Jazz Ball set

This February sees the beginning of the new Chinese Year of the Pig and to help Cayman celebrate in style, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has organized its second annual fundraising ball, a press release says.

This year’s ball is being held on Saturday, 3 February, in the grounds of a large private property in Patrick’s Island. This stunning seafront location, together with a fabulous backdrop of the Far East – professionally designed by Lions Productions – should help to create an unforgettable evening.

The event promises to be even better than last year’s, organisers say, with a delectable oriental style menu being designed by Ragazzi’s and an open bar to help celebrate the festivities.

There will be an opportunity to bid on lots in the silent and live auctions including a not to be missed Notebook computer donated by Alphasoft, specially commissioned art work by Dora Williams and Chris Mann, as well as jewellery from Colombian Emeralds International and Island Companies.

The evening’s festivities will kick off with a bubbly start at 6.30pm and the arrival of especially flown in guest performers. Later. Jazz and dancing should keep revellers bopping late into the night.

Last year, the Trust’s Jazz Club Raided Ball was a sell out event, raising CI$37,000.

Tickets are CI$145 per person and include a four course meal and open bar. Interested parties should call 939-6003 to reserve a table. Tables are available for parties of six, eight or 10. Dress is black tie or Chinese theme. All guests born in the year of the pig, who bring along proof, will receive a special piggy goody bag!

When is being called ‘a pig’ a compliment? When you are born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983 or 2007! According to Chinese traditions you are highly respected for your chivalry and pureness of heart and make friends for life.
