KINGSTON, Jamaica - Barbadian Ryan Braithwaite took the 110 metre hurdles in a season’s best 13.19 as Jamaica’s Dwight Thomas finished down the track at the New York Diamond League Saturday.
Second was Orlando Ortega of Cuba (13.24) with Russian Sergey Shubenkov (13.29) in third.
Lynette Chin-McDaniel, executive agent at Sagicor Life Jamaica, was honoured Monday last by her friend of over 25 years Lorraine Fung for an impressive 36 years in the field of insurance. The Cater-In Salut! dinner party for the proud mother of two also celebrated her daughter Tiffany’s recent graduation from the University of Technology. The exclusive guest list included Sagicor executives Richard Byles, president and CEO and Mark Chisholm, vice-president in Sales — Individual Life Division, as well as Chin-McDaniel’s client of 36 years Lorraine Williams.
Dawn Leyow and Tiffany McDaniel of DEC Events transformed the dining and cocktail area by using colourful lighting, oversized table fixtures and fabric draped beautifully across the ceiling to give the area a Mediterranean feel. Caterer Lorraine Fung prepared a sumptuous Mediterranean-themed dinner, excellently paired with wines and champagnes by Observer’s wine expert Christopher Reckord. Pastry Chef Nicole Shirley created the celebratory cake as well as the desserts. Thursday Life shares an exclusive peek.
