The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and its partners Round Hill and Air Jamaica provided support to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Waterkeeper Alliance, during the recently held Iberostar Jamaica Celebrity Sports Invitational at Iberostar Rose Hall Grand Hotel in Montego Bay.
The four-day sports event saw a number of celebrities from across the United States competing in golf, kayaking, beach volleyball and a scavenger hunt, all designed to showcase the diverse offerings of Jamaica and the host hotel, Iberostar. The event also included themed Jamaican beach parties, a celebrity poker tournament, a gala dinner and a live auction, proceeds from which benefitted the Waterkeeper Alliance.
Round Hill contributed a seven day/six night stay in a two-bedroom villa with private pool while Air Jamaica donated a pair of Lovebird Executive class round-trip tickets from one of its U.S. gateways.
Jamaica’s Director of Tourism John Lynch was happy that its tourism partners were keen to lend their support to this initiative. “We are excited that our hotel and airline partners like Round Hill and Air Jamaica were able to come on board to help a most worthy cause. Any effort at promoting sustainable development is deserving of support. We are encouraged by the results of our great partnership and laud the work of Waterkeeper Alliance.”
“I want to thank the Jamaica Tourist Board, Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett, the Director of Tourism, John Lynch as well as Jamaica’s tourism partners Round Hill and Air Jamaica for their support last week of Waterkeeper Alliance. There is clearly no better place to talk about the need for clean water than in a country like Jamaica which is blessed with and surrounded by its clear blue water,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., President of Waterkeeper Alliance.
