Unlike the "typical" sip and shop, this fun and informative soiree will focus primarily on breast cancer and its effects on the young black and latina community but with a Caribbean twist!!

Ms. Grenada USA 2017 will be presenting a " Cancer Slayer" award to a breast cancer survivor that embodies what it means to "Slay Cancer".
A portion of the proceeds will be given to cancer centers devastated or affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico.
The program will feature live models(wearing 2017 mas band camp carnival costumes AND premiere pieces from the 'Slay Cancer' fall line) and live entertainment from one of the hottest new FEMALE soca artists out of Grenada,' Nasale' (who has family members affected by breast cancer) alongside the 'Soca Zoe' himself 'DJ Jeff D' spinning the best reggae, soca, zouk, and bachata as well as hip hop, r&b and pop hits!!! A personalized photo booth and props will be in the building to capture good times and memories. Healthy, Caribbean-inspired finger foods and natural juices specifically soursop (Caribbean fruit) infused drinks-for its proven natural cancer killer elements will be available for patrons to sip on while they shop and fête( party). And speaking of shopping, the Slay Cancer fall line will finally be unveiled and available for purchase for Cancer Slayers, Cancer Supporters or in remembrance of our fallen angels.
