Proceeds will be used for the purchase of land for a Little Cayman Iguana Sanctuary and for the building of a handicap ramp at the Trust Visitors Centre in Little Cayman.

Peter Hillenbrand was the auctioneer and Betty Bua was the auction chairman assisted by Karen and Pete Linn, Janet Freemantle, Marcia Ortner, Lynn and Terry Lock and others.

Items for the auction were donated by local individuals and businesses and many repeat visitors to Little Cayman.

Ms. Valda Scott prepared delicious local food for purchase during the silent auction.

Trust general manager Frank Roulstone expressed his admiration for Gladys and her team: ‘They continually show us what can be done by a very small group of people with very limited resources and have proven that they can make this event even more successful each year. The money raised here stays here and people who love Little Cayman support the Trust’s involvement in the community.’

Gladys Howard, chairman of the Little Cayman National Trust thanked those who donated items and also those who attended the auction and bid with such enthusiasm. ‘There are even better things to come,’ she promised.
