One more burden has been lifted of the shoulders of three Miss Dominica contestants as the search for sponsorship is finally over.
Jewele Brown of Pointe Mitchel, Octavia Prosper of La Plaine , and Royette Laurent of Portsmouth were stripped of their generic “2014 Miss Dominica contestant” sashes and clothed with sashes bearing the name of their sponsors; Petro Caribe and Discover Dominca Authority.
All three contestants are part sponsored.
Sales and Marketing Manger of Petro Caribe Ian Pinard said that the company is happy to be sponsoring three contestants of the Miss Dominica pageant.
“Petro Caribe is happy to partner again with DFC, we are happy to come on board in a big way to ensure that Mas 2014 is big and tremendous. We have been taking part in carnival for a few years now and so far we have spent maybe a quarter million dollars for the past years.”
According to him it is the first time that Petro Caribe is part sponsoring three contestants of the show.
Meantime, calypsonian Val “Young Bull” made a plea to the public to support Dominica’s carnival.
“All around Dominica will have activities, but it is important that Dominicans support your carnival. It is not a red carnival or a blue carnival, not a yellow Carnival or a LIME carnival alone it is all of us carnival so we look forward to you really coming out in a big way,” he said.
The Miss Dominica Carnival Queen Pageant is scheduled to take place on February 28th, 2014 at the Carnival City.
