Streams of bright red lights led to an eruption of fiery radiance enhanced by a cool blue which created a thin mist.

On Wednesday, December 11, the Jamaica Money Market Brokers' (JMMB) Personal Portfolio Management centre took their annual client appreciation mixer to the Mona Visitors' Lodge at the University of the West Indies. The red-carpet affair, themed Fire and Ice, treated specially invited guests to an exciting night under the stars.

Greeted by a fire and ice drink, the guests stepped into an oasis of red and blue surrounded by nature. They mingled as they helped themselves to the wide array of delectable hot and cold dishes, accompanied by exotic libations.

The atmosphere was warm and convivial, with interactive Latin dance on the main floor and blazing fire-breathing. Freeze Frame photos also broke out their most festive props, providing picture-perfect moments as keepsakes for guests.

Formalities were short and sweet and included a presentation to birthday boy, Herman Beumont, who came out to celebrate his 74th birthday with the JMMB family.

From there, nothing stood in the way of DJ Narity, as he whisked the now-content crowd off into the smooth sounds of yesteryear. And as the cool air took its place in the venue, guests heated things up in the dance floor to the electric slide, along with other popular 'oldie but goodie' hits.
