‘Back-to-school brawta’

Tex­aco of­fer­ing big prizes to in­di­vid­u­als and schools in new pro­mo­tion

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

COM­MIT­TED TO giv­ing a lit­tle ex­tra, the own­ers and op­er­a­tors of GB En­ergy Tex­aco Ja­maica re­cently launched their ‘Back to School Brawta Pro­mo­tion’, which is ex­pected to ease the fi­nan­cial pres­sure on par­ents who are still strug­gling to fi­nance the de­mands they are fac­ing at the re­cent start of the new school year.

The re­cent launch of the pro­mo­tion was done in part­ner­ship with Red Bull, Cari-Med, Trop­i­cal Bat­tery, Black Stal­lion, Turbo Life and Kiss Bak­ery, and saw many per­sons turn­ing out for a fun-filled time.

Pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Par­ent-Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion of Ja­maica, Ever­ton Han­nam, and La­toya Har­ris, di­rec­tor of the Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion Trust (NET), were among those who en­dorsed the pro­mo­tion.

Har­ris spoke on the ini­tia­tives of the NET and its ‘Pledge2build’ cam­paign, which is de­signed to raise funds for schools. She en­cour­aged par­tic­i­pants to select schools that are in dire need of re­ceiv­ing a bur­sary or grant.

Guests and pa­trons were also treated to dance­hall star Ding Dong’s hits as he fired up the crowd and got ev­ery­one danc­ing.

He ex­pressed his sup­port for the pro­mo­tion by pur­chas­ing fuel for two cus­tomers, giv­ing them a chance of win­ning a gift cer­tifi­cate, bur­sary or grant.

The pro­mo­tion started on Septem­ber 1 and runs to Oc­to­ber 27.

It is open to only per­sons who are le­gal res­i­dents of Ja­maica and 18 years of age or older at the time of en­try. For each min­i­mum pur­chase of J$3,500 in gaso­lene or diesel, the pur­chaser will re­ceive an en­try coupon.

The en­trants must com­plete the en­try coupon, cor­rectly an­swer the skills test­ing ques­tion and deposit it in the iden­ti­fied bal­lot box at par­tic­i­pat­ing ser­vice sta­tions for a chance to win a pro­mo­tion prize.

The prizes will in­clude gift vouch­ers, bur­saries and grants. There will be six win­ners of a bur­sary grant worth $100,000 to the school of choice in­di­cated on the en­try coupons.
