2010 Jollification “Biggest Yet”
The recent Bahamas National Trust “Christmas Jollification” saw “Probably the biggest crowd ever”, according to Public Relations executive Keith Parker, who has covered “Jollification” since it’s inception. “The cars filled practically all of Village road, all the side roads and Queens College car park, it was amazing!” he concluded.
National Trust officers were delighted with the event, with main sponsor Bristol Wines and Spirits, joined this year by Asa H. Pritchard, The Nassau Florist, Something’s Different Edible Art and Bahamia Rentals.
During the pre-jollification members night, a constant flow of delightful “finger foods” was provided by Alexandra’s catering. The Something’s Different “edible art” stall with literally hundreds of brightly decorated and uniquely flavoured cup cakes also proved to be popular, especially with the youngest BNT members in attendance.
Once again the silent auction of art pieces, donated by exhibiting artists, proved to be a major fundraiser for the Trust. Recently elected National Trust president Mr. Neil McKinney noted – “It was a hugely successful event, and we at the Trust really appreciate the support of the Public for “Jollification” which is a major fundraiser for us and enables us to continue our work.
It is also an opportunity for dozens of Bahamian artisans, artists and crafts persons, to display and sell their creations to a wider public. Our continuing major sponsor, Bristol Wines and Spirits, obviously contributes to the increasing success of the event and we are happy to report that a record number of attendees became new members or renewed their membership in the Bahamas National Trust”, he concluded.
