St. John, Antigua. September 25, 2020 – Antigua’s Ricard Drue will join a line-up of top Caribbean entertainers from around the region who will be part of the first ever Virtual Walk for the Cure and Concert of Hope.
For the first time in the nine-year history of the largest walk for a cause in the Caribbean, there will be no gathering of thousands in pink to raise awareness for the cause of Breast Cancer in Antigua and across the region, as Covid-19 has forced regional bank CIBC FirstCaribbean, to take its flagship fundraiser online.
The bank, through promoter 4D Entertainment, will be producing the regional event on Sunday October 4th that will bring together some 13 regional performers and 2 DJs for a full three hours of entertainment that will include energetic workout sessions from a number of top fitness coaches.
Regional performers include Caribbean Queen of Soca Alison Hinds, Edwin ‘The General” Yearwood, Adrian ‘AC” Clarke and Hypa Dawg Lil Rick, all from Barbados; Mr. Vegas from Jamaica; Mr. Killa from Grenada; Teddyson John from St. Lucia and Julian Believe from the Bahamas. Two performers bringing a different feel to the show will be King James from St. Maarten and Reinir Lijfrock from Curacao.
Viewers will also get to see two very popular regional soca stars namely past Road March winner Patrice Roberts from Trinidad and 2019 St. Vincent Soca Monarch Skinny Fabulous.
Donations can still be made to Ticketlinkz.com
Earlier that day, Sunday 4th October, the Antigua branches of the bank will be hosting Drive for the Cure starting at 12 noon from the Sir Viv Richards Stadium. Interested persons can visit the bank to register.
