ST. EUSTATIUS–A special Mass was held for Golden Rock Cancer Awareness Foundation (GRCAF) at the Roman Catholic Church. Sunday’s church service, officiated by Father Simon Wilson, was held in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“Our goal is to bring awareness to the general public and encourage them to go and get their breasts examined, because we promote prevention,” said GRCAF secretary Reina Lijfrock.
The Catholic Angels performed during Mass under the leadership of Serenity Vocal Ensembles (SVE) members Maryteresse “Liesje” Lijfrock-Redan, Zita Peters-Suares, Edna Williams and Maxine Spanner-Suares.
GRCAF donated soup to the attendees after Mass. The foundation will also be present with a booth at Taste of Culture in Mike van Putten Youth Centre (Lion’s Den) on Thursday, starting at 6:00pm.
Visitors to Taste of Culture are being asked to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Month. The line-up for the evening will feature presentations by Daughters of the King, Mega D Youth Foundation and GVP Dancers, as well as a raffle with prizes.
There will be 17 booths at Thursday’s event, where persons can sample many delicious dishes prepared by a host of nations.
