Ticket sales to aid in food project
THE BARBADOS VAGRANTS AND HOMELESS SOCIETY (BVHS) is embarking on a fund-raising project through the discounting of tickets in exchange for a donation of canned food items.
Chairman of BVHS, Kemar Saffrey, told the media on Thursday during a Press conference at the South 7 Bar, Hastings, Christ Church, that Gold Coast Records Inc. and its Love Barbados Campaign, donated 2 000 tickets to the society to allow people to get them at half price at two locations when they produce a canned item.
The tickets are for the upcoming Fantasia Live In Concert.
The canned foods will be presented to BVHS following the concert and the organizers are hoping to collect about 6 000 canned food items through the charitable effort, which is made possible through a British humanitarian, who is making up the unpaid portion of the ticket prices.
The humanitarian, who has requested anonymity, has allowed the concert’s organizers to receive the full price on tickets sold through the limited promotion and has said that his “intention is to ensure that Barbadians understand and appreciate the joy of giving to the less fortunate even during these difficult times”.
