“Jammin’ For Tomorrow” event on Sunday 9th October at Surfer’s Bay from 2pm TO 6pm
Marielle Wilkie was a contestant in the recently held Miss Barbados World pageant and the winner of the esteemed “Beauty With A Purpose” title.
Marielle’s campaign is entitled, The Tomorrow Project – designed to Educate, Empower and Enable – helping to create a better tomorrow for disadvantaged and severely brain injured young people in Barbados.
The first phase of the project is dedicated to raising funds for The Because of Jenna Trust enabling them to continue creating a better tomorrow for severely brain injured children here in Barbados.
There are over 2,500 severely brain injured children in Barbados, and every year the number increases. The Because of Jenna Trust creates public awareness of the plight of the children and their families, raising funds through charitable events and personal and corporate donations. The funds help these families pay for the kind of specialized treatment, equipment, supplies and care that are so vital on a day-to-day basis. In many cases, it’s single mothers who carry the burden – they can’t work because they can’t leave their child alone.
The financial pressure is enormous, and the emotional strain is simply indescribable. The Tomorrow Project’s first fundraising event is Jammin’ for Tomorrow which will take place at Surfers Bay on Sunday 9th October from 2pm to 8pm (tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children – available from Dingolay Sheraton and Lazy Days at Lanterns Mall). It will be an informal afternoon in a lovely setting by the sea, where everyone can come out and enjoy top local entertainment including NexCyx, Buggy Nhakente & Fully Loaded, Simon Pipe, Indrani, Tamara Marshall, ViZion, Jae Johansen, Alisha Stoute, Blak Kla Soyl, with DJ Andre Rebel Elias, DJ Bling and DJ Karpologist.
