Many gather at event to raise awareness of domestic violence

Around 200 guests enjoyed an evening of food, wine and musical entertainment at “A Night Under the Stars”, an event hosted by the Estella Scott Roberts Foundation, on Saturday, 13 October.  

The objective of the evening was to celebrate the life of the late Estella Scott Roberts, and to raise awareness of the work the foundation has been doing since it was formed four years ago.  

Guests were greeted with cocktails and canapes, accompanied by live music from Bona Fide. This was followed by a cash bar, with wine tasting provided by Premier Wines, food from Mise en Place and music by DJ Odalis.  

During the course of the event, held at Sunset Bay, attendees were able to bid on a number of items ranging from decorative items to Cayman Airways flights, in a silent auction and ticket holders were also entered in a raffle to win an iPhone. Artist John Broad was present, creating one of his ‘speed paintings’ which was also auctioned at the end of the evening.  

The Estella Scott Roberts Foundation continues to address the issues that Ms Scott-Roberts supported during her lifetime, and works towards a vision of “Gender Equality and a life free of violence for all.”  

Some of the achievements of the foundation during the past four years include the three public education campaigns (Be the Change; Silence Hurts; If You See Something, Say Something; and Sexual Harassment: I am not the one who should be ashamed), the launching of the first Steps to End Silence Walk and observance of the Sexual Assault Awareness Month, held in April this year. 

Additional information was available at the venue and a slideshow highlighted some of the work the foundation has done.  

The evening ended with the release of a number of remembrance lanterns, which attendees could purchase for a donation.
