10th Annual Virgin Island Billfish Tournament for Haiti



Caribbean Rose has made the difficult decision to cancel the 10th Annual Virgin Island Billfish Tournament for Haiti, scheduled to take place on August 1 - 2, 2020. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially classified COVID-19 as a global pandemic. Countries around the world took drastic measures to slow the spread of the virus. Including shelter-in-place programs, work from home initiatives, social distancing, wearing protective masks, etc.

Caribbean Rose would like to thank everyone that has supported us in the past. Including students and staff at the Ensemble Scolaire Pere Basile Moreau School in Port au Prince Haiti and the Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School on St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands. We hope to have your continued support in 2021 and beyond. Thanks to your donations, the Pere Basile Moreau Middle School was rebuilt after the devastating 2010 earthquake hit the region. We also work to improve and expand literacy programs and construct new learning environments for faculty and staff. With the new and repaired facilities, and enhanced academic resources through investments in technology, health services, and other areas, there continues to be a great demand for admission. The leadership hopes to meet that demand and grow enrollment to further serve the local needy communities, where education is a beacon for a better future for the children and all of Haiti.

Locally the Haiti Tournament also contributes funding to ensure that programs such as the Remedial Reading Program with a reading component for English as a Second Language are available to our Virgin Island students through Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School. Many students using this program had struggled in previous years, but after working with the program became some of the top students at promotional exercises.

We look forward to your continued support. The tournament may have been canceled for this year, but we are still accepting donations . Any donations no matter how large or small will be greatly appreciated. Donations this year will be especially appreciated in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
