(STGCOBAFL) and The Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc. (JCOBAFL) has announced their twelfth Annual True Blue celebration, set for April 1st to 2nd.
The True Blue weekend is an expansion of the annual Ziadie Cup soccer match between STGCOBAFL and the JCOBAFL. The annual match is held in memory of Dennis Ziadie, who coached both schools to Manning Cup victories. With last year’s match drawing over 1700 spectators and supporters, this year’s event will also include a festive fundraising True Blue Party featuring DJ Radcliffe, set for April 1st, starting 8 pm at the Grand Palms Resort in Pembroke Pines. The True Blue Soccer Fest will begin April 2nd, including the 12th Annual Dennis Ziadie Cup soccer match (JC vs. St. Georges), the Dennis Ziadie Youth Soccer Tournament and the All Girls/Co-Ed Schools Alumni Penalty Kick-off. The Soccer Fest will be held at Vizcaya Park in Miramar, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We are extremely excited about this year’s events,” said Xavier Murphy, president of the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida. “This annual fundraising events give us the opportunity to provide scholarships to JC and STGC high school students, while honoring the legacy of Dennis Ziadie.”
