The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) announced it’s sponsorship of the 12th Annual True Blue Weekend which will take place April 1st – 2nd , 2016. JNBS has been a partner and sponsor of the South Florida event since it’s inception 12 years ago.
The 2-day event is hosted by The St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. (STGCOBAFL) and The Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. (JCOBAFL).
“The Diaspora has over the years become an important source of support for many schools in Jamaica. The spirit of the Alumni Associations in South Florida and the US at large takes it responsibility and charge to give back in tangible ways paving the way for their younger ‘brothers and sisters’ to get the best opportunity out of school. The True Blue legacy continues and Jamaica National remains unwavering in its support to see this event succeed way beyond their expectations and raise the funds and awareness of schools in Jamaica.” stated Janice McIntosh, Chief Representative Officer, JNBS.
The True Blue weekend is an expansion from the annual Ziadie Cup soccer match between The St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. and The Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. The annual match is in memory of Dennis Ziadie, who coached both schools to Manning Cup victories. Last year’s match drew over 1700 spectators and supporters.
