Basseterre, St. Kitts (March 9, 2018) – On Wednesday, March 7, St. Kitts’ Minister of Tourism The Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant valiantly competed in a table tennis challenge to raise funds for the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Foundation. The table tennis challenge took place during the Seatrade Global Conference 2018, held in Fort Lauderdale.
“It was a pleasure to participate in an event that continues to raise funds for the FCCA Foundation of which St. Kitts is a beneficiary,” Minister Grant said. “Every December, the FCCA Holiday Giveaway Project donates hundreds of toys to our children on island who are less fortunate.”
Adam Goldstein, Chairman of the FCCA, competed against the gold sponsors of the challenge, concluding with the main match against Minister Grant. This is the second time Minister Grant has participated in the event, having beaten an undefeated Goldstein at an FCCA conference in San Juan in 2016. This time, an extremely focused Goldstein, who is also the President and Chief Operating Officer of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, defeated the Minister in the table tennis challenge.
Minister Grant thanked the FCCA for their continued support of the Caribbean community. St. Kitts Tourism Authority sponsored the table tennis event at a platinum level. 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 with a special appearance by Santa Claus.
