The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) announced it’s sponsorship of the 2014 True Blue Weekend & 10th Annual Dennis Ziadie Cup Match. JNBS has been a partner and sponsor of the South Florida event since it’s inception 10 years ago.
Since March 2003 Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) has been operating from its Representative Office in Tamarac, Florida offering information about JNBS products and services. The Florida Representative Office serves a critical function by providing a link with Jamaicans living in the US keeping them informed about happenings in the island. The Rep Office also facilitates mortgage brokerage, and financial services in accordance with the regulations governing operations in the United States.
The 10th Annual True Blue Weekend will take place on March 21st-23rd, 2014. The 3-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 St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. (STGCOBAFL) and The Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. (JCOBAFL) 10 year alliance have led to cooperation between Alumni associations in Florida. This helps build sound awareness and raise much needed funds for the schools in Jamaica. The annual True Blue event is able to garner much fellowship and camaraderie among the attendees as it becomes a reunion of sorts for ways to connect on all levels. As a sponsor, Jamaica National Building Society is pleased to be affiliated with this well organized annual event which has proved itself a positive influence to the community. I encourage all to attend and be part of the week end activities of the True Blue weekend.” 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. This year will mark the 26th year of the death of Dennis Ziadie in a car crash in Mexico at the 1986 World Cup. Last year’s match drew over 1500 spectators and supporters.
