The Tropical Garden Omega Leos at the University College of the Cayman Islands raised $150 on behalf of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre.
Fundraising efforts began on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, where Leos handed out orange ribbons in exchange for donations. Money raised from this event were combined with the proceeds from the Valentine’s Spring Affair in February.
“We made the donation to the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre to show our appreciation for the work it has been doing and to give our support so the Centre may continue to make a difference in the lives of women and children who go there for shelter,” said Leo Schizandra Porter, president of the Omega Leo Club.
Ania Milanowska, executive director of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, said, “It is wonderful to see our youth taking an active role in helping the survivors of domestic violence.”
