Media Release June 15, 2010

On Tuesday 15th June, at a media launch held in Hilton Trinidad and Conference Centre, First Citizens officially joined forces with the Basia Survivor Network in an initiative to help women who survive breast cancer.

This initiative, called the “Beat Breast Cancer Music Festival”, aims to provide financial assistance to women affected by breast cancer and those in need of CT/PET scans and reconstructive surgery.

First Citizens Deputy CEO, Ms. Sharon Christopher, in her remarks congratulated both Alicia and Ricardo Powell on this initiative as it would also inform the public that breast cancer is curable and beatable.

In her address, she stated that “First Citizens is proud to be associated with the Basia Survivor Network. As women continue to make significant inroads into every aspect of our society, it has become our social responsibility as a corporate citizen to address the issues which affect women.”

The “Beat Breast Cancer Music Festival” is a charity event which would be showcased throughout the Caribbean on 31st October 2010 aimed at raising TT$3 million. First Citizens encourages the public to support this initiative as your help would assist women in dealing with, getting support and beating this disease.
