Clare Sr, Managing Director of Caribbean Immigrant Services Inc; the promoters of Irie Jamboree, North America's reggae festival: Bobby Clarke, Steven Williams, Louis Grant and Michael Williams; Herman Hall, Publisher of Everybody's Caribbean American Magazine and Ninaj Raoul, co-founder of the Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees (HWHR) were honoured by the Queens Economic Development Corporation (QEDC) in affiliation with the New York METS, at the second annual Caribbean Night at Shea at the Shea Stadium in Queens, New York, just before the METS vs Atlanta Braves game, for being outstanding Caribbean community leaders.

The honourees who were in attendance thanked the QEDC for its efforts to integrate the people of the Caribbean into activities that will contribute to the economic development of the borough of Queens, and will seek to use this relationship and recognition as leverage for a more fundamental and economically viable opportunity.

Caribbean Night at Shea is an initiative between the Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall and the Queens Economic Development Corporation (QEDC) to connect the Caribbean business community in Queens, with resources that will allow their business to flourish by providing assistance to large and small businesses by creating partnerships with businesses and groups that assist businesses.

The pre-game performance by Jamaican entertainer, Richie Stephens, Higher Levin Steel Band Orchestra and New York's up and coming star Elvis D was well received by the spectators in attendance for the game.
