REIGNING beauty queens Kaci Fennell, Miss Universe Jamaica, and Laurie-Ann Chin, Miss Jamaica World, will be among guest performers at the ‘Powerful Women and Men Perform for Charity’ show at the Karl Hendrickson Auditorium at Jamaica College in St Andrew, on Sunday.

Show times are 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

Now in its 15th year, the charity event was conceptualised by Thyra Heaven to raise much-needed funds for the Mustard Seed Communities.

So far, $44 million has been raised.

“It has been a tremendous success. In fact, I am pleasantly surprised and gratified as to the response from a wide cross section of people who come to watch the show each year. The aim of the planning committee and all the performers is to do as much as we can to help the disabled and HIV-affected children in the care of Mustard Seed Communities. And there is great joy in our giving, so we are as blessed as the children whom we serve. Also, I am pleased to see that each year an increasing number of people want to participate and volunteer their services to put on the show, and for that we are so grateful,” Heaven told Jamaica Observer.

Headed by Monsignor Father Gregory Ramkisson, Mustard Seed Communities cares for children with serious physical and mental disabilities.

“Rehearsals are in full gear as the cast and crew get ready to unveil another exciting show and an evening of great entertainment. I am thrilled with the variety of acts and the number of exciting new performers this year,” said Weston Haughton, show producer.
