Light Up For Charity

In the spirit of giving, corporate Bahamas is being invited to “Light Up For

Charity” by either adorning the office building in the colour of the charity i.e. blue for Autism, Pink for Cancer; or sponsoring a showboat fundraiser for the preferred charitable organization that your company supports and enter it in the parade.  Tickets can be made available for purchase by patrons of the charity to enjoy the festivities on the sea while supporting a worthy cause, as is the tradition at Christmas.
