Nassau, The Bahamas - BTC was recognized for its commitment to culture during the Junkanoo Corporation of New Providence’s (JCNP) Annual Awards Banquet.
BTC has been the title sponsor of the Boxing Day and New Year’s Day Parades for more than five consecutive years. In 2012, the company officially announced its five year partnership with the JCNP. BTC recently renewed its partnership with the JCNP, recently extending the mutually beneficial partnership.
CEO Leon Williams commented, “In 2012, BTC officially adopted Junkanoo. We didn’t just adopt the parade itself, but we also provided funding to every group. In addition to the funds the JCNP receives as a part of our annual commitment, we also provide seed funding for each of the choreographed dancer sections from the groups. Every year we “step it up” a bit, and add something extra. This year we added a “Kiss Cam” in Rawson Square that wowed parade patrons and customers were also able to sign up for our new “FLOW To Go” mobile television service during the parades.”
In addition to the New Providence Junkanoo Parades, BTC also supports Junkanoo in Grand Bahama and the Family Islands, including Abaco and Eleuthera.
