Freeport, Grand Bahama Island – With its official launch last week Sunday at Churchill’s, Grand Lucayan, The Kamalamee Organization pull out all stops to show their appreciation to their 10 Honourees.  The evening began with the honourees arriving on by on into the Churchill’s dining hall.  During the dinner co-founder C. McMahon Campbell expressed his gratitude to all of the honourees on behalf of the Organization.

Once dinner was completed, part two of the evening was announced. None of the honourees had a clue what to expect, because prior to the evening 150+ handmade personalized invitations were sent to some of their closes friends and family members.  One by one they entered to a room filled with cheering, well wishing people they knew that made the night a very memorable one. The sounds of songstress Shelly Carey and Mike Carey on keyboards added to the special ambiance.

One of the honourees stated, “Tonight feels like people now understand me, and my contribution is being valued.”

As the evening came to an end the eight (8) honourees with the exception of Diana Wilson-Swann and Urban Gibbs gathered around to cut the signature Kamalamee cake prepared by Wylma Bain.

Next up on the Organization’s agenda is the well anticipated Tribute Concert and Kamalamee after party, which is set to take place November 17, 2012 at the Regency Theatre, tickets are $50.00.  The event is said to be one filled with surprises because tradition will have it, that every year the complete list of the honourees friends who will introduce them will be kept unpublicized until the show is in progress, adding to the element of surprise.  The Organization can confirm that 45% of the guest speakers will be flown in and kept at a private location until the show begins and to top the evening off, all honourees and the audience will be entertained by music of the honourees likings, the music selection rages from: The IMC Choir, Apple Elliot Band, Rico Thompson, Grand Bahama Youth Choir, Kevin Tomlinson, LaShando Burnside and many more!
