Jamaica's ultimate beach chill event, Sandz, is set to take place tomorrow to celebrate their one-year anniversary.

Sandz has been creating waves throughout Jamaica, bringing fashion, style, music and friends together to enjoy liquor and have fun.

The Sandz concept was coined by a group of young professionals touted as Supreme Events, whose aim was to conceptualise an event which would bring friends to the beach in the day, have it infused with music, premium liquor and a means to escape a hot summer's day, while having a laid-back experience. The gathering began growing as the network started expanding, which became an inspiration to share the same lyme with many who enjoyed such leisurely exercise. Since then, Sandz has been generating interest from corporate entities.

"We are excited to have Pepsi on board with us as we celebrate this amazing milestone, our one-year anniversary of providing "the ultimate beach chill" series of events for our patrons. We can't wait to share with those who helped us to reach this far and to show them all that we have in store," said Kitwahna Vassell of Supreme Events.

Sandz, the ultimate beach chill event, will be held at Sugarman's Beach in Portmore and begins at 12 p.m.

"We are encouraging patrons to come out early and bring your fashion game. We are doing things bigger and we look forward to a share in an entertainment packaged day," said Dexter Young, member of Supreme Events.

The party format is described as a cooler fÍte, so patrons are encouraged to carry their own coolers. Tickets are $1,500 pre-sold and $2,000 at the gate for general, while VIP tickets are $3,000 with food and drink inclusive.
