The first event in the Everyone’s a Winner with The Best Dressed Chicken Road Race Series was successfully held last Sunday at Hope Gardens, with benefit partner, the Diabetes Association of Jamaica, hosting a series of check-ups using newly donated equipment from The Best Dressed Chicken, which includes wheelchairs, cholesterol machines, body mass index (BMI) scale and an echocardiogram (ECG) machine.

J. Patterson (right), former Prime Minister and former Member of Parliament for Eastern Westmoreland looks on. The presentation took place on Monday, April 24 at Heis Consults, in the R. Danny Williams Building, New Kingston. The funds donated by the Jamaica Broilers Group will go towards the rebuilding of the Clifton Boys Home in Darliston, Westmoreland, which has been destroyed by fire. Since then the boys have been housed at the Assemblies of Holiness Church, in the adjoining district of Caledonia.
It was a lot more than bun and cheese at the senior citizens’ Easter treat hosted by the Jamaica Broilers Group (JBG) at its Best Dressed Chicken (BDC) Sports Club in Spring Village, St. Catherine. It was a time of fun, food, and story-telling by the elders about the times long before BDC set up its processing plant in the area. Most of them worked at the plant until their retirement.
If you happen to be driving towards the GC Foster College of Physical Education and Sport from the Spanish Town bypass in St Catherine on a Friday or Saturday afternoon, it is highly likely that a few metres before getting to the institution, something will hit you. You will spot a blue, black and yellow Best Dressed Chicken jerk stand, smoke- emitting silver jerk pans, a blue tarpaulin, seats and people lined up — all this to behold at the entrance of Villmore Gardens on the right side of the roadway.
The Best Dressed Chicken Fun In The Son, which celebrated its 14th staging in 2016, won the award for Most Rated Event of The Year. Produced by Glory Music and sponsored by Jamaica Broilers Group, last year’s show at National Heroes Park in Kingston attracted a massive crowd who saw performances from Donnie McClurkin, Evangelist Andrew Palau, Carlene Davis, Papa San, Kevin Downswell, Rondell Positive and Judith Gayle.
