Along with providing a path for financial freedom, the Credit Unions of Jamaica (CUJ) brand is also in support of wholesome entertainment, and it's against that backdrop that the CUJ is back this year as the title sponsor of Gosplash.

This commitment was confirmed on Monday, April 11, with the signing of the sponsorship agreement, which took place at the offices of the Jamaica Cooperative Credit Union League in Kingston.

"This is our third consecutive year as a sponsor of Gosplash and our second year as title sponsor. We're back in a bigger way as we've received significant benefits from this partnership," said Claudette Christie, communications manager of the Jamaica Cooperative Credit Union League, the umbrella organisation for credit unions.

 

FAMILY FOCUSED

 

"The CUJ brand is not new to this kind of partnership. Gosplash is family focused by way of providing wholesome entertainment, and this fits into the mission and vision of the movement," Christie continued.

Now in its fourth staging, CUJ Gosplash is the ultimate beach family fun day and gospel concert held annually on Emancipation Day, August 1, at Sugarman Beach in Hellshire, St Catherine.

"In this harsh economic climate, it's very challenging to cover costs associated with producing an event of top-class quality, so my sponsors play a vital role in this regard. "ACTION Entertainment is very grateful and humbled to have as sponsors and partners, the CUJ," said the title sponsor of Gosplash 2016," Markland 'Action' Edwards, managing director of the company.

"We are still in need of additional cash sponsors, and speaking with past sponsors as well as some potential sponsors, we are confident they will come on board and make Gosplash the usual success it has been since its inception in 2013.

CUJ Gosplash 2016 is a family event filled with lots of fun, games, activities, and giveaways from sponsors coupled with a star, studded gospel concert with Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, arranger, producer, pastor, actor, and the star of Oxygen network's popular reality series Preachers of L.A, Deitrick haddon, as the headline act. He will be joined by some of Jamaica's top gospel artistes.

Other sponsors include RJR Communications Group, iCool, KIA Motors, Courts Optical, Courts Ready Cash, Love FM, TBC Radio, and The Portmore Municipal Council.

As is the case last year, part proceeds from CUJ GOSPLASH 2016 will go towards the Braeton Primary and Junior High School computer lab.
