There was super support for the Red, White and Gold Gala of the Turks and Caicos Islands Red Cross.
Patron of the Red Cross, Jill Beckingham, the Governor’s wife was thrilled at the turn out Saturday evening and shared that this fundraiser is key to helping anchor projects and services from the organization in the event of any disaster; it becomes particularly important as we near the start of another Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Deputy Premier, Hon Akierra Missick was also in attendance and agreed. DP Missick said that Government sees the Red Cross as an easily mobilized partner and protector of the vulnerable when disaster strikes; she said this is one of the reasons TCIG sees it fit to financially support the Red Cross via subsidy.
The ball was held at the Palms Resort and featured a first class show by local singer, Tess Charles.
