Guinness is honored by New York City.

Guinness Import Co. was one of four companies recently honored in a ceremony at Gracie Mansion, the New York City mayor's residence located in Manhattan.

The ceremony, hosted by New York's Mayor David Dinkins, was part of a celebration honoring the 25th anniversary of The West Indian/American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA). Guinness was selected as an honoree because of its support of the organization over the past quarter century.

Mayor Dinkins, together with Dr. Lamuel Stanislaus, chairman of the advisory board of WIADCA, and G. Stanley Browne, a member of the advisory board, presented the awards to the four honorees and praised the companies for their devotion and dedication to such a cause.

"Guinness Import Company is pleased to continually show their support for this cultural organization," stated John Hartwig, regional manager for the eastern division of Guinness Import Co., when he accepted the award. "The WIADCA has, over the years, made tremendous strides in preserving the rich tradition and heritage of the Caribbean."
