Posh begins fundraising campaign for Carnival 50   | THE DAILY HERALD


PHILIPSBURG–Posh Productions, as the producers of the Carnival pageants for Carnival 50, has launched a campaign to raise funds needed for their pageants and prizes. The organization said on Sunday, “The not-for-profit foundation kicks off their fundraiser frenzy with a Halloween special entitled ‘Fright Night’ at Emilio Wilson Park on Halloween night, October 31, at 8:00pm.”

The evening will consist of the feature the film “The Conjuring” on a 16-foot inflatable outdoor screen. There is a US $5 cover charge at the gate and there will be various eats, drinks and treats on sale for guests to enjoy while viewing the film.

Another facet of the foundation’s fundraising campaign is PoshOlogy 2019, all-men and all-women calendars. Posh is currently selling ad spaces for the business community to have an opportunity to reach the masses with 1,500 copies of the 2019 all-male or all-female 12-month calendars. Posh is asking company decision-makers to support it with this venture as it works to secure funding.

Professionals and experts who can be of service to the 2019 pageant contestants are encouraged to advertise their services with the Posh in its pageant guide, which will be presented to the 30 registrants spread over the five tiers of pageants produced for 2019. “Posh recognizes the need for the arts, fashion and beauty industries to connect on the pageant platform. Posh aims to expand the industry of pageantry and thus works to structure all key players for success,” said Posh on Sunday.

For the golden year of Carnival, Posh said it is adamant that students should be a part of the cultural event. The registration for elementary and high schools has been extended for them to register King and Queen representatives.

“Posh believes the participation of schools is a team-building and united activity for the students, teachers, faculty and staff. Each school shall gather to help their representatives prepare for the preliminary shows like the Posh Interview Debate Competition, the Sportswear competition and then the final competitions which will be held in March 2019,” the organisation said.

All parents, schools and school boards are encouraged to support this initiative and to register their Kings and Queens by or before Friday, November 2.

Posh plans to launch more fundraiser events and activities over the next few months for the public and business communities to support.
