Local law firm, Higgs & Johnson recently made a donation to the Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC) as the CIRC celebrates 50 years of service to the Cayman Islands.
A September to Remember is the title for the Cayman Islands Red Cross 50th anniversary celebrations.
The CIRC was established in 1961. Its initial goal was to assist community with hurricane preparation.
Since then it has been expanded and includes a number of humanitarian programmes such as first aid, a thrift shop, HIV awareness and disaster management.
Regional Managing Partner, Derek N. Jones said, “On behalf of the partners, I wish to congratulate the Cayman Islands Red Cross for 50 years of excellent service. We recognise that this would have not been possible without the consistent financial support from the corporate community. We wish the Red Cross continued success.”
There are a whole host of charitable events taking place for the half century celebration. Two of the biggest are the 14th annual, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC)-sponsored, Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC) Golf Tournament plus The Red, Gold & Soul Dinner and Dance held at The Westin.
The Golf Tournament will be swinging into action at the North Sound Club. There has been an extension to allow for three tee-off times to its growing popularity. This will be over a two-day period.
Tee-off times are Friday September 2nd at noon and Saturday September 3rd at 8am and 1pm.
The event will feature a four-man scramble format with a shotgun start. In addition, players can register for a chance to play nine holes with a celebrity Senior PPG Golf Pro, for an extra fee.
Professional Golfers Nick Price and Mark McNulty will be participating in the tournament.
The 50th Anniversary Dinner/Dance is another way for community members to show their support. The event will be held September 10 at the Westin Casaurina Hotel Cocktails at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner at 7pm.
Funds collected through both events will benefit the four main programme areas of the Red Cross.Pic: (L-R) Derek N Jones, Regional Managing Partner, Jondo Obi, CIRC’s Director and Chris Narborough, Partner.
