What Angel Foundation said about Elayne’s hosting skills:
DJ Elayne on Saturday 28 April 2018 at the Cumberland Hotel was amazing. Elayne presented my charity event with passion and had clearly done her research as she was able to talk about my charity’s 7 years of activity in Jamaica in great detail. My Sponsors Grace Foods, Victoria Mutual Building Society along with my high profile guests including Shaun Wallace & other TV stars were so impressed with Elayne Smith’s hosting skills that I will no longer be able to work with any other host!!
Thank you in Elayne Smith from the bottom of my heart for making my event such a success.
