SOCA VS DANCEHALL WILL DONATE TO ST MAARTEN

We are eager for the date to reach to enjoy SVD Glow Edition, but we are also saddened by the devastation of St. Maarten by Hurricane Irma. This is why the upcoming Soca vs Dancehall on September 29th will also be a benefit event for the victims of St. Maarten. We will donate a part of the income of the event, we will also have a donation box at the event where you can deposit cash. This will all be used to purchase necessary goods for the people on the island. Soon we will let you know where you can drop off goods which will be sent to the people on the island. The Melkweg is also donating to the cause. These are just a few of the things we are doing for the victims
