Still no sponsors for 2016 National Queen contestants

The contestants are still in search of sponsor
The contestants are still in search of sponsor

The date for the National Queen Show is drawing nearer and none of the contestants have yet to receive sponsorship.

The Carnival committee is said to be operating at a loss this year and organizers continues to appeal to the private sector to make a commitment towards Carnival.

“These ladies have been working extremely hard, it’s six ladies and they certainly want to put on a most fantastic, amazing show for the Dominican public and to date there is still the struggle for sponsorship for those young ladies,” Marketing and Communications Executive for FLOW Dominica, Ferdina Frampton said while delivering an address at the third Carnival press conference on Wednesday. “It may not be a full sponsorship that you can give, it may be half, it may be a quarter but little goes a long way in times like these and in situations like these.”

Frampton, who is also a member of the Queen Show Committee, pointed out that the committee is aware of the situation in the business environment in Dominica, however, “if that’s the only contribution you can make during Carnival, let that be the contribution that you make in support of one of those young ladies.”

“Five thousand dollars adds up, $2,000 adds up, $10,000 adds up, whatever it is that you may be able to contribute in one way or the other, I think you should make the effort to do so…,” Frampton explained.“Little is always a lot when you need it.”

Nonetheless, she stated, that the contestants are preparing with the support of the Dominica Festivals Committee (DFC) and the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA).

The contestants are Tasia Floissac, 22, of Castle Comfort; Abigail Shillingford, 19, of Goodwill; Britney Pharoah, 22, of Grandbay; Nawana Shillingford, 25, of Loubiere; Mernel Christmas, 19, of Campbell and Judy Toussaint, 20, of San Sauveur.

The National Queen show is carded for February 5.

    You know, I could end this with one single word, by saying the reason there are no sponsors are all due to the Arab Spring, which the Dominica government blame for a lack of money in the country, to even to finish construction on their Moroccan guest house!

    Seriously, such has to come to light so that Dominicans can come to their senses and realize that there is no normalcy in Dominica; in regards to money circulating in the country! The government led by a rich dictator gives the nation the impression that Dominica, is much more wealthy than the rest of the Caribbean.

    I am here to suggest the reason why there are no business sponsors is all due to the poverty which exists in the country; the success of every business depends on the spending power of the people, if the people do not have any spending power; does not have money to spend the business struggle, they can’t use the little they have to sponsor carnival queen. Very sad but that’s our nation reality!

    I do find that these pageant, teen, queen shows somewhat depressing, short-sighted and small-minded. All the girls now, before and in the future are beautiful and attractive Dominica is bless. There are so many of them that you quickly forget who won what. They may be talented, creative and intelligent, but we don’t know that or even when revealed we are more likely to dismiss/downgrade it in preference for the girls physique and facial features. A cultural sadness.

    On the other-hand businesses exist to make money. NOT to operate as charities. If they have $5,000,$10,000 or more, I would prefer they give it to their employees as bonus rather than spend it this way. I also believe the parishes should be the ones made responsible for sponsoring. Let them arrange the budget and choose the girl.

    Ok so my suggestion. Forget about the Carnival Queen this year.. The ladies have been chosen for next year show.. So have them go out there and look for the own sponsors. They have a whole year to get their stuff together.

    Too much politics in Dominica. The carnival committee needs to consider the time of year when Carnival should be held. It’s time for change if Dominica wants to increase revenue. I suggest sometime in the summer. God bless our country and Queen contestants.

    Ms. Frampton should say how much it costs to sponsor a contestant and also a brief summary of how the money will be spent.

    Oh boy after reading all this comments boy I was in tears laughing.You people have the greatest sense of humor. I feel for bad for those girls but they have to understand these businesses are not doing so good like before, people don’t have jobs to pump money into the system so there for the businesses don’t have money to waste on things that not so important like this. Anyway try next year young ladies or maybe they can ask pm to help . good luck girl.

    This is the problem with Dominica: no forward planning. It is sad that no sponsors have yet come on board but this is a most serious indictment of the Queen Show Committee. My dad always said to us the following: “A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part”. That said , though, if there are individuals who are able to contribute, please do so.
    HOTEP!

    I have a problem with that amount they are asking for, $2000 , $5000 or ten thousand will help. If you want funds from the public start off with $100 or so maybe the poor people would be able to help. But personally it is to much I cannot afford that figure.

        You know the answer to that, Roosevelt has the largest cabinet in the Caribbean, there are more government ministers in Dominica, than in Obama’s cabinet in the United States, it takes less than seven people in Obama Cabinet to run the country, and I am not talking about the Senate, and the Upper house.

        There are more than thirty minister in Skerrit government all each has to do is donate $2,000.00 each 2000.00 X 30 = $60,000.00 dollars. If that is not enough, Skerrit has enough he could probably sponsor them all!

        In any event since mostly all the ministers owns more than one house valued at millions of Dollars, all the need to do is forger about all the passports the sold…………, and simply sell one of their millions of dollars house and sponsor the whole thing!

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha: this is a wake up call to the nation!

    I am really sorry that the young ladies going through this embarrassing but I am glad it happened this way to teach the DFC and queen show committee etc to APPRECIATE the sponsors more. As a sponsor you not supposed to be begging for complimentary tickets to the show, much less to be give two tickets for a sponsorship worth in excess of $20,000.00. A lot of sponsors don’t feel appreciated.

    Furthermore some of these young women are ungrateful ……!! Some don’t pass back to say ‘Thank you’. Not a card or call..nothing! So I certainly don’t blame these sponsors for being reluctant to come on board. Bad treatment all round…..

