Red Rose for Gregory is among the big events scheduled for Reggae Month and is endorsed by Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, JARIA and the Reggae Month Committee. The organising committee is delighted to welcome the Mayor of Kingston and St Andrew, Senator, Councillor Delroy William as the 2019 event patron

Patrons will be immersed in a classy setting complete with all the trimmings of the occasion, which will include roses, chocolates, fine wines and great music.

The staging of this Valentine concert is in honour of one of Jamaica’s greatest recording artistes, entertainer and prolific songwriter – Gregory Isaacs.

One of the foundation's objectives is to continue the charitable works started by Gregory in his lifetime. As with previous years, part proceeds from the event will go to local charities. Among the beneficiaries is Patricia House, a drug rehabilitation centre in Kingston, the house provides rehabilitation for individuals who have lost control of their lives through the use of drugs.

The foundation seeks to help to restore stability to their lives, the lives of their families, and their communities, through prevention, artistic development, vocational training, literacy and basic education running as transversal themes and St. Barnabas Preparatory, Gregory’s first school will benefit from this staging of the event.
