The Cayman Crime Stoppers Million Dollar Shootout Golf Tournament attracted eager golfers this month at the North Sound Golf Club.
The tournament is the organization’s major fundraising initiative for the year. A $1 million dollar prize was on offer for a hole-in-one, along with a trip to Hawaii and other prizes for the top three teams.
After 18 holes, the BCQS team of Neil Purton, Steve Lovell, Richelle Woodcock and Michael Baulk nabbed the first-place prize.
Just behind them by a mere shot was the RSM Cayman team and third place was OneTradex.
Fifteen golfers qualified for the $1 million shootout held on hole 18 on Oct. 10, but there was no winner this year. Three golfers made it within a few feet of the pin, which made the competition an exciting ending to the event.
Cayman Crime Stoppers Chairman Malcolm Ellis said, “Every year we have had an outpouring of support from corporate and other sponsors and this year was no different.
“This is always a great afternoon of golf, prizes and networking but, most importantly, it funds our efforts to reduce crime in Cayman for a whole year.
“We are also very thankful for the support of Dart Cayman as the platinum sponsor and The Security Centre as our silver sponsor. We could not have done it without them.”
The $14,000 that was raised will go towards the program’s initiatives for the coming year, including facilitating the 800-TIPS (8477) hotline which provides a safe and secure means of providing information about a crime, whilst protecting callers’ identities.
Callers also have the opportunity to receive a financial reward if their assistance leads to successfully solving a case.
The tournament organizers thanked the many sponsors for their participation and look forward to another successful event next year. Sponsors included Dart Cayman, The Security Centre, BCQS, Intertrust, Digicel and Jacques Scott.
