The St. Andrew Alumnae Association of Washington, D.C. presents its 25th Anniversary Celebration and Summer fundraiser on June 27, 2015.
The association has been instrumental in assisting and contributing to the financial needs of children in Jamaica.
The association has provided scholarships, books, computers, housing, and assistance to Jamaican athletes who participate in the annual Penn relays. The generosity of the Association extends beyond the alma mater (St. Andrew High School), by helping children of other schools in Jamaica.
Over the past 25 years the members of the association and others have relentlessly provided financial support and other means to assist some needy children in Jamaica and have also given tremendous support to other Caribbean organizations. Learn more about the St. Andrew Alumnae Association.
One member of the association sums up the belief of their purpose, “Together as a people from all regions of the Caribbean the success of our forefathers will be carried like a torch that continually burns throughout the world.”
The Washington, D.C. chapter maintains an alumnae membership and its primary mission as a registered non-profit organization is to harness financial support and attract past students of the school to join forces to support the school and its students.
“We strive to promote and support the development of the students while strengthening alumnae commitment and involvement,” one member stated.
This fundraising event will be held at the Laurel/Beltsville Senior Activity Center located at 7120 Contee Road, Laurel, Maryland from 7 pm to Midnight. The cost of admission is $60 per person and includes a Jamaican Buffet. Get more information here
