The Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister City Foundation, will stage its seventh annual Fund-raising Banquet and Dance, at the Atlanta Marriott Century Hotel on Saturday, September 20, commencing at 7:30 p.m.
The event will raise funds for the 15th Annual Health Mission to Montego Bay, to be undertaken from October 5 to 9.
According to Chairman of the Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister City Health Mission, Vin Martin, over the past 14 years, the Mission has served over 30,000 patients in St. James and neighbouring parishes. It is estimated that during that period, approximately $35 million worth of medical supplies and services have been donated.
Mr. Martin told JIS News, that members of the medical team comprise some of the finest physicians, nurses and volunteers.
Atlanta’s Mayor, Shirley Franklin, has commended the Atlanta-Montego Bay Sister Foundation for the great work it has done to strengthen the ties between both cities.
“Each year, members of the Health Mission team come together and give selflessly, to address the health care needs of the residents of Montego Bay and as Mayor of Atlanta, I want to applaud them for helping the less fortunate in Montego Bay,” the Mayor said.
Patrons to this year’s banquet will be entertained by Jamaica’s cabaret singer, Karen Smith.
The banquet is being sponsored by Air Jamaica and the Atlanta Hartfield Jackson International Airport.
