Each year, DARDA sponsors a bus outing to a local casino - in prior years, Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut or Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Tickets include refreshments and music on the bus plus a casino bonus of $10 towards food & $10 in slot cash. Pick-up locations include Queens and The Bronx, New York.
For more information on our upcoming casino bus outing, contact us at DARDA@darda.org.
In memory of the late Agatha "Bam" Shillingford, DARDA has implemented a Scholarship Fund for students in Dominica - helping to defray the cost of tuition, books, transportation, uniforms, and other expenses associated with extra-curricular activities.
Committed to promoting literacy and education in Dominica, DARDA has developed an annual School Supply Drive targeting schools in underprivileged villages throughout Dominica. DARDA will select a number of students and provide each one with a book bag filled with school supplies for the entire school year.
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE
DARDA’s annual Toy Drive is a continuous effort by Dominicans living in America to bring the joy of Christmas to less fortunate children of the island of Dominica.
Toys are collected each year and shipped to the island at Christmastime to be distributed among the poor villages.
The National Day Celebration is an event where family and friends come together in a great cultural experience to enjoy music, traditional dances, stories and our national dress. This celebration helps to promote a greater understanding of Dominica's rich heritage. Proceeds from the celebration benefit various needy causes in Dominica.
ANNUAL NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATION
One of DARDA's main objectives is the preservation of Dominica's rich cultural heritage here in America.
