Poker and Charity: A continuing Good News Story

Antigua’s Finance Minister, Dr. Errol Cort, announced that the Calvin Ayre Foundation is implementing two initiatives aimed at advancing the educational opportunities of the local Antiguan youth.

The sponsorship is part of billionaire Calvin Ayre’s interest in contributing to Antigua’s social development on the island that is home to his foundation’s headquarters. “We’re extremely motivated to build on the educational needs of the local Antiguan youth, and we look forward to carrying out many more projects in this area in the years to come.”

Calvin Ayre Foundation was created by Ayre in 2004 as a way to increase the size and scope of the charitable projects Ayre carried out throughout the previous decade. The foundation is now actively involved in charitable initiatives in the Philippines, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Antigua and North America, and plans on increasing its presence in several other regions of the world in 2007, including the sponsorship of the higher education needs of underprivileged youths; constructing schools and sponsoring the educational development of underprivileged children; and constructing housing for those who could not otherwise afford basic living essentials.
