The 2016 National Carnival Queen Show contestants have yet to gain sponsorship based on a recent report by Dominica News Online on Thursday, January 14th, 2016. In response to a request by one of this year’s Carnival Queen contestants, Rebuild Dominica has announced its support in the form of an online fundraiser. As the island works toward post-Tropical Storm Erika recovery, one thing is certain: the spirit of The Nature Isle of the Caribbean will not falter. The National Carnival Queen show is still scheduled for February 5th.
Rebuild Dominica is a non-profit based in the Washington DC metro area urging members of the diaspora and supporters of Dominica’s recovery efforts to donate generously to help meet the goal of $5,500 USD. This goodwill effort paired with the dedication of the Dominica Festivals Committee (DFC) and the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) only further demonstrates Dominica’s resilience.
This year’s contestants are Tasia Floissac (22 – Castle Comfort); Abigail Shillingford (19 – Goodwill); Britney Pharoah (22 – Grandbay); Nawana Shillingford (25 – Loubiere); Mernel Christmas (19 – Campbell) and Judy Toussaint (20 – San Sauveur).
The Commonwealth of Dominica’s National Carnival Queen Show provides a glimpse at the talent and beauty of The Nature Isle’s women. It is the highlight of Carnival. Through this fundraiser, Rebuild Dominica seeks to rally supporters of this national event.
Donations will be accepted from Monday, January 18, 2016 to Monday, January 25, 2016.
