NEW YORK, NY - 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" - taking place June 9, 2017 at Capitale as part of the week-long Caribbean Week in New York(#CWNY17).

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 colorful lights and live entertainment will transform the venue into an island haven where guests will be given a virtual journey through the Caribbean with food samplings and rum demonstrations. Consumers, travel industry professionals, officials from the region and Ministers and Directors of Tourism will mix and mingle while savoring eclectic cuisines and flavorful cocktails or immersing themselves into pulsating rhythms and cultural experiences that only the Dutch, English, French and Spanish Caribbean can showcase.

The evening will include a raffle featuring a Caribbean holiday package including airfare. The Auction will be online, but patrons will be able to bid on the many vacation packages, hotels stays and other travel related items from the event. Rum & Rhythm also features special appearances from top Caribbean personalities and celebrities, and Caribbean chefs and mixologists will showcase their talents with traditional Caribbean dishes and top-rated cocktails. Rum and Rhythm is the quintessential Caribbean cultural experience.

Leading up to Caribbean Week New York, the CTO presents Rum Rumble, a series of promotional mixologist competitions held at popular rum bars in Manhattan. Throughout May, well-known mixologists compete for the title of Caribbean Week Mixologist of the Year, which is announced at Rum & Rhythm. The Rum Rumble finalists will debut their winning cocktails at the event.
