Lighting the Way Together

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 15 th Annual UWI Toronto Benefit Awards which will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at the Ritz Carlton, with Scotiabank as Lead Sponsor for the 15 th consecutive year. Joining us as Patrons are Dr. Donette Chin-Loy Chang, Mr. Andrew Chang and Ms. Brigette Chang. We are also extremely honoured and excited to welcome to the UWI family Mr. Kevin Hibbert and his wife Ann-Marie Hibbert as Patrons and passionate supporters of the UWI Awards and its Student Scholarship Fund.

The UWI Toronto Benefit Awards is a fixture on the Toronto social calendar receiving tremendous support from the corporate sector. Together we have awarded 700 scholarships to aspiring students in dire financial need and honoured extraordinary individuals and organizations. Under the theme: Lighting the Way Together, the 2024 event will demonstrate how together, your donations, financial support and inspiration provide a lifeline/’lightline’ to students eager to fulfil their educational dreams. To quote Nelson Mandela, “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

The 15 th Annual UWI Toronto Benefit Awards promises to be another spectacular occasion and we look forward to seeing you in the beautiful City of Toronto to celebrate once again the very best of the Caribbean.

Best Regards,
Hilary Beckles
