Crime Stoppers prepare for shootout

The
Cayman Crime Stoppers Cayman National Million Dollar Shootout golf tournament
will make its return on Friday 4 June. Now in its third year, the event will
take place at the North Sound Golf Club.

The
shootout will give golfers of all abilities a shot at the million dollar jackpot,
with the lucky finalists putting their golfing prowess to the test as they
drive for a hole in one which will earn the winner the seven figure prize.

Although
the prize has remained unclaimed in the previous two editions of the
competition, Eric Bush, Crime Stoppers chairman, believes this might be the
year.

“There’s
always a first time and this year could be it,” he said.

According
to Mr. Bush, the tournament plays a very important role in raising funds and
awareness for the programme.

“This
tournament is a great way of raising awareness about the Cayman Crime Stoppers
programme locally. It is always very well supported by corporate sponsorship
and we are truly grateful to all our sponsors for helping us to keep Cayman
safe. We are particularly grateful to our platinum sponsor and joint host,
Cayman National, who have been loyal supporters of the Cayman Crime Stoppers
programme for a number of years,” said Mr. Bush.

The
big shootout jackpot will not be the only prize on offer, with spectators and
players standing a chance of winning prizes and giveaways on the day, as well
as enjoying themed holes, awards and an informal reception attended by key
figures in Cayman’s business community. The organisers also invite members of
the public to come out and help raise funds for the Crime Stoppers programme.

According
to Stuart Dack, president and CEO of event sponsor and joint host Cayman
National, the company is very happy with the growth of the event.

“Cayman
National is delighted to see the Million Dollar Shootout now establishing
itself as one of the major events in Cayman’s fundraising calendar,” he said.

“Cayman
National is committed to helping fight crime in the Cayman Islands. This is
more important now than ever before so we are proud to be on board with the
Cayman Crime Stoppers programme and their fight against crime,” he continued.

These
sentiments were echoed by Mr. Bush, who expressed his concern regarding crime
in Cayman.

 “We continue to experience an intolerable
amount of violent crime and it is vital that we raise awareness about the
Cayman Crime Stoppers programme as a means for the public to help combat crime
without fear of any personal reprisals. The Crime Stoppers tips line is completely
anonymous and callers can win a reward of up to $1,000 if their tips lead to
the successful resolution of a case,” he said.

The
Cayman Crime Stoppers tips line is 800 TIPS.
