Ladera Resort Challenges St. Lucia Businesses
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.

Ladera Resort believes in giving back to communities.
