In its efforts to raise $100,000 to rebuild Maxfield Park Children’s Home Basic School in Jamaica, JAMPACT will host the 2012 C.H.I.C. Benefit Gala on Saturday, June 16th at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music in New York, NY. The event’s goal is to entertain and drive home the importance of the organization’s cause of early childhood education and raise the monetary funds needed for construction of the new Maxfield Park Basic School.
The C.H.I.C. Benefit Gala will feature fabulous fashions from designer, Terese Sydonna (click here to view one of Terese’s shows), the presentation of the prestigious JAMPACT Founders Award to Jamaican author, journalist and former member of JAMPACT, Kellie Magnus, great food, fine wines and much more. The C.H.I.C. event also acknowledges Jamaica’s 50th Independence Anniversary Celebration and Jamaica Diaspora Day.
To date, JAMPACT has raised 20% of the needed funds for the rebuilding project. Maxfield Park Basic School (like most) in its impoverished area, receives little or no funding from the government but even more significantly, is a school whose entire student population is either orphaned or abandoned. JAMPACT’s efforts are not just to erect a building, but provide a solid foundation and invest in the lives of our children for an impactful future. All proceeds raised will go towards Maxfield Park.
