Beverage giants Banks DIH Limited and Gilgeous First Choice Pawn Shop
have joined a long list of sponsors that have come on board for the Independence T/20 Cup one day cricket extravaganza slated for Saturday May 26th, Independence Day at the Albion Sports Complex. The joint Fundraising venture by the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) and Berbice Chambers of Commerce and Development Association (BCCDA) has been receiving overwhelming support from Cooperate Guyana. The tournament will be played under the theme “Celebrating Guyana’s Struggles, molding our future through the development of sports.”
Banks DIH Berbice deputy Regional manager, Joshua Torezzaro, on Tuesday presented a hefty sum on behalf of the beverage giants to Assistant Treasurer of the BCB and member of the organising community Romesh Munna at a simple presentation ceremony which was done at the company’s Berbice head office in Main and New Street, New Amsterdam.
Mr. Torezzaro said that his company has been one of the leading supporters of Sports and community activities in the country and is pleased to be a part of the venture. He stated that it is a distinct pleasure to work with two outstanding organisations and his company was more than happy to be a part to the impending spectacle. Banks DIH support for activities of such nature is unquestionable and again we are more than happy to be a part, the Manager said.
Gilgeous First Choice Pawn Shop with operations throughout Guyana also joined the numerous sponsors with sponsorship of an undisclosed sum.
The tournament will be part of the activities to mark Guyana’s 46th Independence Anniversary. Four teams competing are the Universal DVD Berbice Titans, Karibee Rice Tigers, Hits and Jams Superstars and New Line Cavaliers in their quest for the more than $1M in cash and other prizes on offer.

Admission to the venue is $500 for Adults and $200 for children with gates open from 9:00hrs. Tickets will be sold only at the venue and patrons are urged to get theirs early.
Proceeds from the activity will be used by both organizations to enhance their community and other charity works.
