The question as which corporate entities are often most willing to respond
positively to request for sponsorship was unmistakably answered on Thursday afternoon when Star Party Rentals of 37 Craig Street, Campbellville inked its name on the growing list of sponsors to support the NaMilCo Football Festival which will be played from February 12 to March 4, at the Tucville ground.
The Company headed by former Guyana and USA cricket all-rounder Lennox Cush has agreed to provide all the security lights and chairs for the duration of the competition.
Cush, who is known for his unremitting benevolence, especially to sportsmen and women speaking with Kaieteur Sport shortly after overlooking the presentation of the letter of commitment at the Company’s location, said the decision to assist the Fruta Conquerors Club was an easy one for him, adding that it was prompted by the fact that he is involved in sports and is mindful of the importance sponsorship plays in supporting the development of sports and more directly the all-round growth of athletes.
“Because of what sports has done for me I just could not turn my back on the tournament which also serves to provide constructive engagement and recreation for the youths as well as act as a catalyst for many of them to escape the fangs of poverty through the acquisition of on-field and general life skills to make it to the next level,” Cush mentioned.
He added that the tournament has served a good purpose; pointing out that is shows how important are the grass roots tournaments which have been able to produce members of the current national team through the showcasing of their skills.
Representing the Company was Colwin Cummings, who handed over the commitment letter and Yannick Butler, while Fruta Conquerors Captain Eon Alleyne, Dennis Edwards and Tavis Hackett, acted on behalf of the club.
Also present was President of the club Marlan Cole, who was instrumental in securing the sponsorship.
