“We are pleased to have Ziggy and his organization as a sponsor for this event. U.R.G.E. and COTC have compatible goals as we are both raising funds to provide educational support, supplies and health services to children who reside in Caribbean. Ziggy, the son of the legendary artist, Bob Marley, has committed to giving back through U.R.G.E, which seeks to make enduring contributions to the lives of children in Jamaica, Africa, and throughout the world. Our goals are naturally aligned and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
