blink | bmobile adds festive flair to UWI’s big ‘25’

UWI Fete's along with its sponsor blink-bmobile celebrate a 25th anniversary in 2015

2015 marked the 25th edition of the acclaimed Carnival staple known as the UWI Fete. On hand at the famous University of the West Indies all inclusive, was the fete’s longtime sponsor, blink | bmobile (which also celebrates a 25th anniversary this year) to add its unique, festive flair to the event which raises funds for the UWI Development & Endowment Fund.

With the theme of ‘Welcome Home’, the 2015 edition of the fete was a celebration of all things local. The creative organizers highlighted the lifestyle, cuisine and culture of the twin island republic and delivered an event which was full of energy, enjoyment and memorable moments.

The popular blink | bmobile booth was erected adjacent to grounds of the Campus Principal’s Office and gave UWI fete patrons a perfect place to relax in between all the party action. Most notably those in the booth never missed any of the onstage activity as it featured live streams of performances on both of the fete’s main stages. This year’s red, white and black infused event featured performances by the Roy Cape AllStars, KI and 3veni, Dil-E-Nadan and a pulsating set by Monk Monté himself Machel Montano.

This year’s UWI fete menu included dishes which represented T&T’s unique melting pot of cultures e.g. Chinese cuisine, Authentic Indian food, Middle Eastern meat skewers, gourmet Spanish Tacos and of course all the local delicacies that seasoned fetters have come to appreciate and anticipate.

With premium food and beverage options and an onslaught of entertainment to satisfy many musical cravings, the event attracted a massive crowd which consisted of local politicians, media personalities and the nation’s feting elite.

Since 1990 this annual all inclusive has been the flagship fundraising initiative for the UWI Development & Endowment Fund (that awards scholarships and bursaries to undergraduates).

In addition to being a top local cultural sponsor, blink | bmobile is a staunch supporter of the nation’s education sector and is committed to providing assistance to this event and its noble cause of providing scholarships for UWI’s students.
