Putting the ‘fun’ in fundraising

A fundraising dinner with a difference will take place on Saturday, 5 March.

The Carnival-themed event will aid the charity Missionaries of the Poor.

This will be the second dinner in Cayman for the charity, which cares for the poorest of the poor, and about 200 people are expected to attend. It will be set in the cloistered courtyard of St Ignatius School, with a silent auction in Loyola Hall.

Although there are several fundraising dinners in Cayman for many good causes, this one stands out from other charity fundraisers in its aim to relieve the severest poverty, while having unabashed fun.

It is also unique in that there will be a performance of a show written especially for the dinner, which includes a performance by members of Vivendi. This is in keeping with the spirit of Missionaries of the Poor, which has a very strong tradition of music and performance.

The founder of Missionaries of the Poor, Father Richard Ho Lung, has for many years entertained audiences all over the world with epic musical shows that teach Christian values in a dramatic and amusing way.

The organiser of the event, Fiona Pimentel said, “I am very excited about the dinner. It is particularly inspiring to see how generous people are with their time and donations.”

She added, “MOP do amazing work all year round, caring for the sick and destitute, so it is wonderful to be able to give them some help like this.”
