Chances Games/Jarol Investments Ltd., continued its community service efforts by making donations to the Cancer Society of The Bahamas in Grand Bahama and The Beacon School.
Jarol Investments Marketing Director Karen Wilson, said that the company saw the need to contribute to the Cancer Society’s fight against the disease by donating $10,000 and continued its sponsorship of The Beacon School by donating $5,000.
Wilson stated that every year they have witnessed the rise of cancer in various members of the community and because of this, they recently made a similar donation to the Cancer Association and now are doing the same with the Cancer Society.
“Today is another donation for cancer that is rampant,” she said.
She furthered that the company often sponsors steak-outs and various events dedicated to funding medical expenses related to cancer.
“This $10,000 will go towards patients who need airfare into Nassau and also those that need treatment. Every two to three months, we’ll try to assist that way,” she said.
Wilson noted that one life lost to cancer is too much and this hits home for Proprietor R. H Culmer, his wife and the team at Jarol Investments.
“We really do care about our fellow Bahamians,” she said.
With regards to The Beacon School, Wilson revealed that the company has been making donations to the school for many years and will continue to do so, because Culmer and his team know that caring for special needs children takes special effort.
She revealed that they spoke to Jackie Cooper, Beacon School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) about getting a bus for the school so that donation may go towards that, along with school renovations.
“I know it will be used,” she said.
Newly appointed President of the Cancer Society GB Branch, Wardrina Wright, thanked Culmer and the rest of Jarol Investments for the donation. She informed that the organization does a great deal in helping cancer patients receive the treatment they need.
“We also assist in purchasing their tickets traveling to and from Nassau and assist with various other cancer-related medical needs,” she said.
Wright shared that the organization is planning an initiative for the month of May, which is Cancer Awareness Month, along with participating in talk shows and handing out flyers.
“We look forward to sharing it with the public soon.”
