Organisers in British Virgin Islands of the annual Junior Minister of Tourism Speech Competition are trying to raise additional funds to rebuild the Eslyn Henley-Richez Learning Centre in John’s Hole.
Events Coordinator at the BVI Tourist Board Cindy Rosan Jones told BVI News on June 5 the event will take the form of a cocktail fundraiser.
It is scheduled for Saturday, June 9 at The Moorings at 5pm.
“We know that the school got damaged in the hurricane and it’s going through its rebuilding process. So we are looking to help with that seeing that this is event has an educational component,” Jones said. According to Rosan Jones, this is the first time that the event will have an admission fee.
