Chalice, Assassin and Tessanne Chin, are among the local acts billed to perform at ‘Culture Night’, on Wednesday, June 24 at the Aqueduct in Montego Bay, site of the popular Jazz Festival.
The show is being staged by the Caribbean Classic Golf Invitational (CCGI) Foundation as a part of their annual events featuring a host of local and international celebrities, in an effort geared towards raising funds to equip local primary schools with computers and technology learning centres.
Also scheduled to perform are: Ras Penco, J McKay and Sasha Samantha. The charity fund-raising event will be hosted by Cedric The Entertainer.
The CCGI Foundation is focused on creating a platform for leadership development by bridging the technology gap for children with limited resources. Over the last four years, 60 primary schools have received computers, however, there are over 300 other primary schools in Jamaica that are still in need of a technology learning centre.
Richard Stephenson, president of the CCGI Foundation, has expressed that the foundation’s goal in 2009 “is to donate 400 brand new Dell computers to schools where children are in need”.
