The Cayman Islands Cancer Society is hosting their newest fundraising event, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, on Sunday 7 December
The event is presented in association with Baptist Health South Florida, Celebrations, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman and Tiffany & Co.
The breakfast will begin at 9.30am on the Great Lawn of the Ritz-Carlton, and will be a morning of health, education, fashion, food and fun. It will be a great opportunity for friends to rest, relax and socialize, before the rush of the Christmas season begins, and enjoy a champagne breakfast as well.
Some of the highlights of the event will be a fashion show produced by Silhouette Boutique featuring a collection of day and evening gowns from Europe accompanied by jewellery from Tiffany & Co.
Sarah Medlicott, Store Manager of Tiffany & Co, said, ‘We here at Tiffany will continue to support worthy causes such as the Cancer Society. Cancer is a disease that unfortunately has touched us all in some shape or form be it through a family member, friend, colleague, child or a personal battle. It is important to continue to spread information and give support to others in their fight against this horrendous disease.’
Little Darlings will also present a selection of the latest children’s fashions for the holiday season.
The fashion show will provide gentlemen with inspiration for Christmas presents for the special ladies in their life.
The entire affair will be accented with décor by Celebrations with a ‘Tiffany’ theme.
Lisa McGinty, speaking on behalf of Celebrations, said, ‘We are aware of the outstanding work that our friends at the Cayman Cancer Society do all year round. We always endeavour to help them wherever possible and to support them with their fundraising events throughout the year.’
Dr. Michael Ozner, the author of the Miami Mediterranean Diet, is the keynote speaker and he will be the guest of Baptist Health South Florida. The diet, which is characterized by whole grains and legumes, lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables and olive oil, has been proven to help stop the degenerative factors that lead to many lethal diseases including cancer.
There will be a live auction of three unique items – a designer signature black dress, a timeless piece of jewelry from Tiffany & Co. and an original piece of artwork by renowned artist John Broad.
Additionally Tiffany & Co. will be donating a portion of all proceeds from items sold in their Ritz-Carlton shop on that day to the Society.
Chris Sariego, Resort Manager of the Ritz-Carlton, said, ‘We firmly believe it is a social responsibility to assist in increasing local awareness among the people of the Cayman Islands of cancer as a major health condition. The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman is delighted to be involved in an event that provides an opportunity for members of the community to raise vital funds and at the same time creating a memorable experience for guests.’
