Mega entertainment planned for Digicel STAR School 'Buss'

Published:Sunday | August 16, 2015 | 12:00 AM

The Digicel STAR School 'Buss' will offer much more than back-to-school assistance for patrons of the August 22 fair. The event will also include performances from some of Jamaica's top artistes like Ding Dong, Ikaya, Chi Ching Ching and the 2015 Digicel Rising Stars contestants.

In addition to promising their fans a set to remember, the artistes are also happy to be a part of the charitable event.

"It's important for companies to make the effort to give back to the customers that support them when they can, so big up to Digicel and The STAR, who are coming together to do this for the people," said Ding Dong.

"I'm also happy to be part of this movement because I, too, am a charitable person. I know it's going to be nothing but love to see smiles and joy on the faces of these kids and their parents, especially when they know they're getting help with something that maybe they couldn't afford or they really need for school," he added.

Also expected to be a big hit at the fair is the Amusement Village, which will be filled with rides ranging from bounce-a-bout, merry-go-round, mechanical bull, and many more for them to enjoy free for the entire day.

The Digicel STAR School 'Buss' is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 22, at the St William Grant Park, downtown Kingston, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Over 50 partners, including Vivo Health Services, Caprisun, Jamaica National, KSAC, Sangster's Bookstore, and Nestle, will offer free products and services to students at the fair, which will be hosted by Miss Kitty, Terri-Karelle Reid, and Badda Bling. Students will benefit from giveaways of phones, tablets, scholarships and school supplies.
