Wha gwan? The Great Shape! Jamaican Yard Party, that’s wha gwan! And to that we say, mi dea! In Jamaica, a yard party is a family celebration, dancing in the “yard” with your neighbors, a good time had by all… and we can’t think of a better way to gather community and raise some much needed financial support for our Great Shape! projects in Jamaica.
Families helping families and a rockin’ good time!
… Music by DJ Marco to help you feel irie, Jamaican BBQ (Jerk anyone??), Caribbean carnival for the kids, silent and live auctions — come ready to bid on your favorite auction items with Auctioneer Bryon Millard. Plus, what’s a yard party without our famous Jamaican Rum Punch?
Yard Party proceeds support Great Shape! Inc.’s humanitarian projects: literacy (SuperKids), eye care (iCare), and dental care (1,000 Smiles) in rural Jamaica.

Artist by day, Concierge by night.
Fun facts: I love karaoke, but I hate going because I don’t want to wait three to four hours before my name is finally called. 2) When I “grow up” I want to make a living as an artist and paint pretty pictures all day long.
