PHILADELPHIA: Caribbean Restaurant Nights engages Philadelphia’s finest restaurants to join in two fun-filled nights of food and music. The event is a fundraiser of Young Friends of Team Jamaica to sponsor young student athletes to the 2012 Penn Relays. Young Friends of Team Jamaica is a support group for Team Jamaica Bickle (bickle means food) that strives to engage young professionals and the “young at heart” in raising funds and volunteering to assist Team Jamaica in meeting its fundraising and community service goals to aid student athletes to live up to their full potential. Some 2,000 persons are expected to dine at ten (10) of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants over a two-night period. Team Jamaica sponsors over 500 high school athletes from Trinidad, Jamaica, St Vincent and the Grenadines; the Bahamas and Grenada to the Penn Relays. Team Jamaica provides three (3) hot meals per day, hotel assistance, ground transportation and hospitality services at a cost of close to 100,000.00 per year. The goal of Caribbean Restaurant Nights is to raise $10,000 towards the national goal of $100,000.00. All donations are 100 per cent tax deductible.
