St. Maarten – Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams attended the Top Promotions Foundation cocktail evening at the Rock House in Port de Plaisance last weekend. The event was a fundraiser for the Week of Awareness for the disabled that will take place from November 23 to December 2.
The PM said the event will have a positive spinoff for disabled citizens who will have the opportunity to experience the strength and special talents many disabled people possess. The wheelchair tennis participants will demonstrate this during the international tournament that will be held during the week.
“I would like to commend the Top Promotions Foundation for the excellent job you have done for the disabled on our island. This event is dear to me due to the memory of two of my siblings who passed away in 2010 and 2011 because of a very rare disease which caused them to be disabled during the last part of their lives. Before they passed away they were able to have a good quality of life because of the care of the Sister Basilia Center and the caregivers that work there. I encourage St. Maarten to continue to support the activities of the Be Able Committee of the Top Promotions Foundation,” the Prime Minister said.
Minister of Education, Culture, Sports and Youth Affairs Silveria Jacobs also attended the event.
