Johnnie Walker Be A Giant Event

Last evening I was pleased to be invited to the Johnnie Walker "Giants of T&T" VIP after party at Brian Lara's residence. Hosted by Sir Vivian Richards and Shaka Hislop, two sporting "giants", the event was part of the Johnnie Walker promotion to encourage responsible drinking with their "Be A Giant Don’t Drink and Drive" campaign. For the past four years Sir Vivian Richards has been an ambassador for Johnnie Walker promoting responsible drinking in the Caribbean he is now joined by Shaka Hislop legendary goal keeper and ESPN commentator in this task of communicating the don't drink and drive message in Trinidad and Tobago. The Be A Giant campaign will become part of Johnnie Walker’s global Walk with Giants program.

To pledge support you can join the Johnnie Walker Facebook Page; one lucky fan who pledged to not drink and drive won the chance to bowl the first ceremonial ball at yesterday's cricket match, Digicel Pearls T20 against India, at the Queen’s Park Oval, VIP tickets to watch the game with Sir Vivian and Shaka Hislop and was also a special guest at the VIP after party.

Lots of local celebrities and socialites were at the event including former Miss Trinidad and Tobago Universe Latoya Woods and the current Miss Trinidad and Tobago World Lee Ann Forbes, pictured below with Peter Elias, fashion designer and section leader in TRIBE. Of course I used the opportunity to "talk shop" and managed to wrangle a teeny bit of information on TRIBE's theme for Carnival 2012, however you will just have to wait a while longer for the official confirmation as the theme has been changed twice so far. Suffice to say we can expect a FABULOUS costume from Peter Elias once again.

Eddie Seow of YUMA was also at the event and when pressed for a possible launch date all he gave me was "August" but he did intimate that costumes from YUMA are already finished and if I thought costumes this year were great wait until I see NEXT year's costumes! Oh yes, I am dying to see!
