The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club has attracted sponsorship from overseas based Guyanese and has also established long term relationship with some of them.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster recently returned from a three week vacation to New York and took the opportunity to meet with friends and supporters of the Club. Rev. Robin Dinnanauth of the Tabernacle Emmanuel Full Gospel Assemblies Church committed $200, 000 ($1,000US) towards the Club’s Bakewell Second Division Team weekly feeding of the Poor Programme, while Businessman Lynden Armogan has donated $500US to sponsor the club’s 2009 Tribute to Heroes Programme which would be held on Wednesday November 4.
Among others who made financial contributions were Guyanese body builder Hugh Ross, Little Guyana Bake Shop, Indra Jainarine of Tota West Indian Bakery and Restaurant, Martin Cort, Brian Carpen of Carpen Plumbing Est, Leon Wiggins Jnr, Roy Hughes and Armand Ramdial.
The funds would be used for the Club’s annual charity campaign and also for its pro-education programmes.
The club with sponsorship from Mr. Bobby Vieira of Caribbean Air Cargo would be hosting on October 30 a Tribute to Teachers Programme.
The Programme which would be organised by the club’s Farfan and Mendes Under-15 and Pepsi Under-19 teams would be co-sponsored by Tota’s Bakery and Carpen Plumbing.
A total of ten outstanding Head Teachers would be honoured by the two young cricket teams.
The club has also secured a uniform sponsorship from Rana Hussain of Millat Sporting Corp of Brooklyn for its First Division Team. The team would receive 20 pairs of coloured uniform worth $800US ($160,000) for the 2010 season.
Discussions were also held with several potential sponsors for the New Year for new programmes directed towards sports development among youths in school.
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club would like to express profound gratitude to all the overseas-based Guyanese in the New York area for their support and look forward to them for their co-operation in the future.
Mr. Foster noted that the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club is well respected among the Guyanese community in New York as the club receives widespread media coverage overseas via weekly newspaper and the internet.
Meanwhile Mr. Bobby Vieira would be inducted as Honorary Co-Patron of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club. Mr. Vieira, General Manager of Caribbean Cargo and also a popular Television and Radio host in New York would join Ms June Mendes as Co-Patron of the club which is widely recognised as Guyana’s leading Youth and Sports Club.
He has readily accepted the offer to become the Co-Patron after meeting with the Club Secretary/CEO at his Company’s head office in Queens, New York.
