Event description

Description

THIS IS AN OFFICIAL RELIEF EFFORT BEING CONDUCTED BY THE NEW YORK OFFICES OF THE GOVERNMENT OF ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA.

100% of the proceeds of this fundraising drive will go towards official Barbuda Hurricane Relief Funds.

The Independence Gala is an annual event that commemorates Antigua and Barbuda’s Independence Day. It is the largest and most celebrated national event outside of Antigua, attracting guests from all over the US and special guests from all over the world.

Initial assessments indicate that 95% of the infrastructure has been significantly damaged or destroyed. Schools, hospitals, and all other vital services have been devastated. Prime Minister Gaston Browne estimates damages to be in the range of US-$ 200M. In addition to the reconstruction needs, long term consequences are expected to be serious, as tourism, the major hard currency earner, will most likely lose almost a complete winter season

Come experience a taste of Antigua and Barbuda at the gala which promises to be a glamorous and lively evening. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on travel and hotel packages to Antigua and Barbuda and mingle with like-minded professionals, all while raising funds for Barbuda in true Caribbean style and flair.
