The annual Highwater Christmas party has for the past several years been a lucrative fundraiser for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre. This year was no exception.
Attracting guests from across the hedge fund service provider sector in Grand Cayman, the event raised US$10,000, as well as a car load of presents for the clients of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and their children.
Gary Linford, founding partner of Highwater, said, “I hope this donation will brighten the day for a few unfortunate families this Christmas. The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is such a worthy charity to support. I would also like to recognise the contributions made by all of our guests at Highwater’s Christmas fundraiser.”
Nicola Martyn, member of the Crisis Centre fundraising committee, received the gifts and said, “this is an extraordinary donation and we are delighted to receive such strong support from Highwater and their guests from the local hedge fund industry. These funds will make a positive impact on the Centre’s operational budget and will also serve to make Christmas at the Crisis Centre a whole lot brighter.”
The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is a locally-run charitable company established in 2003 with a primary mandate of providing a safe haven for abused women and their children.
