The Water Authority Board has approved a Bronze Sponsorship donation of $1,500 to help the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
October marks the start of the annual international campaign to promote the importance of ‘early detection as the best protection’ in the fight against breast cancer. This is the 14th consecutive year the club has been actively promoting this campaign.
Water Authority-Cayman applauds the dedication of the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens, which helps in the education and development of breast cancer awareness and education throughout the Cayman Islands.
“The Water Authority staff and directors are very honoured to support the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens in their ongoing efforts in raising awareness of this terrible disease that affects so many people on the Islands,” said Pearlina McGaw-Lumsden, a board member of the Water Authority. “We wish them the very best and continued success with their endeavours.”
“The Lions Club of Tropical Gardens is extremely happy to have the Water Authority supporting the breast cancer awareness campaign again this year,” said Belinda Blessitt Vincent, president of the Lions Club of Tropical Gardens. “Through such partnership, more persons can benefit from our educational programs and we can provide more mammograms so that women in our community can pro-actively assess their breast health, and lives can be saved. Each company that supports this cause helps to create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays. Our club looks forward to working with the Water Authority again next year.”
The Water Authority is the statutory authority responsible for the management of water and wastewater in the Cayman Islands. The administrative headquarters are located at 13G Red Gate Road in George Town, Grand Cayman.
