Diamond Jubilee Ball and Fundraiser

The celebrations started in February at our annual Sugar Cane Ball.  The party-goers sparked like diamonds and generously opened their hearts to make the 2017 ball the biggest fundraiser to date in Hanover Charities’ noble history.

The Sugar Cane Ball netted more than US$450,000 for programs vital to the health and education of our Parishioners. It will allow us to continue–and extend–our scholarships, our goals of adding computer labs to local schools, and our ongoing support of facilities that take care of the neediest in the Parish.

The Diamond Jubilee generated much publicity, too. Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness and his wife Juliet attended the festivities, along with opposition leader Dr. Peter Phillips and his wife Sandra.  Pictured left to right are Mrs. Sandra Phillips, Dr. Peter Phillips, Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Mrs. Juliet Holness

The guest list also included local Government Ministers as well as Ambassadors Carlos Alberto Den Hortog, Luis Moreno, and Audrey Markes. What’s more, Rickie Lloyd, social secretary to First Lady Mrs. Melania Trump was among the partiers, as well as Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and her family.
