Under the theme “One People, One Nation, Limitless Possibilities,” the St. Lucia House Foundation will present an event-filled independence gala on Saturday.
Ava Baptiste, St. Lucia’s minister of external affairs, international trade and civil aviation will be special guest at the formal affair — which features dinner, a raffle and awards presentation — at Grand Prospect Hall, 263 Prospect Ave. (between Fourth and Fifth Aves.) in Brooklyn, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Musician and philanthropist Taj Weekes will receive the foundation’s Humanitarian Award “for his selflessness and dedicated humanitarian efforts.” Weekes is founder of the They Often Cry Outreach charity, which aids underprivileged Caribbean children through sports, health, and enrichment programs.
