“We look at these promotions as a way of thanking them and giving back to them. The Jam rock Cruise was initiated in October of last year, the raffle. And the excitement level, the level of enthusiasm was very high and we announced a couple months ago that we would be doing the draw at the Expo. And that’s exactly what happened. We did it on Sunday and I’m sure that so many people were listening to the broadcast live and keeping their fingers crossed, but Mister Cecilio Gregorio of San Ignacio emerged as the winner.”

“Tell us about what they take away with winning this raffle?”


Linette Canto

“The winner walks away with the opportunity to go on the cruise; it is a five nights cruise. It starts on October twenty and runs to October twenty-fifth. They will be flown along with three of their favorite persons to Miami and there they will board the cruise. It stops in Ocho Rios and it stops in Montego Bay so they will be cruising the beautiful waters of the Caribbean being entertained by some of the most famous names in Reggae music along with their favorite people.  So it is an opportunity of a lifetime.”


Aside from the cruise, Smart will be providing the flight from Belize to Miami for Gregorio and his family.
