Tortola, British Virgin Islands, April 6, 2010 –  Winners at the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival 2010 were not just on the water but shore-side too.

Mr Maxim Pazos, head of corporate banking and country manager for event Gold sponsor, FirstCaribbean International Bank, invited Premier Ralph T. O’Neal to draw the names of two individuals to each win a $500 deposit account with the bank. Mr Roosevelt Smith and Ms Shawndell Woodroffe were named as the successful entrants of the fourth annual free raffle offered by the bank at the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival. The drawing was made at the start of the awards ceremony on Sunday, April 4.

The raffle was open to all qualifying entrants including existing clients and non account holders. The free initiative was promoted at the BVI Spring Regatta Village, Nanny Cay from Thursday through Saturday.

“There was a good buzz about the Regatta Village this year,” said Mr Pazos. “We had an enthusiastic team of bank staff that volunteered their time to interact with visitors to the Village and to promote the raffle.  As a financial institution, we are pleased that through our sponsorship of this great event, we are able to add an extra dimension to our commitment to enriching our community members’ lives. It is our hope that this raffle will do just that by providing a surprise booster to the pocket book.”

The winners, who are both residents of the BVI, will have to adhere to the compliance and disclosure requirements of the bank to successfully open the deposit account.

FirstCaribbean also added to the festive celebration at the Village with an Easter treats basket at their tent and providing prizes for the adult Easter Egg hunt held on Sunday.

FirstCaribbean International Bank has been a sponsor of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival since 2004.
