Rolling for Olympians

The great work the Cayman Islands
Olympics Fundraising Committee does continues Friday with another spectacular
theme night.

This one is Rolling the Dice at
Caesar’s at The Ritz-Carlton, from 7pm-12.30pm and will be a lot of fun.

The Ancient Roman Empire theme
blends perfectly with A Night in Las Vegas. So centurion guards will be playing
the black jack tables. Naturally!

 Local members of the community will add to the
fun by reinventing themselves as celebrities.

Truman Bodden, tired of being
Cayman’s heavyweight champion has hung his boxing gloves up and will no doubt
be a babe magnet as Hugh Hefner with the Girls Next Door.

Then there will be Ray Charles and
Willy Nelson (Larry Cayasso and Papi Connolly) the Gold Stilettos (a group of
well known dancers, including Mike Brown, Andi of LUCA and Ian Dawson-James).

Centurion guards will be Kim Lund
and James Bovell who have promised to put on a great show and fight to the
death with any willing challengers.  

In the Shadow Bar the Silhouette
Dancers will entertain and guests can dine at Spagos or Nobu, or the Casino,
and enjoy a few games of black jack or poker.

Both casinos could reap grand
winnings like a weekend for two at The Trump International Resort in Florida, a
weekend for two at the NY Palace Hotel’s deluxe executive room, a weekend at
Bal Harbour in Miami, or a weekend for two at Cayman’s Ritz-Carlton. There is
also the High Rollers Poker Run where a 10 ounce gold bar awaits.

All funds raised will go to benefit
Cayman’s Olympic hopefuls for the 2012 London Games and the development of
future competitors.

Skier Dow Travers was the latest
Caymanian to represent the Islands at the Olympics when he became the country’s
first Winter Olympian at the recent Vancouver Games.

Headed by chief organiser Betty
Baraud, the CIO Fundraising team is committed to raising funds to help the CIOC
push ahead. Baraud was inspired to get involved after her son Stefan competed
in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics.

Dress code for the evening is Roman
attire or a Night in Vegas.

Tickets are $250 and available at
Baraud International in Cricket Square, the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee
office in Windward Centre, Smith Road or any committee member.

Baraud said: “I would like very
much for the entire community to support our event. We’ve got the most
fantastic impersonators going on stage to entertain everyone.

“We’ve also got fabulous prizes and
great sponsors. So I hope everyone will buy a ticket. We hope that everyone
adheres to the dress theme of Roman attire or a night in Las Vegas and come and
have fun.”
