The fifth annual 70s, 80s, 90s fund-raising retro reunion party staged by the old boys' associations of some of the island's top boys' schools is scheduled for this Friday at Constant Spring Golf Club in St Andrew.

The event, originally dubbed Three the Hard Way, has been presented by Kingston College, Jamaica College, and Calabar since 2015. A few years later it was expanded to incorporate the old boys from Wolmer's and St George's College. This year, Munro College has been included and the party is now named Three the Hard Way and Friends.

The party is a joint fund- raiser aimed at helping students at the participating schools with fees, books, uniforms, lunch, and other support.

The six schools will be represented by a line-up of old- boy DJs including DJ Smurf, Krazy Kris, DJ Venom, Dr Dre, Marlon Young, Squeeze, and the Captain Collin Hines.

“Tickets are $1,500 and are available at any of the old boy's associations and from Extras Mall Plaza,” the group said in a news release.

“Three the Hard Way and Friends is a clean, wonderful, well-organised musical experience that delights fans every year. But best of all, it is for a truly worthy cause as we continue to do our part to uplift our young men,” said Keith Whyte, former president of Calabar Old Boys' Association and one of the original founders of the event.

Explaining that old boys' support goes much further than the trophies and sporting accolades at their respective alma maters, the group said that each association had long recognised that one cannot care about the welfare of their schools unless they also care about the welfare of the boys. As such, they have all made welfare and academic support major priorities.

The old boys have also realised that unity is strength and have set aside their sporting rivalries to collaborate on a number of initiatives aimed at improving their respective schools.
