The 2024 Benny-Demus
Carnival Kickball Tournament

The Benny-Demus Carnival Kickball Game was created by Benny-Demus in 2017 and has now grown to an over 2000 - spectator event of all ages on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and through live streaming. The event features local celebrity musicians, Senators, Commissioners, policemen, firemen, teachers and many other locals playing a game of kickball where the public can enjoy seeing their favorite islanders in a more relaxed and down to earth setting. Every year the team Captains choose a NonProfit Organization to play for and the money is donated at the end of the game. Benny-Demus was successful in funding his first Carnival Kickball Game mostly on his own, but he would not have been able to do it without the help of donations from individuals and businesses from all over the Island. Our main goal is giving back to the people of the Virgin Islands and assisting these different organizations, as well as being able to provide a free, fun filled family day.
