The University of the Virgin Islands announced the winners of the 24th Annual Afternoon on the Green held on Sunday, March 10. Afternoon on the Green Co-Chair Cheryl Miller thanked all participants, cooks and volunteers for coming out to support UVI's annual friendraiser and congratulated all of the cooks and volunteers that received awards on Sunday.
For a second year in a row, Brianna Hairston received the "People's Choice" award, by receiving the most texts through the Choice Wireless text voting. In 2012, she received the award for her vanilla cupcakes and in 2011 she received first place in the Pastries and Sweeties Category for her Red Velvet Cupcakes. As the "People's Choice" winner, Hairston won an Android phone from Choice Communications.
