The Guyana Independence Celebration Committee (New York) says it will host an OGBA Paati (Garden Party in Yoruba) and cultural extravaganza on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, at the roof garden of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum.

The committee said part of its proceeds will benefit homeless children.

Committee chairman Rickford Burke said the affair will be an explosion of our various cultures.

“This concept was inspired by the love and support the Guyana Independence Committee (NYC) has received from other Caribbean nationals, as well as our brothers and sisters from Africa,” he said.

Burke said Ogba Paati will depict “unity, as well as the unique connectedness of Guyanese and Caribbean heritage to African.”
