Bahamas First General Insurance Company is building on its Junkanoo legacy by confirming an ongoing multi-year sponsorship of The Saxons Superstars Junkanoo group, a partnership formed several years ago.

Group President and CEO for the leading general insurer, Patrick Ward, shared, “Our corporate offices share a community with the home of the Saxons Superstars. We believe in investing in the local community and in supporting Bahamian culture. While the art of Junkanoo hones the creativity and innovation of its participants, it also involves fine tuning leadership and teamwork competencies among other valuable disciplines.”

Leah R. Davis, Bahamas First Group Marketing & Communications Manager, confirmed that company is dedicated to its partnership with the Saxons organization and to collaborating on other community based initiatives and programmes.  “Of special interest is a Junkanoo workshop which we hosted earlier this year with the Saxons, to introduce children to the art of Junkanoo to ensure its continuity and growth. It is our intention to make this an annual event and continue to invest in the future of this valuable component of Bahamian culture.”
