    BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, 26 AUGUST, 2022 -- The excitement is building as the New York-based Sandy Point Benevolent Society finalizes preparation for its 10th Recognition and Awards Banquet. The event is one of the Society’s biggest fundraisers and is a highly anticipated event for nationals in the diaspora.  


    A key feature of this annual event is the recognition of volunteers who give of their time and talent to the organization. Listed among those who will be recognized this year is Coreentje Phipps-Benjamin, a national of St. Kitts and Nevis who grew up in the town of Cayon and now resides in the USA. Described as a strong community activist, she is a founding member of Green Valley Global, a not-for-profit organization founded in 2007.


    President of the Sandy Point Benevolent Society, Stewart Williams made the observation, that  Coreentje’s involvement with the organization is a demonstration of love for country. “We acknowledge that we could not do all the work by ourselves and threw open the door for assistance from like-minded persons. In walked this selfless lady who rolled up her sleeves to assist notwithstanding her involvement in another nonprofit organization- Green Valley Global. It is this willingness to work for a cause that is bigger than self that caught our attention and the eventual nomination of Mrs Phipps-Benjamin,” he explained.


    Another honoree for the September 3rd event is Eloise Herbert. A graduate of the Sandy Point High School now the Charles E Mills Secondary School, Eloise has been the beneficiary of a scholarship from the SPBS. It was this generosity that spurred her to pay it forward and volunteer with the organization in several capacities, including as Secretary and Magazine Coordinator. “I am forever grateful to the SPBS for the assistance that I received for my tertiary studies. To demonstrate that gratefulness, I decided that I will serve the organization and in so doing help to create opportunities for future awardees,” she remarked.  


    “From our first interaction with Eloise, we knew she would be someone who could add value to our organization. She is the embodiment of our mantra “Giving back so others can move forward” – having received assistance from the society and now dedicating her service to benefit others.  Further, she is the creator of the theme for this year’s banquet- Measuring impact and creating opportunities another example of her solid contribution to SPBS,” said President Williams.


    The SPBS is excited about the return of the event this year and looks forward to interacting with its usual patrons and meeting new ones.  Ticket for the events can be purchased online at or from any of its members.
