PROVEN-funded Campion dinner fetes alumni, assists students

PROVEN in its commitment to supporting excellence in academics recently partnered for the 3rd time with the Campion College Alumni Association (CCAA) to host the 10th staging of the Hall of Fame Dinner at the Jamaica Pegasus.

The event, which will fund scholarships for brilliant but needy students saw hundreds of alumni and supporters gathering as the night honored past-students who have showcased excellence in their respective fields.

Filled with inspirational stories of triumph, the dinner began with cocktails as members of the media, invited guests and the 2018 awardees snapped, chatted and reminisced on memories they shared at the 105 Hope Road School.

The evening showcased the excellent talents of the Campion band and MC styling of past Alumni President Adam Jones who had the audience in peals of laughter and amusement. As past students and supporters enjoyed the event, a PROVEN 360-degree camera style booth invited guests to #ThinkBig. Patrons showcased their style and dance moves as the revolving camera captured every detail, exciting those who decided to take part.

Johann Heaven, President and CEO of PROVEN Wealth Limited and PROVEN Fund Managers Limited noted “PROVEN continues to deliver on its social responsibility, and the Hall of Fame Dinner is two-fold as it celebrates and rewards excellence”.

Heaven further stated, “The honorees we have partnered to salute, exemplify courage, resilience and skill in their respective fields as they have not only given back to community but have left an indelible mark for others such as the scholarship recipients to follow; they are a PROVEN success and align with our vision.”
