Ladera Re­sort Chal­lenges St. Lu­cia Busi­nesses

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LO­CAL -

Ladera Re­sort, the orig­i­nal open-air lux­ury re­treat, has is­sued a chal­lenge to all busi­nesses in Saint Lu­cia to sup­port char­i­ta­ble en­deav­ours here at home.

“We be­lieve strongly in char­ity and giv­ing back to our communities, which is why our Good Works Group has, for many years, sup­ported ed­u­cat­ing chil­dren, feed­ing the hun­gry and strength­en­ing the abil­ity of our re­li­gious in­sti­tu­tions to pro­vide for those in need,” said Ralph Hooper, founder and owner of Ladera. “It is just the right thing to do.”

Ladera has com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a match­ing grant to the Par­ish of Our Lady of The As­sump­tion in Soufriere to carry out vi­tal and es­sen­tial re­pairs to the church and pres­bytery. Ladera will con­trib­ute up to $30,000 to help per­form these re­pairs, based on the monies do­nated by any and all busi­nesses on island.

From now through July 15th, for ev­ery dol­lar do­nated to the Par­ish by Saint Lu­cia busi­nesses, Ladera will do­nate two dol­lars. So if a busi­ness chooses to give $5,000, Ladera will do­nate $10,000. That way the to­tal amount is much greater be­cause of joint par­tic­i­pa­tion in the project.

“We hope and pray that this chal­lenge to the busi­ness com­mu­nity of Saint Lu­cia will en­able the Par­ish to raise a lot of money,” ex­plained Holly Scott of Ladera. “The to­tal amount raised will de­pend on the gen­eros­ity of many busi­ness lead­ers, all of whom will be blessed.”

Dona­tions should be made to the Par­ish of Our Lady of The As­sump­tion. P.O. Box 205, Soufriere. Tel: 758 459-7214.

For ques­tions, please con­tact Holly Scott at 758 285-9325.

Ladera Re­sort be­lieves in giv­ing back to communities.
