The prestigious annual Bula Festival which remains the only unbroken festival in the country has received a substantial sponsorship worth $40k from mobile giants Digicel.
While handing over the sponsorship cheque to the festival committee at the Grand Melanesian Hotel on Wednesday, May 7, Digicel Fiji’s director commercial Andrew Skelton said the company is proud to be associated with an event which brings people from all walks of life together for charity and entertainment.
He said Digicel will continue to support the festival in future and thanked the hardworking committee members for continuing the festival for the past 54-years.
Mr Skelton said Digicel is proud to be supporting such events while being actively involved in the promotions of various sporting activities in the country as well.
Being the largest annual event in the western division, this year’s festival will be held from August 2 – 9 at Koroivolu Park and Prince Charles Park respectively.
While addressing guests, Bula Festival Association president Mohammed Hafiz said the festival will continue to raise funds for the needy and noble causes.
He said the festival has come a long way from its humble beginning 54-years-ago and has stood strong in difficult times.
The committee is also inviting other co-sponsors to come forward and support the event.