  23. Independent Observer
    January 15, 2016

    There is a glut on the market in DA as it relates to beauty contests. DA is small and so the sponsorship pool is limited. Perhaps this could be one of the contributing factors to the lack of sponsorhsip :cry:

    If this is the way things are going just now you will not get any young ladies in Dominica to go for Carnival Queen Show, if they cannot get any sponsors, and how comes is only the Carnival queen Show girls/Ladies that cannot get sponsors, i see the Princess and Mother Queen show pageants getting sponsors, what is that nah…why are they not getting sponsors…

    • I SAY SO
      January 15, 2016

      it’s probably because the princess and queen mothers asked people they know to back them up on their quest. And walk around with their sponsor sheets asking for donations, having a chat with local symstresses to make their clothes for less than $2000, those little girls just pass around their school and raise the money pronto. Carnival Queens expects it handed out on a silver platter …..or didn’t anybody tell them? Psssh

  26. Leah Remy
    January 15, 2016

    First of all, I crying down big stupes on Queen Show Committee. How come is now all you want to be looking for sponsors for those girls and all you know every year all you having this pageant??

    Second of all, why are you all doing the same old thing over and over again expecting different results? It’s clear that the Dominican public has very little interest in pageants, so probably you all need to either drop that pageant business from the roster of carnival activities totally or re-vamp your approach to getting sponsors.

    Third of all I’m not even a beautiful woman, but gosh, these girls are so plain looking. They have nothing going for them in the way of looks. Strip away all of the garish make-up and you would see that these girls don’t even rate a 6 by way of looks. (And the ratings thing is my son eh, so don’t shoot the messenger :-D ) Where are all the beautiful tall girls that took part in Dominica’s Next Top Model 2014?

    None of them are queen material.. This is a real mismatch this year. Now the question to be asked is WHY. Did we treat the past queen with the respect she deserved? Did we do all we could and more to meet her every queenly demands? Are we as a responsible entity doing what it takes to attract the best girls matching the profile of a Queen..

      Not sure what you mean by your comment that none of the ladies are queen material. Shame on you! I dare say that you have a mother and sisters, yet you show such disrespect to those young ladies who are trying to keep a tradition alive. Perhaps it might be time to revisit the pageant but that does not give you or anyone to make such vile comments.

    January 14, 2016

    Since Tropical Storm Erica the government has found excuses NOT to do so many things so now the private sector is using the same excuse not to sponsor the queen show. For some reason I believe people and businesses are of the firm belief that the ministers are the ones benefiting in every facet as a result they have left the responsibilty for those cabalists. People have been hesistant to do things not because TS Erica affected them directly but because they are not seeing the ministers using any of their personal funds except to make themselves more affluent. For example while there was a call for people to house persons from petite savanne neither Blackmoore, Ian Pinard, Skerrit, Melissa , Austrie, lennox Lawrence housed them into their mansions. In fact their women and children are living comfortably.

    No ! The Government should stay out of this . Maybe the Tourist Board should get involved . In addition other civic groups in the business if promoting DA should initiate fund raising events for these events so that we do not have to wait until the last minute for funding . Whatever happened to Jaycees, Chamber of commerce, The Rotary Club ?

    If they listen to me you need to solicit sponsorship the year before the show, hence make it go to a general pot and move away from each girl having individual sponsors. If the costume round is sponsored by Commess boutique then monies should be equally divided to execute that round and so forth. This late in the game begging for monies look bad, even thou there is favoritism behind the scenes carmem. Start planning as soon as this queen show is over hence put a request out to have new bodies in helping with the planning process etc. Nuff said

        Have you forgotten that Astaphan is trying to sue any and everything that breathes or even dead?

        DNO . Please keep moderating and protect us from Mighty Astaphan of the House of Litigation.

        Joe, I think Tony Astaphan is trying to compete with Judge Jeffreys (who was a Baron by the way!). Read up on the man and you will understand what I mean. Maybe next time Skerrit will knight him?

      you should also find out who is responsible to get sponsorship. The DFC not the young ladies who have to seek sponsorship.

        The young ladies don’t have to do anything. Nobody is forcing them to take part but maybe is somebody telling them that if they want to do it they must pay somemthing. Is a business for someone, nothing else.

    Well ,well , from the monies of the sales of passports which goes into private accounts , i think the queens should have already gotten sponsors by the private individuals, who say they love Dominica so much.very . sad , sad , sad.

    Dominica’s business’s seem to be suffering as is the whole of Dominica, with lack of funds. I like to see the PM as Robin Hood! The PM can come to the assistance of these beautiful young ladies Our PM is our saver in times of trouble! We are counting on his generosity and help.God Bless our PM Skerrit.

    I believe that the Government needs to step up and make a substantial contribution and likewise the opposition

    At this point you should be looking for sponsors for next year contestants not this year’s.

  59. January 14, 2016

    I wish if i had won the power ball 1.5 billion,I would have sponsored every single contestants,I would have find someone to donate thousands of dollars to compete with Mr.Skerrit next general election with good ideas,intelligent ,tegrity,honesty and good leadership for our country,and build an international airport and a marina Portsmouth area.

      Not sure what you mean by your comment that none of the ladies are queen material. Shame on you! I dare say that you have a mother and sisters, yet you show such disrespect to those young ladies who are trying to keep a tradition alive. Perhaps it might be time to revisit the pageant but that does not give you or anyone to make such vile comments.

      Go crawl back under your rock!

    I am hopeful that Mr Kieron Pinard-Byne will be generous and kind to sponsor all 6 contestants after receiving EC$80,000 following the judgement by the Privy Council. This is a worthy cause. We will be very happy!!!

      Besides he said he wasn’t doing it for the money. So he should just donate it

      Actually, Mr Keron should donate this money to the people of Petite Savanne.

      These ladies should go wrk for their sponsorship!
