The tribute is being organised by the National Cultural Foundation through the Heroes' Day Committee under the Ministry of Education, Youth Affairs and Culture.

Sir Everton Weekes will present a sculpture by Wayne Wells to Sir Garry on behalf of all Barbadians. The West Indies Cricket Board will also honour him with a ceramic piece by Bill Grace.
