“We are ending summer 2018 on a high note and we couldn’t think of a better way to do it than to award one lucky Digicel customer at Harbour Fest with $100K as the final winner in our Set Fi Di Summa promotion. With over four thousand winners in the overall promotion, we are happy to have helped to fulfil the dreams of so many Digicel customers,” said Elon Parkinson, Public Relations and Communications Manager at Digicel.
