Hurricane Ivan ribbons a hit

The sale of Hurricane Ivan ribbons started with a bang this week with a US$10,000 donation.

President of Kensington Management Group, Mike Gibbs, made the presentation on behalf of Community Assurance Company, the Cayman-based captive insurance company of WellStar Health System.

WellStar’s director, Mr Sam Bishop, is a regular visitor to Cayman and donated the money after seeing the damage caused by the hurricane.

‘He was extremely moved by the devastation and wanted to offer his support,’ said Mr Gibbs.

All proceeds from ribbon sales will go towards the Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund.

Any volunteers who would like to assist with their sale may contact Melenie Mylrea at 244-2425 or email her at [email protected]

The ribbons will also be on sale at local businesses, retail outlets, banks and the Government Administration Building.
