BASSETERRE (29th September, 2016): Minister of Tourism, The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant defeated Adam Goldstein, who is the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., in a table tennis challenge, to raise awareness of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Charity Foundation.
The FCCA Foundation Table Top Tennis Challenge, took place Wednesday night at the 23rd Annual FCCA Cruise Conference & Trade Show, which is taking place San Juan, Puerto Rico.
It was an impressive victory for Minister Grant, particularly since Mr. Goldstein had not been defeated in the last three years of the challenge.
“It was indeed a pleasure to participate in this meaningful challenge to support the FCCA Foundation,” Minister Grant said. “Giving gifts to children out of love is immeasurable. I would like to thank the FCCA for their continued support in our community and trust that our relationship will continue to be fruitful in the years to come.”
The FCCA Foundation for the Caribbean provides a tangible mechanism for the cruise industry to fund humanitarian causes and help to improve the lives of the Caribbean people most in need. Every year during the holiday season, St. Kitts receives more than 150 gifts from the FCCA charity.
The gifts are distributed to underprivileged children in a special event hosted by the Ministry of Tourism and the St Kitts Tourism Authority, and with a special appearance by Santa Clause.
