Golfers support the Red Cross

Golf lovers can help a charity on Saturday and maybe earn themselves $10,000 in the process.

After a two week delay due to hurricane Dean, Mezza will finally tee off its first annual golf open on 1 September at Britannia. Up to 80 golfers are set to take the course to win over $13,000 dollars in prizes. The Heineken sponsored event will have a huge range of prizes including a Dell computer, a Bose sound system, Ben Hogan clubs, gift certificates from local restaurants and a $10,000 hole in one. Prizes will also be awarded to golfers that could use a little practice. Jacques Scott and Britannia have donated large amounts of product, apparel and rounds of golf to the winning teams of the most honest golfers aka ‘highest score’ award, the best dressed foursome award and the highest bar tab award.

Mezza’s head chef Clarence Pinto has created a special buffet for the award ceremony that is an exact replica of Britannia’s executive course. Utilising some of Mezza’s signature dishes the edible landscape will be centre piece of what will be a long talked about social event.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Cayman Islands Red Cross. Scott Mclean, Marketing Director for Mezza said ‘With friends and family still displaced from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and with the close call of Hurricane Dean I realise first hand the importance of the Red Cross. The steps they take to ensure everyone’s safety is admirable. The entire staff at Mezza applaud their efforts and hope to generate a lot of money during the event to show our support.

‘During the open we are also promoting the official tenth annual golf tournament for the Cayman Islands Red Cross sponsored by Royal Bank of Canada on 16 September.’

There are still a few slots available for Saturday’s Mezza open. It’s a four man scramble with an 11am shotgun start at Britannia. The CI$100.00 per-person charge includes greens fees, cart rental, and a huge award banquet immediately after the event at Mezza. For more information or RSVP please call 924-0276 and join the fun.
