The Immaculate Conception High School’s (I.C.H.S) Alumnae Association will be hosting its biggest Biennial Fundraising event, the I.C.H.S Hall of Fame Banquet on March 23, 2019 at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.
Funds go towards awarding Immaculate Students with tertiary level scholarships in the field of their choice so they can achieve their goals and help to build a bigger, better Jamaica.
Did you know?!
Did you know that founder and owner of Island Grill, Thalia Lyn, is a past student of Immaculate? A true representation of Mac Girl Magic.
Over the years, past Immaculate ladies have excelled in various fields such as Business and Commerce, Law, Medicine, Volunteerism, Education, the Arts and more.
For the Hall of Fame, nominees were chosen according to who stood out in the categories mentioned, i.e. excelling in their field. Nominees should have made a significant impact to the economy or culture locally and internationally, while being role models, leaving legacies well documented for the next generation.
Please show your support to these phenomenal women that are the 2019 Hall of Fame Nominees by purchasing tickets to the Hall of Fame Banquet.

On January 12, 2019, the Rotaract Club of New Kingston started the new year the right way. They coordinated a Treat for the Homeless at the Marie Atkins Night Shelter on Hanover Street, Downtown, Kingston.
Suga Lifestyle was more than happy to be a sponsor for the event, along with Jamaica Producers, Kirk Distributors Ltd., Cari-Med Ltd., Best Dressed Jamaica Ltd. and Refresh Beauty Soap.
I saw the event through and it was a success once again this year. Persons that lived at the home along with other members of the surrounding community, came out in their numbers to receive various services and items offered such as Medical checks, Dental and Cleaning checks, HIV Screening, Personal Grooming, Eye screening by the Lions Club, Canned Food and Clothing Donations.
Suga was delegated the task of adding a personal touch to speak to attendees about proper Nutrition. Their options may have been limited, but points made by conversations with several of them were of great help. For instance, to choose boiled ground provisions instead of rice and peas or plain rice and to drink water instead of sugary, fruit punch or fruit juices.
Kudos to the Rotaract Club of New Kingston, Sponsors, the Lions Club of Mona, Doctors, Physiotherapists, Dentists, Nurses, Barbers, Jamaica Producers and everyone who assisted to make the Treat for the Homeless a great benefit to our people.
Kerryanne Croft of the Vitamin M box says trying to fit in is boring, create the change you want to see.
What’s the Vitamin M box?
Based in New Jersey, Kerryanne saw a lack of support and love for Black owned businesses. She wanted to change that, so The Vitamin M Subscription Box was born. M is for Melanin, the dark brown to black pigment occurring in our skin.
Vitamin M isn’t just a subscription box. It is a movement to not only support these substantial businesses, but to help build their communities and share their stories. The Vitamin M box delivers brands in the form of beauty, fashion, books, home and lifestyle produced by people of colour to your doorstep.
Every 3rd month, Kerryanne donates 10% of the proceeds to a charity/non-profit in the Black and Brown community.
Kerry believes we need to continue to highlight these entrepreneurs over businesses that don’t see or respect their shine.
GW Art is a part of the Vitamin M box for December and the boxes are sold out!
What’s in it from GW Art?
It’s Always Wine o’clock Post-its! Just in time for your New Year’s affirmations.
Last Tuesday, October 16 was World Food Day and Rotary had a goal to collect 2 tonnes of food.
The Rotaract Club of May Pen partnered with the Rotaract Club of Ibicarai, Brazil (@rotaractibi) and donated food items, weighing ~28kg to a mother and her 5 children who recently lost their home and possessions to a fire.
They also donated clothing to the family and stationery for the children.
The family was grateful for the donations. Kudos to the Rotaract Clubs of May Pen and Ibicarai to help a family get a start after tragedy.
***If you would like to donate to the family, you can contact the Rotaract Club of May Pen***
