Description

The Embassy of Barbados in partnership with the Barbados Association of Washington, DC Area Inc. is pleased to announce the culmination of a year long celebration of Barbados’ 50th Anniversary of Independence with the Spirit of Barbados Gala, commemorating our past and celebrating our future. The Spirit of Barbados Gala is an opportunity to honour those who have made positive contributions to Barbados and the Caribbean Region, while highlighting and celebrating the uniqueness and best of the small but exceptional nation of Barbados. The event will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at the Organization of American States in Washington DC.

Proceeds from the event will go towards supporting the work of the Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF) and its Student Program for Innovation in Science and Engineering (SPISE). The mission of the Foundation is to assist with the diversification of the economies of the Caribbean Region by harnessing science and technology for economic development, and to help raise the standard of living”. SPISE provides a residential summer enrichment opportunity for high school students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Members of the diplomatic community, leaders from government, business and academia, and members of the Barbadian and Caribbean Diaspora will attend and participate in the Spirit of Barbados Gala. This year’s signature event will include international cuisine prepared by award winning chefs from Barbados, as well as live entertainment from renowned Barbadian and Caribbean artistes.
