Kicking the Humane way

A lot of sports are happening this
weekend and in midst of them is a kickball tournament.

Tomorrow marks the return of the Humane
Society’s kickball fundraiser.

Under the backing of Maples law firm
the competition is slated to feature 24 teams competing for glory in one day at

Patrick Bourque states the goal is to raise even more money.

go a long way in achieving our goal of raising $15,000 for the Humane Society.”

There is ample corporate support
for tomorrow’s event with teams representing Cayman Free Press, The Doghouse,
Grant Thornton, Walkers, KPMG and many more.

The CFP team did well last year and
won a few games, nearly making the playoffs. The Doghouse Bulldogs are the
defending champion.
