In an effort to bring Christmas joy to the Sister islands, an all island party is being planned for Cayman Brac on 18 December.
Organised by the Agape Family Worship Centre and the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce, the party will run from 4pm to 10pm and will include activities for the whole family.
‘Recalling the after effects of Hurricane Ivan, still fresh in many of our minds, including the stress, pressures and hardships faced as we all struggled to recover, the ‘Christmas Joy’ concert is intended to bring an evening of reprieve, celebration and joy and to demonstrate continued solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Sister Islands who are much less fortunate than us this Christmas Season,’ said Agape Pastor Al Ebanks.
Organisers hope to raise $150,000 for the event and will use some of that money to provide a gift for every household in the Sister Islands in order to assist in making this Christmas as joyful and special as possible in spite of the hardships experienced by the residents.
‘If just 5 per cent of Cayman’s population responded with $100 each this becomes easily achievable,’ Mr. Ebanks said of the $150,000 target.
He said plans for the concert are progressing well and organisers are confident that the community in Grand Cayman will respond generously and make this event a great success and an unforgettable evening for the Sister Islands residents.
Donations can be made to either the Agape Family Worship Centre at 50 Fairbanks Road in George Town, or the Chamber of Commerce Office.
