Mount Gay to host charity event
Mount Gay Distilleries is continuing to fulfil its commitment of “giving forward” to the community with the hosting of a charity fund raising event in aid of the Substance Abuse Foundation.
Scheduled for Saturday, August 11, at the company’s headquarters on Spring Garden Highway, the From Inside The Circle concert will feature some of the island’s top entertainers.
It starts with a Songwriter’s Circle with Dr Anthony ‘Gabby’ Carter, Emile Straker and Indra, followed by performances by Lennox and Krisirie and a cocktail reception showcasing three top executive chefs an Mount Gay mixologists serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.
In addition to supporting a worthy cause the event will also provide regional exposure for the artistes as it is being filmed by a Canadian based television production company for inclusion in a new television series for broadcast by Flow TV channels in the Caribbean.
Mount Gay Distilleries Managing Director, Raphael Grisoni said the company was excited to be involved in the event: “This is twofold for us. First, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility campaign, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to spread the word and keep our Pace Yourself campaign going strong. So we are more than happy to be able to donate the proceeds from this event to the Substance Abuse Foundation and partner with them in getting this important message out to the public.” (DB)
