The Golden Age Home will host its first reggae concert this year, as it seeks to raise millions towards the construction of a health and wellness centre on its property at Vineyard Town in Kingston.

General Manager of the facility, Laurette Adams-Thomas, told JIS News that the concert will be held on Friday, June 13 at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre and is expected to generate some $20 million.

Apart from raising funds, the concert dubbed: ‘Resurge’, “will awaken the social consciousness of Jamaicans to care for the well being of the elderly. Resurge is also an indication of the improved quality care that will be provided to the seniors of the home,” she said.

Mrs. Adams-Thomas outlined that when constructed, the health and wellness centre is expected to boast a medical wing which will facilitate emergency and nutritional care services and minor surgeries.

The General Manager is appealing to Jamaicans to “consider supporting the event as part of their giving back to the elderly, who have made invaluable contributions to the country.”

The concert will feature renowned reggae artistes, Freddy Mcgregor, Queen Ifrica, Jah Bouks, Cherine Anderson, Ikaya and Uprising Roots.
