On July 20, 2017, The Embassy hosted another interactive evening of Trivia night, an initiative designed to offer an educational, cultural and social experience to diverse audiences in the Washington metropolitan area where participants engage in a fun, interactive and competitive activity integrating lively Haitian music, with prizes awarded to members of the winning trivia team.
For this segment, the members from the winning team were gifted made-in-Haiti modern candles by Vetiver Les Cayes*. We were pleased to host Mr. Reginald Canal, president and founder of Vetiver Les Cayes, who participated in the Haitian Embassy’s inaugural pop-up shop during Haiti Week in DC earlier this year. A couple from the winning team also took home a custom made-in-Haiti decorative pillow designed by Haitian-American entrepreneur and designer Eddy Albertini*.
We look forward to hosting you at our next Trivia Night on the 27th starting at 6:00 pm. You may register HERE!
