Over one hundred women were wowed once again when Central Football Club hosted its third annual Treat Her Like A Lady even last Thursday at the Hilton Hotel in Port of Spain.

Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited, Super Industrial Services (SIS), Toyota, and Banker's Insurance were among a long list of sponsors that supported the gala event hosted by the Pro League club along with the support of the Powerful Ladies of Trinidad and Tobago (PLOTT).

The event, which also raises money for the Rape Crisis Society, had the female guests enjoy a relaxing but entertaining night of wining and dining while being chaperoned by Central FC players and male staff members.

Entertainment included performances by Melanie James, of the International Performers Guild; skills and even tips from Caribbean football joggling champion Marc Thomas, who will contest the World title next year; and the Los Ninos de Subero parang band.

Central FC’s Managing Director, Brent Sancho, described Thursday’s event as the "best yet".

“We had all of the usual ingredients, plus some added spice," he said.  “Not only did we set a new record of raising funds for the Rape Crisis Society but the event itself has become more fun, with even more entertainment and lots of goodies to make our guests feel [pampered].”

Meanwhile Marketing Manager at the Couva based-football club, Devica Ali, said that while there is the focus of raising money for the Rape Crisis Society, the event also serves as a two-fold benefit for Central FC.

“Many of the most influential Trinidad and Tobago business women are not particularly aware of Central FC and the large number of community projects that we carry out each year,” explained Ali. “So this gives us the chance to showcase the work we do, and, hopefully gain their support. The second aim is to parade our players as role models to encourage the men in our communities to cherish the women in their lives and ‘treat them like a lady’ as much as possible.”
