Exco Levi to Receive the Denise Jones Legacy Award

On Saturday, May 25th, the Toronto Harbour’s Palais Royale will host a significant event in the world of arts and entertainment: the annual Jam-walk event by the Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation (HHJF). This year’s event holds special significance as Exco Levi, a five-time JUNO award winner, will be honored with the inaugural Denise Jones Legacy Award.

Exco Levi, renowned for his contributions to the arts and his dedication to promoting Caribbean culture in Canada, perfectly embodies the spirit of the Denise Jones Legacy Award. This accolade is designed to recognize individuals who, like Denise Jones, have had a profound impact on their community through their passion for the arts and their commitment to spreading positivity and cultural knowledge. The HHJF believes Exco Levi is a fitting first recipient, given his outstanding achievements and influence in the industry.

The Jam-walk event, a 5km walk followed by a brunch, brings together HHJF board members, sponsors, participants, and volunteers to raise funds for educational access in Jamaica. This event not only celebrates the contributions of remarkable individuals but also underscores the Foundation’s ongoing mission to support education in some of Jamaica’s most vulnerable communities.

Denise Jones, whose legacy is being honored, was a pivotal figure in the development of HHJF. Her 15 years of tireless service on the Board and her infectious passion for education made her a dedicated champion for the cause. The Denise Jones Legacy Award is a tribute to her enduring impact and her unwavering commitment to providing educational opportunities for Jamaican children.

As Exco Levi receives this award, it marks a moment of recognition for both his contributions and the lasting influence of Denise Jones. The event promises to be a celebration of culture, community, and the continuous efforts to uplift and educate future generations.
