Montego Bay, Jamaica: It will be Night Fever on Saturday, February 16, when Hanover Charities hosts its Annual Sugar Cane (this year Disco!) Ball and transforms Round Hill Hotel and Villas into the greatest party place of all – Studio 54.
Last year’s Pirates of the Caribbean Ball raised over USD$164,000 in the one night and the 2013 Fundraising committee, Chaired by Manuela Goren, will be rising to the challenge to better that figure.
The highlight of the Sugar Cane Ball festivities is its Silent Auction.– it is the Original and the Auction others try to emulate. By being able to call on the homeowners of both Round Hill and Tryall – the tables are filled with a truly eclectic range of fantastic items. Luxury villa breaks around the world, skiing holidays, visits to the sets of TV shows, designer jewelry are just a small taste of what party goers can expect to find to bid on.
The Sugar Cane Ball Raffle tickets with a USD$5000 shopping spree at Ralph Lauren’s flagship Madison Avenue store are always a great hit with party goer’s and for those who can’t make the party.
Everyone who works for Hanover Charities is a volunteer so all proceeds from the night go directly to it s projects. These include food programs, that every week feed over 700 elderly, ill and indigent citizens in the Hanover area. The Charity also supports facilities, clinics, institutions and projects that provide health care, as well as organizations that promote positive values and education for children.
The Morris-Watkins Memorial Scholarship, set up by the Charity 12 years ago to honour two former and formidable Chairwomen, provides financial aid and scholarships to between 35 – 40 promising tertiary level Students annually.
In 2012 Hanover Charities was recognized by being awarded the NCB Nation Builders Award for “Impact in the Western Region”.
So Will You Survive? All you Dancing Queens need to get out the Pucci, Gucci, and Halston, dig out those platforms, bell bottom jeans and white trousers dust off LOTS of satin and sequins and of course don’t forget the blue eye shadow as this is he dress code required to properly celebrate this one time only Boogie Night on the Beach.
