Stingray swimmers fundraise through Spanish wine dinner

Stingray Swim Club will be staging a fundraising wine dinner at Grand Old House. 

Participants will enjoy a modern, European menu prepared by Grand Old House’s world-acclaimed chefs and paired with Spanish wines; with the Caribbean Sea as the backdrop on Nov. 22. The event will see all proceeds going to the club’s various programs. 

Stingray club president Amanda Roberts says it should be a great evening. 

“The Cayman Distributor Group of companies is partnering with Stingray to present this evening of great food and fine wines,” Roberts said. “We are looking forward to an evening of wonderful food and wine; and knowing that we are raising funds for Stingray’s swim programs will make the food and wine taste all the better.” 

This one-of-a-kind dinner starts with a reception at 7 p.m., and then features a three course dinner, paired with six different glasses of wine – selected to compliment the evening’s menu. The cost for the evening is $125 per person.  

Stingray swimmers, like Andrew Smilley, are coming off a strong performance at the Pirates Week Mike Lockwood Memorial Swim, which took place at the Lions Aquatic Centre. Stingray club placed first overall, ahead of the Camana Bay Aquatic Club, Team Treasure Island and Special Olympics of the Cayman Islands.
