Hol­ly­wood Glam with AMCHAM

Daily Observer (Jamaica) - - SO­CIAL -

On the evening of Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8 the Ja­maican chap­ter of the Amer­i­can Cham­ber of Com­merce (AMCHAM Ja­maica) in as­so­ci­a­tion with Ja­maica Broil­ers Group Lim­ited hosted the an­nual Busi­ness and Civic Lead­er­ship Awards for Ex­cel­lence.

The awards cel­e­brate “busi­nesses, in­di­vid­u­als and non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions that are driv­ing and achiev­ing eco­nomic and so­cial progress in Ja­maica through eth­i­cal lead­er­ship, ste­ward­ship, and com­mu­nity-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties”.

Guests, dressed in “Hol­ly­wood glam”, filled the Grande Ja­maica Suite at the Ja­maica Pe­ga­sus.

The red car­pet (yes, there was one) was a scene! At mo­ments it felt like the Acad­emy Awards — as the well-dressed no­table per­son­al­i­ties filed into the event, a throng of flash­ing lenses wel­comed them. The AMCHAM Busi­ness and Civic Lead­er­ship Awards for Ex­cel­lence had top-notch pro­duc­tion, well-heeled at­ten­dees and high­lighted “those who in­spire oth­ers with their vi­sion, lead­er­ship and achieve­ment”. Satur­day So­cial has high­lights.
