A Mediathon & Benefit Concert to help raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Irma in Sint Maarten, Saba & St. Eustatius


Willemstad, September 13, 2017  ̶ ONE LOVE SXM is a full day event that includes a mediathon & benefit concert to help raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Irma in Sint Maarten, Saba & St. Eustatius. The fund raising event will take place on Sunday September 17th from 8am till 11pm.

ONE LOVE SXM aims to bring everyone in Curaçao together to help raise desperately needed funds for the people suffering the devastation left behind by Hurricane Irma in Sint Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius. All proceeds generated during the fundraising activities taking place during ONE LOVE SXM will be for supporting the humanitarian efforts of the Red Cross on our sister islands.

The fund raising activities will start at SAMBIL at 8am and will continue all day until 11pm. A call center will be placed at SAMBIL to receive donations over the phone and several donation booths will also be placed in the shopping mall to make it easy for people to make their donations in person.

Starting at 4pm the fundraising activities will expand with a second location on Brionplein with a benefit concert that will feature some of the most prominent members of our local entertainment community. Participants include: ERA, DJ Bradley, The Sleeves, DJ Boogie Man, DJ Morgan Isenia, Dreams, DJ Maarten Schakel, Charming Bastards, DJ Argenis Huerta, Dejavu, DJ Menasa, Vibe Nation feat. Junior Tecla, DJ RO-1, DJ Chris Strick and Randal Corsen & Orchestra. The benefit concert will also count with the participation of Tony Castro and Melitza Haakmat as Masters of Ceremony.

All activities taking place during the mediathon and benefit concert will be broadcasted live by all media outlets in Curaçao.

During the ONE LOVE SXM event donations can be made through several methods:

  • Via telephone: a number will be made available to allow people to call in and make a donation commitment
  • At Donation Booths: these booths will be present from 8 am till 4 pm at SAMBIL Shopping Mall, and from 4 pm to 11 pm on Brionplein.

The ONE LOVE SXM Mediathon & Benefit Concert is an initiative started by UTS and the Curaçao Media Organization. The event is made possible thanks to the generous support of MASSIVE Productions, ENNIA, SAMBIL, Ictual, The Jingle Planet, Quota Club, Rotary Curaçao, Rotary Willemstad, JCI IOBA, Kiwanis Piscadera, Kiwanis Curaçao, Lions Club and TafelRonde.

We hope that everyone in Curaçao will join us in providing a helping hand for our brothers and sisters in Sint Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius.
