Friends and Clients of Jenny Blanc gather with Caribbean Director Emma Blanc, and Design Director Sue Thomas-Richardson at Broadway to Barbados 2015: ‘Return to Paradise’
Here at Jenny Blanc we sponsor the Broadway to Barbados Charitable trust, whose Chairman & Project Coordinator is our friend and client Robert J. Bourque. The trust has been set up to raise money for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, especially its new Medical Intensive Care Unit, of which the island is in great need. The trust also aims to create a ‘Nurses Appreciation Program’ to improve the morale of 600+ nursing staff, as well as the repair of equipment, training programs, and a ‘Kids Helping Kids Program.’ Every year this fantastic organisation puts on a Broadway Musical Revue over a period of seven days, flying the best Broadway stars to the island for a truly memorable experience, and to raise money for this important cause.
