As the greatest show on earth, Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival draws near, the producers of the premium all inclusive Carnival event Zanté are extending the invitation to the Soca loving public to come party with them while supporting the Kidney Recipient Support Group of T&T.
Zanté which is in its 5th year will have its annual all-inclusive fete on Tuesday 25th February at the Trinidad and Tobago Sailing Association (TTSA), Chaguaramas from 9PM – 3AM with the proceeds from this year’s event going towards the Kidney Recipient Support Group of T&T.
Zanté’s involvement with the Kidney recipient Support Group is one that hits very close to home for the event’s promoter Sharon ‘Pixi’ Thomson whose brother Lester succumbed to complications of kidney failure last August.
According to Pixi, “Throughout my brother’s stay in the San Fernando General Hospital, members of the Kidney Recipient Support Group of T&T were quite helpful in providing necessary information. Had Lester survived, there would’ve been a long period of dialysis and other treatment prior to him receiving a kidney transplant. This is Zanté’s way of saying thank you to the members of the group. They need funding to continue their much needed work”.
With a worthy cause, noble fundraising mission and elegant theme of ‘STRUT’ the 2014 edition of Zanté is expected attract to attract a fun-loving crowd of stylish, conscious-minded partiers. The premium all-inclusive affair will feature a unique mix of signature gourmet food offerings as well as top-shelf beverage options inclusive of the fete’s trademark ‘Pixi-juice’.
Additionally, Zanté will offer its local and foreign-based patrons pulsating music from top local DJs Private Ryan, Nuphoric and Kaotic and performances by Soca stars Lyrikal and 5 Star Akil.
