The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), one of Jamaica’s oldest financial institutions, has signed as a premier sponsor of the South Florida True Blue Weekend & 8th Annual Dennis Ziadie Cup Match. JNBS has a long history of supporting the Caribbean community in the South Florida area.
“Jamaica National is intimately linked to the Alumni Associations because it’s one of the means that the Jamaicans in the Diaspora connect with our beloved island, Jamaica”, said Janice McIntosh, Chief Representative Officer, Jamaica National Building Society. “The True Blue Weekend has become a great feature on the calendar of events because it brings a weekend of fun, togetherness and nostalgia. At JNBS we are pleased to be associated with this event and encourage as many persons to take part in the rich activities.”
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. Last year’s match drew over 1100 spectators and supporters.
