Group Heads further north to raise Funds for Kidney Relief

The Caribbean-American Renal Failure Relief Fund, formerly the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Renal Failure Relief Fund, heads north to Canada this weekend in raising much-needed funds for Vincentian kidney patients.

The group, the brainchild of New York Consul General Cosmus Cozier, stages a gospel concert on Sunday, May 27, at 4:00 p.m., at the Church of Nativity, 10 Sewell Rd., Scarborough, Ontario.

Trinidadian-born, McDonald Fest Gospel Winner Gerard Placide will headline the event, which includes, among others, Vincentian artistes Ellsworth Quammie, formerly calypsonian “Life Boy;” pannist Vin Cato; saxophonist Syl McIntosh; and Gems and Friends, a Toronto-based, Girls’ High School alumnae steel band.
