The ‘Exquisitely Yours, Orlando’ event held at the Embassy Suites in Altamonte Springs, fully depicted this underlying philosophy of the company, Break Away Moments and hosted by Sandy Issacs.

The very classy presentation which included a cocktail hour in the atrium of the hotel where waterfalls, lush tropical foliage, steel drum pan sounds produced by Mello Vibes Steel Drum Band, hors d’oeuvres such as curry glazed chicken drummettes, jerk chicken wings, cocktail patties, jumbo shrimp cooked in Red Stripe beer, Caribbean fruit and vegetable trays with Jamaican rum punch and more, served to enhance the existing atmosphere and added to to this fabulous occassion. Guests showed their appreciation with smiles and glee as they mixed and mingled in style!

Kaye Chong of Air Jamaica’s Community Relations, Christopher Wright as Rep. of Jamaica Tourist Board, Wesley Kirton of Central Florida Caribbean Sun newspaper, Keith Gooden of Carusa Consulting Services, Pancho Alphanso Hines of WOKB 1600 AM radio, Maxwell Sinclair of 94.5 FM radio, Ashley Beauchamp, Miss.Orlando Caribbean 2006 pageant winner, Heather Chisholm, Coordinator of the Miss. Orlando Caribbean Pageant, and other significant community members, were among the guest attendees at this ‘exquisite’ function.

Touches of the Caribbean, portrayed by Break Away Moments displays, Air Jamaica and Jamaica Tourist Board exhibits and material, the incorporation of Clover Batts’ presentation of ‘De Marketplace’ Jamaican Folk Song (of which Orlando’s beloved Pancho played a part to highlight the evening), and along with the sweet sound sensations of DJ Charlie Brown when the event progressed into the banquet room, all added to the delight of this terrific event. Caribbean View TV was there to to capture it all on camera as well as, to conduct some interivews, and segments from this function were already aired on CVTV Brigthouse Channel 21.
