Free benefit concert featuring Kevin Lyttle, Mikaben and the Tennors to benefit
Relief of the volcano of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

MIRAMAR, FL (Monday, June 14, 2021) – The City of Miramar today announced details for an island-hopping experience that will take place at Shirley Branca Park located at 6900 Miramar Parkway, Miramar, FL 33023 on Saturday, June 19 June 2021, 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The event is part of the city’s month-long celebration of Caribbean American Heritage Month that kicked off June 1, 2021. Guests will be able to roam around the park, which will feature a Caribbean showcase of various islands, while enjoying the art, culture and entertainment of their favorite island.

Miramar Commissioner Maxwell Chambers will host the event and is partnering with Smiley Girl Entertainment and the SAEDINTRA Foundation to organize a free concert to benefit the victims of the eruption of the La Soufrière volcano in Saint-Vincent-et-les Grenadines which took place earlier this year. The eruption forced more than 16,000 people to evacuate while leaving the entire population without drinking water. A donation drive will take place at the event to collect non-perishable and essential items such as water, canned goods and toiletries.

Kevin Lyttle of St. Vincent will headline the concert, which will also include performances by Mikaben of Haiti and the Tennors of Jamaica.

Commissioner Chambers said: “It will be an unforgettable experience and a great opportunity to bring the whole family together to have fun while supporting a great cause. Guests will also be able to easily obtain the COVID-19 vaccine onsite at the park while safely enjoying the sights and sounds of the Caribbean. Don’t forget to bring your flags and represent your country!

The Island-Hopping Experience is free to the public with registration available at www.IslandHoppingExperience.Eventbrite.com. Food, drinks and Caribbean products will be available for sale.
