Special Dinner to raise money for Youth Sailing in Antigua

So many people in Antigua complain about the youth of our nation and how so many are going down wrong paths. Some people just don't talk. Some people try to do something about the common problem. One of these people is Pippa who runs the Jolly Harbour Youth Sailing Program. Youth from around Antigua can come and take part in this amazing program and be taught how to sail by some very qualified instructors.
To do this properly the program needs plenty of help and not just in terms of man/woman hours, the program also needs money. Personally, I don't think there are many programs in Antigua that can open up opportunities for young kids like the island's two sailing programs.
The one in Jolly Harbour needs your help and Angie at Al Porto has offered to give them a huge boost by putting on a special dinner for them. The food is very good with one of Antigua's best Italian chefs now running the show there, and if you come and enjoy the lovely dinner there on the 28th of August, you will be helping the sailing program and Antigua's youth.
