An icy fundraiser to benefit the Cayman Islands Cancer Society will be held May 29, when the Ice on Ice cocktail party takes place at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.
Anyone who raises $500 for the Cancer Society by May 29 will receive two complimentary tickets to the event, and the person or company that raises the most money will win one of a range of prizes, including a trip to Strawberry Hill in Jamaica, a Red Sail sunset cruise for 10, or a day of pampering at your office, courtesy of Posh Spa.
Featured at the cocktail party will be music from DJ Jonesian and signature “Iceberg” cocktails adorned with a cubic zirconia jewel, one of which will actually be a half-carat diamond from Kirk Freeport.
Jennifer Weber, operations manager at the Cancer Society, says the money raised in Cayman stays in Cayman, “so I hope corporations and groups of friends will take on the challenge and support Ice on Ice in some way.”
All proceeds will go toward the new chemotherapy unit at the Cayman Islands Hospital. Weber says, “In terms of square feet, it’s a small space, but it will make a huge difference to our community. Thanks to Cayman for making this dream a reality!”
This year’s event, organized by Z99, is sponsored by Butterfield, BritCay, Iceberg Vodka, Kirk Freeport, Holy Cross Hospital, The Security Centre, Personnel 2000 and Greenlight Re. The event runs from 6-9 p.m. and tickets, $39, are available at the National Gallery on the night, or in advance from the Cancer Society or online at http://www.active.com/donate/iceonicecayman.
