Thank You

The 2024 UWI Toronto Benefit Awards is now another milestone in our 15-year legacy of supporting the educational dreams of young students across the Caribbean. The event was a resounding success raising over $450,000 that will go towards scholarships and provide a lifeline to financially disadvantaged young people striving to transform their beleaguered lives.

Given the rave reviews received from the patrons, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and media, we can all take pride in this achievement. In keeping with our theme – Lighting the Way Together, thank you for sponsoring the Awards event and the UWI Student Scholarship Fund. You are shining a light on the path to success for so many young people.

In the words of Mary Anne Radmacher, “As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.”

It is my distinct pleasure to announce that the 16 th Annual UWI Toronto Benefit Awards will be held at the Ritz Carlton on April 26 th 2025. I look forward with great anticipation to seeing you there and sharing another remarkable evening.

Best Regards,
Hilary Beckles
Vice Chancellor
