Ocean-themed fundraiser for CCMI next month

The annual Festival of the Seas fundraiser for the Central Caribbean Marine Institute will take place Oct. 18 at the Arts and Recreation Centre at Camana Bay.

The ocean-themed event will feature a gala dinner with cuisine from Camana Bay restaurants. “This year’s blue theme celebrates the natural beauty of the ocean,” said event organizer Jade Arch.

“Our goal is to honor everything the ocean provides us each day living here in the Cayman Islands, as well as educating our guests about what must be done to ensure its health for future generations.

“Everything about the Blue Gala will bring the ocean to life – even the dance floor is inspired by the ocean’s bioluminescence.”

The event will feature a cocktail hour, auction, dinner and a raffle. Auction items include resort stays, original prints by artists and photographers, and prize packages.

Black-tie dress is required, though guests are encouraged to wear blue to celebrate their love of the ocean.

Proceeds go to CCMI research and education programs.

Tickets are $175 per person. For more information and for ticket sales, contact Jade Arch at [email protected]
