TicketPal donates to Child Care Board
TICKETPAL HAS SIGNALLED its intention to be a “socially responsible” company through a partnership with the Child Care Board.
Chief executive officer Orlando Newton said they were hoping to raise as much as $100 000 in three years to “create a larger financial base” to assist with the Board’s residential reintegration programme. TicketPal representatives donated the first cheque for $10 425 this morning at the Child Care Board’s Cheapside, the City’s office.
The money was raised through a concert, held on March 29 at the Garfield Sobers gymnasium, which featured US singer Tasha Cobbs, Carlene Davis out of Jamaica, as well as local acts.
Chairman of the Child Care Board, Ken Knight welcomed the new partnership, adding it would go a “long way” in helping the reintegration initiatives. (LW)
