One of the messages usually expressed by political figures is the importance for partnerships to be created between Jamaican nationals in the US and nationals in Jamaica. This event is the perfect opportunity to strengthen those partnerships; we are taking a percentage of the proceeds and donating it to an organization we’ve identified in Jamaica that’s doing a world of good for the poor Food For the Poor. We will also give a percentage to a local organization that benefits our youth– Venette’s Cultural Workshop Scholarship Fund in Long Island, New York.
This event will become an annual formal fundraiser dinner dance for JADU.
Tickets are $110 (purchase in advance) you may contact Elegant Events by JADU 516-330-7150.

Jamaica – Food For the Poor
Jamaica’s housing needs are unique in the sheer numbers of the poor who lack adequate homes. At present, there are 15,000 families waiting for a new Food For The Poor house.
For The Poor builds quality, well-constructed wood houses in Jamaica for families who live in tin and cardboard shacks, under black plastic sheeting or in substandard hovels that do little to shelter them from rain and windstorms. The houses all have sturdy concrete foundations and are constructed with termite-resistant lumber. The cost of wood is the biggest factor in building these homes, since all the lumber must be imported.
