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.
This year Emma Blanc our Caribbean Director, and Sue Thomas-Richardson our Design Director accompanied some of our wonderful clients and friends to a performance on Thursday 19th February 2015 at Frank Collymore Hall. They gathered at the famous Tides restaurant for drinks and canapés before the performance, serving Sir Cliff Richard’s wine Vida Nova, which he has recently launched in Barbados.
The performance was produced by award-winning Neil Berg, who has created many Broadway hits including The Prince and the Pauper and Closer Than Ever. The cast of Broadway Stars performed hits from The Phantom of The Opera, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Jersey Boys and Gypsy. This year’s theme was ‘Return to Paradise’, and is sponsored by Diamonds International and Bulgari amongst other organisations.
