Governor named patron

Governor
Duncan Taylor is the new patron of the Cayman Heart Fund.

Governor
Taylor said he was delighted to accept the role of patron and was impressed by
the turn out at the Cayman Heart Fund’s annual Red
Dress Valentine’s gala.

“When one
has done something useful such as to support the Cayman Heart Fund in this way
it leaves one with something of a glow. There is real satisfaction in putting
something back into society,” he said.

Ms Suzy
Soto, chairman of the Cayman Heart Fund said the support from the public for
the gala was incredible.

“We
managed to raise approximately CI$20,000, which is a tremendous sum that will
be put towards excellent use by the Cayman Heart Fund, raising awareness and
trying to prevent heart disease within Cayman’s society.”

Mrs. Soto
was especially grateful to the artists who donated their unique paintings and
sculptures to the silent and live auctions.

 “In particular we were all very impressed by
John Broad’s wonderful painting that he created during the event. The lively
painting depicted the talented Vivendi artistes who performed live as well as
lots of vignettes from the event. John Wood eventually made the highest bid for
the painting and then kindly donated it straight back to the Cayman Heart Fund!  In the end the painting was purchased by
David Phipps. Mr. Phipps took home a really special souvenir of the event,” she
said.
