Good Times For A Cause
Heineken Good Times, Jamaica’s premier old hits party, puts a practical spin to the concept of partying with a purpose, and continues to so with admirable consistency.
For over a decade, the brand has delivered quality entertainment, and in the same breath, has delivered well needed assistance to the less fortunate.
With this final installment for 2010 scheduled for the Mas Camp in Kingston for Saturday November 27, the team is again making plans to donate part of its proceeds to the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre, which has been a beneficiary of the Good Times series since 1997.
With each event, great care is taken to ensure that not only cash, but toys and other items are handed over to the centre to assist in its operations. This is a vital form of social responsibility which is essential in plugging the gaps that are not always detected by state entities or other private interests.
Good Times party fans can therefore party extra hard, knowing that their funds will be put to good use afterwards.
“This is something we committed to a very long time ago, “explains Jerome Hamilton of The Quorum Entertainment, organizer of the event.
“We have always encouraged patrons to bring gifts or other items for the centre, and we always seek to donate some of the proceeds from every single Good Times. It’s our way of giving back. We encourage other forms of assistance too, because no matter how small, it‘s appreciated.”
Heineken Good Times will end a phenomenal year on Saturday November 27, following memorable runs in Grenada and New York. With this being the final Good Times for the year, the Quorum Entertainment has made this one specially for the women, as this session will be titled Ladies Night.
As always, there will be premium bars fully stocked with drinks for the night, quality food and quality music from the best Djs who will let their turntables alone do the talking.
Good Times is Jamaica’s premier and oldest party series, held in Kingston, Ochio Rios and Negril each year. It draws together thousands of loyal fans from across all social strata in Jamaica, and also has robust support from overseas visitors.
