Music, dance, drama and fashion are the order of the day as the Lions Club of Cayman Brac presents its annual Christmas Variety Show.
The Aston Rutty Centre-based shindig starts at 7pm on Saturday, 1 December, and features a host of local artists.
The dynamic and fun emcee is Cheryl Thompson of Radio Cayman as she presides over a night of family-friendly fun and entertainment.
The fashion segments include casual, formal and one with the theme of embracing cultural diversity. The international segment will feature fashion from a variety of nationalities represented in Cayman Brac.
Entertainment also includes the popular “Old Joe” drama series by Dave Tatum & Company – a belly full of laughter is promised.
Lots of local entertainment will light up the venue as will fast-rising Caymanian Wayneroy, the R&B vocalist now making real inroads into the Florida music scene.
Admission is $5 and free for children under 4. There’s a chance to win a gate prize, too. A raffle proper could win you an iPhone – tickets for that are $10 apiece or $25 for three. It could be a happy Christmas for someone! Tickets can be purchased at L&M’s Super Store, Billy’s Supermarket or from any member of the Lions Club of Cayman Brac. The drawing of the raffle will take place at the end of the show.
Get ready to eat
Real island food (as opposed to “pretend food”, which we assume is plastic or something) will be on offer as will plenty of other refreshments, so come hungry.
Proceeds from the variety show will go to the annual Christmas gift project for children and the elderly, explain the Lions.
“Every year the club provides gift bags with food and clothing items to the elderly in the community. We also provide Christmas gifts to all the children on the Brac. Our aim is to help to bring Christmas cheer to our elderly and children. The variety show is one way in which we raise funds to support this project.
“We welcome any further donations from any member of the public who wishes to support the project or our projects in general. One of the missions of Lions International is to foster a spirit of community togetherness. The organisation’s motto is ‘We Serve’ and we are always eager and willing to serve the needs of our community,” we’re told, and golly gosh gumdrops, we reckon they’re spot on, too.
