Equity Bank And Trust Bahamas continues to believe in fostering growth in the economy and paying it forward by supporting many charitable initiatives, events and balls

Equity has been proud a sponsor of: Kingdor National Parkinson Foundation Gala Ball; Bahamian Carifta Swim Team; Gentlemen’s Club for the development of young men by way of a participant; Bahamian Junkanoo-Pop Star Julien Believe in his journey to China where he performed at the Miss Universe Pageant representing the Bahamas; and of Bahamian Fashion Designer Theodore Elyett as he impacts the world through fashion.

Additionally, Equity again hosted its annual charitable art exhibit this year entitled The Equity Bank And Trust Bahamas 3rd Annual All We Need Is Art Charitable Exhibit, which was held on Saturday April 13th 2019 between 2pm and 6pm in the bank’s breathtaking open atrium at Equity Trust House in Caves Village, Nassau, The Bahamas. The exhibition attracted many affluent Bahamian art collectors.

“We are very grateful to the exceptionally talented and passionate local artists who enrich the culture of The Bahamas. We hope to continue to encourage creativity and innovation. Moreover, many discerning investors consider art a part of the asset mix for the preservation of value,” said Ivylyn Cassar, Equity’s Chairman. “And at this time of year, Equity and our supporting artists for the event couldn’t think of a more appropriate cause to support than the Marco Alert Project for the detection and prevention of missing children. May God strengthen the families affected by such travesties. “Artists exclusively benefit from sales save for a portion of the proceeds being donated to assist as much as possible with the creation of a technology platform for the viral broadcasting of missing children and the quick capturing and dissemination of any leads into their discovery.”

In the past Equity Bank Bahamas Limited’s Art Exhibit has sponsored hurricane efforts in the wake of Hurricane Matthew which caused considerable damage to parts of The Bahamas, and to the Ranfurly Homes for Children. ■
