Successful first staging for Devon House Premier Fund-raiser

Two hundred and fifty guests gathered on the East Lawn at Devon House for the staging of the property’s premier fund-raising event dubbed “Heritage Feast” held on Thursday October 2, 2003 as a show of their support for on-going efforts to develop Devon House as a prime heritage tourism attraction.

The black tie affair brought together the best of Jamaican cuisine, music, and art unveiling the first of several spectacular events of its kind to be staged at the one hundred and twenty two-year-old property. Devon House “Heritage Feast” was hosted in recognition of the need to enhance the image of the property as a national monument, and to contribute to heritage development and preservation in Jamaica. The underlying theme for the event brought into focus the role that Devon House is playing to boost heritage tourism in Kingston.
