The event has outgrown its traditional venue in the Promenade Gardens and this year was held at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
GT&T’s CEO R.K Sharma welcomed patrons to the event and noted the significance of this Goodwill signature event especially at this time of year.
GT&T, he says, in addition to its core business, has lived up to its many corporate and social responsibilities and has become more than a household name. The company has made significant contributions in the areas of Sports, National Events, Culture and National Development as a whole.
The CEO endorses the universal feeling of brotherhood, joy and giving in keeping with the spiritual observance of Christmas.
He noted that during the year the company continued to offer goodwill and reward its customers in various ways including its competitive cellular rates with its After 2 promotion, enhanced DSL speed at no additional cost, reduced roaming rates with no subscription and more recently its initiative to request of the Public Utilities Commission approval to reduce international calls by 80%.
Mr. Sharma said to top it all off, in the good spirit of Christmas, the company has provided the opportunity for its customers to win millions of cash for the Christmas Holidays, the grand drawing for which takes place on Monday, live on radio.
Despite the inclement weather hundreds of children showed up for the cultural programme and were notably excited as demonstrated by their jubilant reaction to the performances and gifts received.
