On Saturday, July 17, 2010, the Caribbean and Floridian Association, Inc (CAFA) will be hosting a Black Tie event in honor of our 20th Anniversary celebration. We plan to take this opportunity to showcase the rich heritage of the Caribbean.
This event will be attended by members of the US Congressional delegation, Florida State and Local Officials, members of the CARICOM Diplomatic Corp, and other distinguished guests. We believe that, as an organization charged with the mandate to preserve and promote our unique culture; we must work diligently to showcase the very aspects that make us proud Caribbean/Americans.
CAFA was established in July 1990 as a community based organization, to encourage kinship between Caribbean and other communities in Florida, and to maintain an association of high standards that promotes cultural awareness that contributes to the development of Central Florida. To open and maintain avenues of communication between peoples of the Caribbean and other ethnic groups and their homelands, and to foster educational, cultural, and business opportunities through networking, to further joint interests. We are certified as a 501(C) 3 public charity organization registered with the State of Florida. Since its inception, CAFA has contributed to many worthwhile causes including a continuing annual scholarship awards' program to high school graduates since 1992.
This year’s Black Tie event will highlight our accomplishments over the past 20 years, and will recognize several individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the Caribbean/American community in Central Florida. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit our annual scholarship fund and provide support to our medical committee community outreach mission aimed at improving wellness care.
We need you to join us as we strive to assist others. We invite you to attend our 20th Anniversary Black Tie event at the Doubletree Resort located at 10100 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32821 on Saturday, July 17, 2010.
CAFA will produce a Souvenir Journal that will provide a summary of our activities, a calendar of upcoming events, information on the Caribbean, and a list of our sponsors and advertisements from local businesses. Copies of the journal will be available for distribution to all attending guests, sponsors and supporters.
You’re invited to contribute prizes, coupons and products to our silent auction. These gifts will be a part of the silent auction held during the Cocktail Hour. PROMOTE YOUR PRODUCTS & SERVICES!!
SPONSORSHIP CATEGORIES AND SOUVENIR JOURNAL ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE!! PLEASE CONTACT US FOR RATES AND MORE INFORMATION.
Your support of this event will contribute significantly to projecting a positive image of CAFA and Caribbean/Americans to the community in Central Florida.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN GROW AND ACCOMPLISH EVEN MORE....
