FUSE supports teenager

The FUSE committee, FUSE cast, Cayman Water Craft Association and a host of volunteers, supporter, friends and family have raised some much needed funds for stricken teenager Demetire Connor. 

It was an evening of entertaining performances from a host of artists at the Harquail Theatre Sunday night for those who turned out to lend support to the young man. 

Demitrie Connor, a 15-year-old Caymanian, who was perfectly healthy until he was suddenly struck down by a stroke is the recipient of their coming together to assist. 

He was air-lifted to Miami Children’s Hospital and a brain tumour was found. He has made small improvements since but it may be months before he is well enough to return home. In the meantime medical bills are piling up and the group decided to do their bit to help Demitrie’s family. 

The FUSE show took place at the Harquail Theatre on 5 August. 

Blends of talent and fashion were showcased in honour of Dimitrie, who is in a coma.  

Race Director of the Cayman Islands Watercraft Association, Mike Young, kept the crowd going introducing performance teams such as Xtreme Racing, Tony’s Toys Watercraft Racing, Action Racing, HPR and Tryin-A-Ting showcasing beachwear for a top prize of $500. Toys Watercraft Racing was the winner.  

Clothes modelled were courtesy of Captain Marvin’s Watersports, One 345, Red Sail Sports and Kirk Marine. Accessories were provided by FAB Essentials. 

The dancers also shared the spotlight with wonderful performances from Peponi choreographed by the show’s producer Monyque Brooks, Mirror in Me by Melisha Mcfield, Let Go and Lenjen and Kou Kou choreographed by Nicole Sterling, Silent Night choreographed by Anya Belefonte, I Love You sung by Zosia McGreggor and choreographed by Ica Eden. 

The ladies cheered loudly in the dance Short n’ Sweet by Elbert, Marlon and Patrick. Yung Fusion impressed the audience with his rapping skills and Zahria Anglin wowed the crowd with her beautiful voice.
