The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) Foundation celebrates the diverse sights, sounds and flavors of the Caribbean at the sixth annual “Rum & Rhythm Benefit - The Ultimate Caribbean Epicurean Experience,” which takes place June 9 at Capitale as part of Caribbean Week in New York.

Rum & Rhythm Benefit is an elegant Caribbean cultural and culinary experience, but, equally important, it is a major fundraiser for the CTO Foundation, a charitable organization which provides scholarships to Caribbean nationals pursuing studies in tourism, hospitality and languages. 

The event is returning to the historic Capitale, where consumers, travel industry professionals, officials from the region and ministers and directors of tourism will mix and mingle while savoring cuisines and cocktails or immersing themselves into the rhythms and cultural experiences of the Caribbean.
