In memory of Brigo
Across the seas, calypso is also holding centre stage
tomorrow as the children of the late Brigo will cel-
ebrate his birthday in a special way in New Jersey,
USA. The children are being joined by Brigo's Cultural
Theatre Roots & Branches to hold a free show and
fair from noon.
Brigo's daughter Janeel Keisha Abraham said this
week: "Our mission is to protect the legacy of pas-
sion my father had for calypso as well as to celebrate
the numerous young artistes he helped nurture. We
are celebrating the life he lived and the lessons and
values he taught us.
"Beside lots of music and BBQ on sale, we will also
be giving food and clothing to the poor. We are deter-
mined to keep my father's music and legacy alive here
in North America, in T&T, and across the Caribbean."
A deed deserving of mention
Full kudos are well deserved by the past and current
student body and staff of Presentation College (San
Fernando) for going above and beyond to assist the
needy. In four short days they raised approximate-
ly $50,000 in cash and supplies for those adversely
affected by Tropical Storm Bret.
A spokesman for the group told Pulse this week:
"We have acquired mattresses, pillows, mops, brooms,
flashlights, disinfectants, canned goods, rice, flour,
legumes, snacks, water, tarpaulins, garbage bags, new
and clean used clothing (folded and sorted by gender
and size), disposable diapers and sanitary napkins.
"These items will be given to people living in the
Siparia and Penal/Debe regions and we will be guided
by their regional corps as to who receives supplies."
Also assisting the less fortunate were the delegates
ion this year's Miss TT World Pageant. On Friday,
at the Tea Party, Talent and Top Model Competi-
tion, auctioned a bottle of champagne for $8,600
and donated the proceeds to the San Fernando City
Corporation for distribution to the flood victims.
Party for a cause

tim Wendy Hector will be held at All Out Sports Bar,
