NEW YORK, USA — The Montego Bay High School Alumnae Association of New York (MBHSAA of NY) hosted its 2nd annual fund-raising events recently with over 500 Montego Bay High School (MBHS) alumnae storming New York city to reconnect.

The highlight of the event was celebrating their distinguished alumna Rev Rose Hudson-Wilkin, chaplain to the Queen of England and the House of Commons, whose journey from her humble background in Montego Bay to her current role at Westminster Abby and The House of Commons, was highlighted.

The reunion weekend began with a reception to honour Rev Hudson-Wilkin, followed by a benefit ball at Maestros, a church service and culminated with a farewell brunch.

According to Merlene Mullings, president of MBHSAA of NY, the goal of this year's fund-raising efforts was to raise funds to assist the Montego Bay High School in building additional classrooms and a study room to accommodate Grade 11 and 12 students.

"New York was the perfect setting for our Second Annual Benefit Ball and Fund-raising weekend," Mullings said.

"We have a large number of alumnae living in the tri-state area and I was delighted with the outpouring of support from as far away as London, Grand Cayman, Canada, Jamaica, and the Bahamas," she added.
