p.m. featured Anderson “Mr Blood” Armstrong who sang his song Foot on Fire and encouraged persons to donate to the cause. (LG)
