Final Queen Contestant Receive Sponsorship
The final contestant for the Miss Dominica 2014 Queen Pageant, Ms. Shalina Samuel, representing the Roseau North Constituency, can now blow a sigh of relief, as she was on Thursday February 13th 2014, partly sponsored by Petro Caribe.
Sales and Marketing Manager at Petro Caribe, Mr. Ian Pinard made the announcement during the Dominica Festival’s Committee (DFC) weekly Carnival press conference.
He said, the Company has been partnering for Carnival with the DFC and other Carnival committees Island-wide to assist in various ways.
Petro Caribe thus far has spent $50,000 in this year’s Carnival celebrations, demonstrating the Company is fully onboard.
He remains hopeful that other sponsors will come onboard to assist in whatever way they can.
All these projects, in addition to sponsoring various Carnival activities, he said, are clear indications of Petro Caribe’s commitment to giving back to the community.
Ms. Samuel thanked Petro Caribe for their kind gesture in sponsoring her.
“I am grateful and honoured to be sponsored by such a great institution, whose aim is development”, she said.
A special thank you also went out to the Dominica Festival’s Committee, the Queen Show Committee and their facilitators.
