Jamaican Women of Washington, Inc. (JWoW) recently celebrated its 10th Annual Tea-Off to Good Health charity fundraiser and silent auction at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. Founder and President Dr. Jacqueline A. Watson noted that this is also Jamaica’s 50th year of independence. The organization has donated more than $275,000 to charities in Washington, DC, and Jamaica and has brought attention to important public-health and social issues. Washington Channel 7's news anchor Leon Harris served as the master of ceremonies. Entertainment included a dance by Miss Caribbean Metro USA, Stefanie Belnavis, and fashion show highlighting apparel with a Caribbean flair. The group awarded Jamaica's renowned reggae star Orville “Shaggy” Burrell for his outstanding contribution to the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston through the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation.
