Things Caribbean



The University of the West Indies Fundraising Gala is January 24, 2001, at the New York Marriott Marquis. This special evening - The Legacy Continues - supports UWI's endowment fund which provides scholarships for talented West Indians who cannot afford to attend the University.

Sir Sidney PoitierHarry Belafonte is once again the honorary patron and Sir Sidney Poitier will be on hand to receive the University's prestigious Legacy Award. The Award salutes those individuals who have made significant contributions to the Black Diaspora and raised funds for the University's scholarship programs. Past recipients of the Legacy Award include Dr. Maya Angelou and General Colin Powell (Retd).

As a member of the Gala Committee, and a fellow West Indian, I invite you to join me and support the UWI Gala on Wednesday, January 24, 2001. This is an event you do not want to miss. The evening's events include the induction of the Class of 2001 Caribbean Luminaries. These are individuals who have left their indelible mark on the Caribbean region and the world. The 2001 class of fifteen is: George Lamming (Barbados), Sheila Jackson Lee (Jamaica), Mervyn Dymally (Trinidad & Tobago), Hope Stevens (Barbados), Sir Frank Worrell (Barbados), Herb McKenley (Jamaica), Sir George Alleyne (Barbados), Claude McKay (Jamaica), Geoffrey Holder (Trinidad & Tobago), Eric Williams (Trinidad & Tobago), Malcolm X (Grenada), Patrick Ewing (Jamaica), Susan Taylor (St. Kitts, Nevis), Katherine Dunham (Trinidad & Tobago) and Paule Marshall (Barbados).

Another feature of this hallmark evening will be entertainment from David Rudder, one of today's most entertaining Calypso and Soca performers.

Individual Gala tickets are @$2,500, $1,000 and $500. (UWI Graduates and guests are entitled to $250 reduction.) All contributions in excess of $135. per person, the value of the dinner and entertainment, are tax deductible. Contributions of $500 or more, which are paid by January 3, 2000, will be listed in the Gala souvenir journal. Please call Ron Lammy at 781/477 0768 to make arrangements for reserving your tickets or advertising in the Gala souvenir journal.
