Last Tuesday’s weekly Managers’ Cocktail served as the backdrop for yet another cheque donation by Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa to the St Jude Hospital. During last week’s ceremony the Vice President of Hotel Operations, Mr. Karl Hallberg and personnel of the Coconut Bay Sports & Social Committee, presented a cheque of EC $10, 000 to Dr. Chierry Poyotte, CEO of St Jude Hospital.
Hallberg, in remarks during the ceremony noted: “Here at Coconut Bay, we are fully invested in our community, with the responsibility of being the largest employer in the south of the island. We are proud to be both a good neighbour and a corporate supporter of St. Jude Hospital’s restoration efforts and are gratified to see these donations at work, having a positive impact particularly on Saint Lucia’s children, as well as many of our staff members and their families who receive healthcare from St. Jude Hospital.”
In its continuing efforts to support the local community, Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa has a long-standing relationship with St. Jude’s Hospital — the Pediatric Ward in particular. Material and monetary donations are generated on the hospital’s behalf through philanthropic activities including the weekly ‘Charity Rubber Duck Race’ at the hotel’s CocoLand Waterpark.
Since the Memorandum of Understanding between the resort and hospital was formalized in 2013, Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa, its staff and generous guests have made monetary contributions of over EC $70,000 to St. Jude Hospital.
