Jamaican resorts Half Moon, Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts and The Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa have also supported this year’s initiative.

The raffle will culminate during the week of May 20, 2012 when the winners will be announced at a special scholarship luncheon in Jamaica. 
 
COJO Founder and Chairman Gary M. Williams is grateful to the support of his corporate donors who have come on board to help us in our scholarship fundraising efforts.  “It’s all about the children who are our future, and that’s why we are so thankful to our hotel and airline partners who have joined forces with us to make this worthwhile investment and we encourage everyone to help us in attaining our goal,” noted Williams.
 
Long time COJO supporter JetBlue Airways is pleased to partner in this initiative.

“JetBlue is committed to Jamaica and to COJO, which has consistently demonstrated its dedication to assisting those in need. We believe that, through COJO, we can positively impact a child’s life by providing educational empowerment, to secure a brighter future, with the potential to influence an entire community.” said Icema Gibbs, director corporate social responsibility for JetBlue Airways.
 
For more than a decade, the volunteer-driven organization has supported a number of institutions in Jamaica as well as the United States.
