Pocket Rocket Foundation partners with AmCham
GAIL ABRAHAMS, CEO of the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Jamaica, presented a cheque valued at $704,000 to the Pocket Rocket Foundation.
In making the presentation, Abrahams said “partnerships such as the one AmCham had with the Pocket Rocket Foundation is what we are about, as the funds raised are for the well-being of children. We recognise and applaud the work ambassador Fraser-Pryce has done with the Pocket Rocket Foundation and encourage corporate Jamaica to support the foundation in its many endeavours. We will continue to work and support ambassador FraserPryce and the foundation.”
In her remarks, Fraser-Pryce noted, “AmCham’s partnership with the Pocket Rocket Foundation has been very successful and fruitful. Our first fundraising event from the premiere of the movie Race helped student athletes, and for that we are very pleased. The Pocket Rocket Foundation is committed to continuing its work to impact the lives of young Jamaicans and we urge other corporate entities with the power to give back to work and enrich the many communities in Jamaica.”
Last year, Fraser-Pryce was the recipient of the President’s Award for her contribution to Brand Jamaica, at the annual AmCham Business & Civic Leadership Awards for Excellence at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.
Twelve Jamaican organisations and individuals were honoured at their sixth annual Business and Civic Leadership Awards, presented in association with GB Energy – Texaco.
