SLHTA Gala Dinner

Saint Lucia Hotel & Tourism Association (SLHTA) Partners with The Caribbean Society of Hospitality Executives (CSHAE) on Fundraising Gala

Gros Islet, Saint Lucia (October 23rd, 2017): The month of September often known for staycations and back to school preparations, was nothing short of devastating owing to adverse weather conditions experienced around the world. Small but widespread, the region was not spared the wrath of mother nature with significant damage recorded in many islands with effects still felt two months on, especially in Dominica, Barbuda and the British Virgin Islands. As we heal as one Caribbean Community, the Saint Lucia Hotel & Tourism Authority (SLHTA) in collaboration with the Caribbean Society of Hotel Associations Executives (CHSAE) have joined forces to host a black-tie Gala Fundraiser event slated for Friday 17th November 2017 under the theme ‘Together we are stronger’.

According to Chief Executive of the SLHTA, Mr.  Noorani Azeez, ‘We are impressed with the sense of community and solidarity as residents and businesses of each Caribbean island that has been able to support has done so in some way.’ However, when revealing the plight of some of the citizenry of the hardest hit island nations, he added, ‘More relief effort is needed to ensure our sister islands can recover beyond merely receiving food and water relief, beyond road and housing supplies, but to rebuild stronger better infrastructure which has the power to withstand more harmful disasters in the future’.

The private and public sector are encouraged to support this worthy cause slated for Friday November 17th at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa and Beach Resort. The SLHTA invites the business community to partner in the hosting of the event as well as encourages them to purchase tables of 10. The ticket price is EC$350.00 per person. Proceeds will go to the islands hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The event will be an elegant affair and will include various elements including a cocktail reception, three course plated dinner, an auction where patrons can bid on stays at some of the islands most luxurious properties in Anguilla, Bonaire, the Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos Islands, a classy mix of live entertainment and dancing.

For more information about the event and to purchase tickets, contact the SLHTA’s office or visit their office in Rodney Bay.
