Kiwanis $6k for Special bus

The Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman organized a successful golf tournament at the North Sound Club two weeks ago.

Sixty-three players participated and lots of prizes were awarded for the top three teams, highest score, longest drive, closest to the pin, as well putting playoffs for a three-hour charter on the Allura Catamaran and many random prizes for the raffle drawing.

Thanks to all the players, sponsors and supporters over $6,000 was raised to donate to the Special Olympics Bus Fund. They need a new bus to transport the athletes from various districts to sports training, events and other related activities.

The Joe Patterson Trophy was presented by Kiwanis president Mario Barrett to the winning team; The Corner Spot; Lee Webb, Dave Harniman, Dave Haffy, and Mike Dill.

The runners up were BCQS; Tim Hepburn, Tom Gammage, Jeremy Superfine and Brett Hill. One stroke behind was the MmmmMoo team; Mark Williams, Mary McCallum, Robin Winters and Mathew Moore.

Other prizes were presented; men’s longest drive went to Stephen Duval and men’s closest to the pin went to Bob Slatter.

Women’s longest drive and closest to the pin went to Siobhan Ribbons. The Mansion won highest score, Matthew Moore won guess the number of golf tees in the jar and Shannon Emslie won the putting playoffs.

The hole in one on the 13th hole for $100,000 cash had some close shots but nobody went home with the huge sum.

The Kiwanis Club would thanked the main sponsor, Insurance Company of the West Indies, followed by First Caribbean Bank and Cayman National Bank, plus the executive hole sponsors; The Mansion, Butterfield Bank, and Creative Tech and Nautilus Cayman Ltd for the Allura Catamaran.

Hole sponsors were; GT Auto, Cayman Electric, Alba Elevator, Megasol Technologies, Cobalt Coast and Andro.

Those who donated prizes for this event were; Cracked Conch, Morgan’s Harbour, Seven at the Ritz, Funky Monkey, Cobalt Coast, Comfort Suites, Texaco, Edoardos, Grand Old House, The Wharf, Aqua Beach, Hard Rock CafĂ©, Casanovas, Cobalt Coast, Harvey’s Island Grill, Vampt Motors and ICWI as well as the North Sound Club.

Also thanks to all of those who donated their time, without everybody’s support and contributions, this event could not have taken place.

We thank all the players for coming out and participating and hope to see you in April for our next Golf Tournament.
