Committed to giving a little extra, the owners and operators of GB Energy Texaco Jamaica recently launched their 'Back to School Brawta Promotion', which is expected to ease the financial pressure on parents who are still struggling to finance the demands they are facing at the recent start of the new school year.

The recent launch of the promotion was done in partnership with Red Bull, Cari-Med, Tropical Battery, Black Stallion, Turbo Life and Kiss Bakery, and saw many persons turning out for a fun-filled time.

President of the National Parent-Teacher Association of Jamaica, Everton Hannam, and Latoya Harris, director of the National Education Trust (NET), were among those who endorsed the promotion.

Harris spoke on the initiatives of the NET and its 'Pledge2build' campaign, which is designed to raise funds for schools. She encouraged participants to select schools that are in dire need of receiving a bursary or grant.

Guests and patrons were also treated to dancehall star Ding Dong's hits as he fired up the crowd and got everyone dancing.

He expressed his support for the promotion by purchasing fuel for two customers, giving them a chance of winning a gift certificate, bursary or grant.

The promotion started on September 1 and runs to October 27.

It is open to only persons who are legal residents of Jamaica and 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. For each minimum purchase of J$3,500 in gasolene or diesel, the purchaser will receive an entry coupon.

The entrants must complete the entry coupon, correctly answer the skills testing question and deposit it in the identified ballot box at participating service stations for a chance to win a promotion prize.

The prizes will include gift vouchers, bursaries and grants. There will be six winners of a bursary grant worth $100,000 to the school of choice indicated on the entry coupons.
