AT&T Carnival compliant

Mirage Productions collected EC$4000 from AT&T (Wireless Ventures St. Vincent Limited) last Tuesday, while the East St. George Carnival Committee received EC$2000.
AT&T Sales and Services Manager Marlon Stevenson said the donation to Mirage Productions will be used mainly for sound reinforcement while the East St. George Carnival Committee will use their money for the staging of the East St. George Carnival celebrations slated for this weekend. {{more}}
Stevenson also said that AT&T will give solid backing to Mirage Productions next year.
Accepting the money on Mirage’s behalf was Lisa Allen who said that the donation will help with their presentation which is entitled, “Hawaiian Style 2004”.
“We would like to express our gratitude to AT&T; even though we are not bringing our main presentation, they still support us and have decided to stand behind us,” said Allen in an appreciative tone.
SEARCHLIGHT has learnt that Mirage decided against proceeding with their Midnight Sun production since bandleader Becks Gonsalves is not well.
Chairman of the East St. George Carnival Committee, Burt Francois, said that although the Committee had approached AT&T very late, the telecommunications company was able to assist them. He also noted that last year AT&T also came to their assistance.
“We are very thankful,” said Francois, adding, “We are looking forward next year to bigger and better things from AT&T.”
AT&T Wireless Ventures St. Vincent Limited has made a commitment to rural Carnival in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
