Grammy Award ® Winner, Dr. Nancy Wilson, supports Children of the Caribbean Foundation

Children of the Caribbean Foundation, Inc. (“COTC”) is pleased to announce that Grammy Award ® Winner, Musician Dr. Nancy Wilson is now a supporter of Children of the Caribbean Foundation.

 
PRLog - Jul. 4, 2012 - BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Dr. Nancy Wilson was among the honored and celebrity guests at the Children of the Caribbean Foundation’s “Every Child Matters 5K Run/Walk” Pre-Race Reception which was held in Beverly Hills on June 15, 2012.  During an on-camera interview with the Foundation’s Executive Director, Rosie Hodge-Adams, Ms. Wilson expressed her support for the work the Foundation is doing. “I am very proud of the work that you are doing with children across the Caribbean and in Los Angeles”, she said.  “The Children of the Caribbean Foundation has my support.”  Ms. Wilson also pledged to lend assistance whenever possible.

In addition to receiving three Grammy Awards ®, Dr. Nancy Wilson has also received three NAACP Image Awards, the UNCF Trumpet Award, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Dr. Wilson was also the recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Jazz Masters Fellowships Award (2004), the highest honors that the United States Government bestows upon jazz musicians. On May 25, 2012, the prestigious Juilliard School of Music bestowed an Honorary Doctor of Music Degree on Dr. Wilson.  

It is no surprise that Dr. Wilson supports Julien Adams and Rosie Hodge-Adams and the work that they do across the Caribbean with Children of the Caribbean Foundation, because Dr. Wilson is also a humanitarian at heart!  She is the co-founder of the Nancy Wilson Foundation, an organization that introduces inner city children to life in the countryside.

ABOUT Children of the Caribbean
COTC is a registered non-profit organization. Although COTC’s primary mandate is to provide assistance to youth in the Caribbean in the areas of education (supplies and scholarships), health and development, the foundation has realized that there is a great need in many other areas. Accordingly, since then the foundation decided to extend its reach and also provided food and support to homeless children in the Los Angeles area. The Foundation recently hosted its 2nd Annual fundraising event, the “EVERY CHILD MATTERS 5K Run-Walk” at Loyola Marymount University on June 16, 2012. The funds raised at that event will fund programs that support and nurture the lives of underprivileged youth in the Caribbean in the area of education (supplies and scholarships), health and development.
