Donna continued her commitment to charity events by displaying her brand, SHAPE2000, appeared at two fund-raisers. This time; to raise funds for a recently-formed chapter of the Bishops’ High School Old Students’ Association, reflecting her love for the high school she attended as a teenager.
The Guyana event was held at Thirst Park, headquarters of Guyana’s premier brewery complex. Two weeks later she staged two displays in Jamaica. The major one, held at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies featuring 114 designs, was covered extensively by television and print media; the smaller, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston.
In June 2009, The Guyana Cultural Association of New York announced its 2009 annual Folk Festival Awards. Donna was listed as one of four honorees for the event under the theme, ‘Food, Fashion and Art’.
