Sponsors support sea camp

CCMI Executive Council Member Nicoela McCoy, CCMI Executive Board Treasurer James O’Neill, and Little Cayman Research Centre Assistant Manager Timothy Collins recently met with the 2006 Caribbean Sea Camp sponsors, participants and parents at the CCMI Grand Cayman office at Whitehall House.

‘We are pleased to recognize our sponsors: CUC, Butterfield Bank, Cayman Airways, Bank Austria, Cayman National Bank, Red Sail Sports, Rotary Grand Cayman, and Progressive Distributors/Fosters Food Fair’ Ms McCoy said in a press release.

‘Fifteen youths have been selected to participate in this year’s program. Eleven are residents in the Cayman Islands who have been awarded merit-based scholarships while the other four are international students. This mix provides a wonderful intercultural experience for our kids,’ she said.

Treasurer Jim O’Neil remarked: ‘We are also pleased to announce the launching of our 2007 Coral Reef Education Fundraising Campaign. Our goal is to build the capacity of this dynamic Cayman Islands charity which is dedicated to sustaining the biodiversity of our tropical environment through research and education programs like the Caribbean Sea Camp.’

Ms McCoy thanked the camp sponsors for their contributions.

‘These companies have contributed financial resources and goods and services to enable us to include as many local children as possible this year.’
