MONTEGO BAY, St James - The Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) Montego Bay chapter will stage its annual fundraising event on Saturday March 31, at the Montego Bay Yacht Club in St James.

This year's fundraiser dubbed 'Jubilee Jam' is in recognition of Jamaica's fiftieth year of Independence.

Patrons are expected to wear their Jamaican colours to the event in keeping with the national theme.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards the various charities that are supported by the JHTA, including the 'Save The Boy Street Programme.'

Under the programme, children are removed from the streets of Montego Bay and sent to school.

The Association is also raising funds to refurbish the Tower Hill Basic School in St James.

Public Relations Officer for JHTA's Montego Bay chapter Nadine Spence said, "we recently restored the roof of the school building and discovered other problems that need to be addressed. We will be using some of the proceeds to carry out the additional work that needs to be done."
