ST. EUSTATIUS–Thursday’s edition of Taste of the Cultures at Mike van Putten Youth Centre/Lion’s Den was all about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The culinary event, however, still featured many delicious dishes from various nations around the world.
Taste of the Cultures event is a collaboration between St. Eustatius Tourism Development Foundation (STDF) and St. Eustatius Business Association (STEBA). Golden Rock Cancer Awareness Foundation (GRCAF) was also represented with a booth. GRCAF held a raffle with prizes given out to lucky winners Suzy Patrick and Moveda Douglas.
Many visitors to the event wore pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many booth holders also showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Night by either wearing pink clothes or by displaying pledges of their support.
The entertainment for the night included the Daughters of the King dancers. Mega D Youth Foundation’s after-school programme presented young Elizabeth Courtar who sang “I Look to You” and the GVP dancers performed a modern dance. All performers received a resounding applause.
