The American Friends of Jamaica (AFJ), in collaboration with the Jamaica Committee, will host a joint fund raising gala, the 2013 Jamaica Charity Ball. Following the strong tradition of the Annual New York American Friends of Jamaica Gala, the South Florida inaugural Gala was staged in 2005. Organized by a dedicated group of Jamaican Diaspora living in South Florida, the event has been recognized as a new tradition and a elegant evening of dining and entertainment in honor of Jamaica. The proceeds of the event create significant social impact by raising important funds distributed to Jamaican charities in education, healthcare and economic development. The gala will honor Ms.Thalia Lyn, CEO and Managing Director of Island Grill, recognizing Ms. Lyn’s outstanding achievements and unwavering philanthropic support for Jamaica, and Mr. Glen Mills, dedicated Coach of the Racers Track Club.  Ms. Lyn will receive the International Humanitarian Award and Coach Mills will be presented with the International Achievement Award. The Ball individual tickets are $350 and the after-party tickets are $125 per person.
