On the evening of April 29 in Toronto, the University of the West Indies hosted the 14th edition of their Benefit Awards, a gathering has raised over $3-million since its inception and awarded more than 800 scholarships. The gala was also a chance to celebrate the school’s 75th anniversary and honour business leaders and philanthropists who have contributed to its success. UWI is regularly ranked among the world’s best schools, with nearly 50,000 students studying across its five campuses, among them Mona in Jamaica and Cave Hill in Barbados. Four hundred and fifty guests attended the sold out gathering, which kicked off with cocktails, followed by dinner, before the awards ceremony.
