International Stars Performed For Charity
After two postponements caused by the weather gods, The Palmyra Foundation's Tropical Reggae Beach Concert and Benefit Dinner & Dance finally took place at The Palmyra Resort & Spa on February 11 - 12, 2011. The two Valentine's weekend fundraising events raised close to US$30,000 towards the purchase of books for 4 and 5 year old school children in Jamaica for the 2011/12 academic year. Causing an incredible buzz in the local media due to its high quality entertainment and attendance by local and international socialites, prominent business people and government officials, The Palmyra firmly established itself as the premier event venue on the north coast. Performers Tessanne Chin, Tarrus Riley and Dean Fraser, Third World, American Idol winner Ruben Studdard, Myrna Hague-Bradshaw and the Dwight Richards Band made it a weekend to remember.
