BENEFIT FOR CARIBBEAN MEDICAL AID
Easing the pain and suffering of Caribbean Americans affected by HIV/AIDS is the goal of the Caribbean American Outreach Association, which is holding its annual fund-raising, dinner-dance and awards ceremony on Nov. 9 in Queens, New York.
The affair, which will be held at the Hilton Hotel-JFK International Airport, also features a fashion show and a raffle.
This year’s benefit will aid the Mustard Seed Community’s Dare to Care HIV/AIDS Program in Jamaica, the CAOA scholarship fund and the group’s 2014 medical mission to the Caribbean.
