The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) has partnered with The St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. and The Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc as one of the sponsors of the 13th Annual Dennis Ziadie/True Blue Weekend. The event will take place March 24th – 26th, 2017. JNBS has been a partner and sponsor of the South Florida event since it’s inception in 2004.
“JN is pleased to be associated with this year’s calendar event, the 13th annual True Blue weekend that draws scores of Jamaicans to days of family fun and entertainment. The event is also important in honoring a legend, Dennis Ziadie who contributed much to the Manning Cup and the world of football. JN has found a home at these events as it’s right in the heart of the Caribbean community that reaches many Jamaicans. Many patrons will know JN as the mortgage company that provided them with their first mortgage or the first mortgage of their ancestors. We are proud of our heritage and will continue to serve Jamaicans in the Diaspora with excellence.” said 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 1200 spectators and supporters.
