This week we said farewell to an important volunteer, Michael Henry, who is leaving the organization to pursue his MBA at Pepperdine University in California. Michael has been with ICA for over 4 years. During this period, he devoted hundreds of hours of his personal time to help the organization and our community with fundraising, with program development, social media and our newsletter. He also made a lasting impact on our community and with the people he built lasting relationships with. Like all of us, he wore many hats and was always willing to help in any way.
We wish him the best of luck on the West Coast and we will continue the work he started at ICA.
This year's gala host is actress Rhona Fox who hails from Guyana. Rhona has appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC), Ugly Betty (ABC), The Good Wife (CBS), Royal Pains (USA), and has worked as a stand-in for Hollywood's top Indian actresses, like Mindy Kaling, on The Mindy Project (FOX). Rhona's career also includes news production, music media-marketing representing clients such as Pitbull, Lil Jon and Shaggy, and appearing in the Roc-A-Wear 10th anniversary commercial and in an iPod crossbranding promotion for the syndication of Seinfeld on FOX.
"It's an honor to participate in the Indo-Caribbean Alliance's third annual gala, as they raise funds to continue providing programs, resources and aid to our community here in the United States" states Rhona Fox.
In June 2013, Rhona received The Rising Sun Award at the Caribbean Heritage Organization's Tribute to Hollywood & The Arts Gala in Universal City, California, where she was recognized as an emerging actor of Caribbean heritage.
