Thanks to the support of the community, Kids Fest Five (held on April 23rd at the Morne Rouge playing field) proved to be a success.
As a result of the event, Real Value IGA was able to donate the profits to the Bel Air Home for Children and Adolescents, continuing our commitment to the Home – and community in general – as part of the Company’s Community Outreach Program.
The Real Value IGA Marketing Team was on hand to present the Home with a cheque for $5,000ec. Marketing Assistant Marcella Jeremiah spoke of the “long-standing relationship” between The Bel Air Home and Real Value IGA. Indeed, this is the fifth year in succession that the Home has benefitted from such a donation. Ms. Jeremiah went on to thank the following sponsors who helped make Kids Fest Five possible:
Spiceland Mall International, D. A. Monroe & Sons, Fortune Foods Ltd., Glenelg Spring Water, Frank B. Armstrong, LIME, Home Pride Bakery, Holiday Snacks, Grenadian Optical Laboratories, Inch Per Second Ltd., Island Dental Clinic, Grenada Broadcasting Network, Boss FM, Grenada Breweries Ltd., Cathwills Stationery Services, Sugar & Spice Investments, Independence Agencies, Grenada Bottling Company, Waggy T Sound & Rentals, True Blue Bay Resort.
The Bel Air Home for Children and Adolescents opened in 1999 and serves to house, raise, and develop Children and teens that have been subjected to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
The Home plans to use the money to supplement ongoing projects including construction of a sewer system, and building repairs.
