The Cayman Islands Red Cross is known for its fundraising events, as every year the audience is entertained by international tribute artists that get people on their feet to dance the night away, all in the name of a good cause.
This year is no exception. On Saturday, 9 June everyone will be gathered in the Westin Casuarina Governor’s Ballroom to witness the musical stylings of “Tom Jones,” “Ray Charles,” and “Frankie Valli” (minus his Four Seasons). It promises to be an evening of terrific performances with some exciting items on the auction block.
In the past artists have included tributes to Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra and Elton John. Donna Summer, Tina Turner and The Supremes took to the stage last year for the Red Cross anniversary extravaganza, and so therefore it was decided that this year an all-male lineup was appropriate. These performers have been booked all over the world and consistently astound audiences with their vocal and physical resemblances to the original artists. It is definitely an evening that no one should miss.
The Red Cross holds its annual dinner dance to raise awareness about the organisation, and how important it is to the local community. Whenever there is a disaster, it is one of the first to react and assist those in need. A number of residents were grateful for the shelter provided by the Red Cross when the island was flooded by recent storms, and they were able to remain until the waters receded.
Regular emergency exercises are held to ensure that all volunteers are trained and ready to leap into action when necessary.
With hurricane season now officially upon us, the Red Cross is prepared in advance with a stock of emergency supplies. These supplies cost money, and keeping the operation running day-to-day also requires funding. This is why the support of such fundraising events as the annual Dinner Dance is so vitally important to keeping the Red Cross open. All the profits go toward the management of the organisation’s programmes, which were created to assist the community.
A number of corporate sponsors have already purchased tables for the dinner and there are still some available, along with individual tickets for the general public. It is guaranteed to be a great night out and one that everyone can enjoy, knowing that they are contributing towards one of the most important charities in the Cayman Islands.
So why not call the Red Cross today and book your tickets for one of the best events on the social calendar? With great food and three legends on stage, you won’t find a better deal for your money.
