It was a glitzy and glamourous affair when Sagicor Group Jamaica hosted its annual Corporate Awards ceremony at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel last Tuesday for its outstanding team members who excelled and performed exceptionally well in 2018.
From the welcome reception to the cocktail in the gardens, guests were ‘wowed’ by the precision with which the “Live on Broadway” theme was executed.
Guests were ushered into the ballroom for the official awards ceremony, where they were greeted by a palatial theatre-style set-up, which oozed elegance with the black and gold décor theme bringing to life the Broadway-esque feel.
The evening’s entertainment was a nod to the exceptional talent of Jamaica’s performing arts industry with a sensational line-up of performances throughout the programme including a rendition of the National Anthem by the Immaculate Conception High School Symphony Orchestra, which was followed by some powerful, lively and energetic performances interspersed throughout the awards ceremony all fit for Broadway.
