Rotaract Blue will host its annual Shades of Red cocktail party and wine tasting to benefit the Cayman AIDS Foundation next month.
The event aims to raise awareness about the spread of HIV/AIDS and promote healthy lifestyle choices.
At the 5 November cocktail party, guests will be invited to taste and compare wines from around the world, with each ticket holder being issued a Shades of Red passport, to reflect each wine destination “visited” on the evening.
Sommeliers Hailey Wagner of The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman’s 7 Prime Cuts and Sunsets and Sean Kerby of Michael’s Genuine handpicked the featured Cayman Distributors/Blackbeard’s wines this year and will be working with the team at the Brasserie, the venue for this year’s event.
There will also be a silent auction of local artwork, staycation packages, new tech gadgets and gift certificates for beauty treatments and nights out on the town.
Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited, Cayman National Bank, Cotton Tree, and Glidden Law have signed on as official supporters.
“We understand the urgent need to take the HIV/AIDS issue in hand and Rotaract Blue has worked alongside the Cayman AIDS Foundation to make a positive and effective impact on our community,” said Jacqueline Golding-McDonald, vice president of Rotaract Blue and event organiser. “We are pleased that Butterfield Bank, Cayman National Bank, Cotton Tree and Glidden Law have taken a stand to be part of the solution by pledging to assist our HIV/AIDS Awareness and Prevention campaign through sponsoring Shades of Red.
“Rotaract Blue is proud to continue our efforts here in the Cayman Islands and make a positive difference in our community,” she said.
Tickets for Shades of Red cost $75 per person and are available at the Brasserie and from Rotaract Blue members. Email [email protected] for more information.
