Party benefits community

Dancehall fans will once again be rocking to their favourite rhythms on Cardinal Avenue in George Town tonight, but the evening will not all be about music and revelry.

Part proceeds from the Passa Passa street party will benefit two non-profit organizations, the Cayman Islands Student Association and Roma International football club. Both organizations are geared towards assisting young Caymanians.

Digicel is a sponsor of the event, which organisers say aims to break new ground in Cayman by filling the streets of George Town with crowds of dancehall fans eager to enjoy an evening of first-class entertainment.

The Cayman Islands Student Association will use funds raised through the event to assist young Caymanian students pursuing tertiary education, while Roma International football club will use the funds to maintain the development of their football programmes on the island.

‘It is always a pleasure to support an event that aims to assist young Caymanians in their academic and athletic endeavours,’ Digicel’s Marketing Manager Tina Trumbach said in a press release.

‘Education and sports are key in ensuring a well developed community, and we are proud to be involved in activities that promote academic and social advancement.’
