This collaborative effort is the initiative of concerned members of the Caribbean community who are responding to not only the physical devastation of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on the 12th of January 2010 but also to the cultural and economic losses. Our goal is to supply 1000 backpacks filled with school supplies (composition books, coloring books, literature, pencils, pens, rulers, compasses, crayons, calculators, etc.)

ACES MUSEUM has come on board to provide it’s EEP – Educational Enhancement Program as an option for youth to learn. Science based modules build intelligence as A.V. Hankins MD, FACP, an Alpha Omega Alpha medical honors recipient for their process of teaching, has used this program to provide the youth at the Youth Study Center (Juvenile Jail) an 85% learning rate.

Thirdly, the Miss Caribbean US Scholarship Pageant is celebrating 10 years of service in the community. Our contestants represent various countries and islands in the Caribbean and are participating in higher learning or preparing for it. Your support is needed to allow these young ladies the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and leave an imprint on society leading to a progressive community.

Dinner will be provided by Top Haitian Chef in collaboration with the Culinary Arts Institute of Philadelphia.

This event is supported by the Philadelphia City Council & PA State Representatives
