Event description

Description

Join us for a cocktail reception and silent auction benefitting the island of Dominica. Refreshments included with ticket purchase.

The passage of hurricane Maria in mid-September left in its wake unimaginable damage in Dominica. An island which was nicknamed the "Nature Isle" as a tribute to its vast foliage, bountiful fresh produce and over three-hundred rivers. Also known as the bread basket of the region, Dominica sent fresh fruits and vegetables to its neighboring islands, and further abroad on a weekly basis.

Hurricane Maria has completely devastated the landscape of Dominica, 90% of all vegetation has been lost, as well as 90% of the island's physical structures have sustained major damage.The entire Caribbean region is feeling the impact, with notable shortages in fresh produce throughout the islands. We are hosting this event to do our part for the wonderful people of Dominica, who are experiencing loss far beyond what many of us can imagine.

Replanting trees and crops is essential to avoid further flooding, and landslides. Many people who farm the land have relatively small, sole proprietor operations and do not have the resources to purchase seeds necessary to begin cultivating the land again.

Our goal is to raise funds to support agriculture and the purchase of building materials for schools and hospitals.
