Barbados – A fundraising dinner was held by the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Barbados in January 2014 at the British High Commissioner’s residence. The Frédérique Constant watch has been presented to 212 guests by a local celebrity and experts gave presentations about the burden of CVD in women and children to the attendees. This event raised funds to finance a healthy camp for children with heart conditions. Two defibrillators have also been donated to local communities.

“Having the opportunity to utilize this watch was a great experience, it allowed us to have a campaign which targeted high networth individuals to our auction, it provided a level of sophistication that we could not have obtained without a real upfront cost. So I thank you and Frédérique Constant for not only supporting the cause be allowing us to gain access to individuals we would not normally relate to all for the good of the children of Barbados with CVD.” Gina Pitts, CEO of the Barbados Heart Foundation.
