THE SUNSHINE AWARDS PROGRAM WAS FOUNDED IN 1989 BY GILMAN T. FIGARO, SR. TO RECOGNIZE AND REWARD EXCELLENCE IN THE PERFORMING ARTS, EDUCATION, HUMANITY, SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND SPORTS IN THE VARIOUS CARIBBEAN COUNTRIES. OVER THE YEARS, THE PROGRAM HAS EXPANDED IN SCOPE, DEPTH AND BREADTH, WITH A GLOBAL VIEW TO INCLUDE COUNTRIES FROM AFRICA, EUROPE, CENTRAL AMERICA, SOUTH AMERICA, AND INDIA.
The 32nd Annual SUNSHINE Awards Program Cancelled
The Leadership Team of The SUNSHINE Awards Organization believes that staging the 32nd Annual SUNSHINE Awards Program this year on Saturday October 17, as planned, would be putting our guests and supporters at risk of contracting the Coronavirus. In addition, complying with the state’s requirements for temperature check, face mask, audience numerical limitation and social distancing at all social events may be unsettling for some guests. As a result, our organization has decided to cancel the 32nd Annual SUNSHINE Awards Program as our foremost commitment is the health and safety of our guests and supporters.
