The Bahamas positioning itself for home run deal with New York Yankees

NEW YORK CITY, New York — The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is looking to ‘get on base’ with the New York Yankees, seeking a partnership with the popular Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

The two sides recently began exploratory discussions on cobranding efforts that would expose millions of baseball fans to The Islands of The Bahamas brand. Director of Sports Tourism Greg Rolle led a team of sports representatives to New York to meet with New York Yankee executives Tuesday evening.

“New York is one of our major target markets and if we can establish a relationship with the Yankees that will help us penetrate the market, it could result in a boost in our visitor numbers,” Rolle said.

The Bahamas delegation also consisted of Minister of Youth, Sports, and Culture Danny Johnson, Ministry of Tourism Sports Marketing Executive Jeff Rodgers, and Senator Greg Burrows.

According to Minister Johnson, a partnership with the Yankees would be The Islands of The Bahamas on a different playing field from competitors.

“The New York Yankees has 3.4 million people attending their games per year, and have about 25 million people in the tri-state area who are fans of the franchise. Putting the brand of The Bahamas along with the Yankees brand would give us a world class platform to attract more visitors,” Johnson said.

CIBC FirstCaribbean Managers Lorraine Johnson and Duquesa Dean enlist the help of their young assistants at the CIBC FirstCaribbean Car Wash and dollar-drive to raise funds for the cure.

NASSAU, Bahamas — Sister-to-Sister Breast Cancer Support Group, The Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative Foundation, and the Cancer Societies in Abaco, Eleuthera, Grand Bahama and New Providence will all benefit from the funds raised at the CIBC First Caribbean’s 5th Annual “Walk for the Cure” on Sunday October 5th from Goodman’s Bay at 7 a.m.

In the lead up to the event CIBC management and staff have scheduled a multitude of team building and fund-raising events to benefit local Cancer research and care organisations.

Since August, bank employees have been engaged in on and off-site fund raising activities nation-wide to add to the donations that will be raised from the “Walk for the Cure” event on October 5th.

The Bank kicked off the fundraising activities with a weekly jeans-day fundraiser, where every casual Friday until the Walk for the Cure, employees, for a small contribution, could wear jeans to work to show their support.

A dash of fun and panache was added when male-employees were invited to enter to win a, “Real Men Wear Pink” photo competition. Male employees dressed to impress in their best pink outfits and submitted a photo in exchange for a small donation.
