IMG_2392Taste of Cayman is the Cayman Islands Tourism Association’s [CITA] largest annual fundraiser; however CITA, a not-for-profit, finds a way to share the proceeds by giving back to other charities. This year CITA chose the Cayman Islands Crisis Center [CICC] as the charity to host at Taste of Cayman. Patrons at the event had the opportunity to donate cash or unused tickets into the CICC donations boxes. Through these donations the CICC earned $1615.53 total!
Tiffany Dixon-Ebanks Executive Director at CITA said “We are so thrilled to help the Cayman Islands Crisis Center. Many of us take for granted the safety and security we have in our family and relationships. The services that the Crisis Center provides can save lives, and we are so happy to be a part of that.”
Ania Milanowska-Sedgley, Executive Director of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre said “Taste of Cayman is a wonderful family event and we are very happy that this year CITA has chosen us to be the beneficiary of it. We truly enjoyed the partnership with TOC and the event itself. Domestic violence affects the whole family and only by working together we can eradicate it from our community. Thank you for this opportunity to raise much needed funds and awareness.”
The proceeds the CICC earned will help cover their operating costs, which help, shelter, cloth, and feed victims of domestic abuse.
CITA has had a charity at every Taste of Cayman, and looks forward to helping a new charity at the event next year.
CITA is pleased to announce that Taste of Cayman 2017 will be on January 28th 2017. CITA has already started planning for the event, and hopes to make it bigger and better than 2016. Please stay tuned to
CITA’s Facebook page and the Taste of Cayman Facebook page for more information.
