The Latest News
Dear CBA Members and Supporters,
The Caribbean Bar Association's (CBA) thoughts and prayers are with all of those who lost family members, friends, and property due to Hurricane Matthew's devastating impact on the Caribbean and Southeast United States.
In the wake of the devastation, it is imperative that all Caribbean and Caribbean-American citizens and community organizations join in the effort to recover and rebuild. The Executive Board of the CBA has unanimously voted to donate all proceeds received from the Raffle during the upcoming 20th Annual Scholarship Awards Banquet on October 29, 2016, to hurricane relief efforts for Hurricane Matthew through Food for the Poor.
However, the CBA cannot do it alone. In furtherance of this year's initiative to Partner For Progress, we need our members and supporters to partner with us in order to make a meaningful donation to the Hurricane Matthew relief efforts. So what can you do? You, your firm, or your organization can: (i) donate items to the Raffle; (ii) generously participate in the Raffle during the Banquet; and/or (iii) make financial donations to the hurricane relief effort directly through
Food for the Poor, either through their website at https://champions.foodforthepoor.org/fundraise?fcid=796898, or at the Banquet. Any option chosen and any amount donated will have a positive, and much needed impact on the lives of all those affected by Hurricane Matthew.
We look forward to seeing you and your friends, family members and colleagues at our upcoming Banquet on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale. We thank you in advance for your anticipated support and continued generosity toward the CBA scholarship fund, and to the Raffle proceeds to be donated to the Hurricane Matthew relief fund.
Michelle T. Bell, President
