Young performers from St. Ignatius will take the stage at Loyola Hall for the school’s main annual fundraiser on Dec. 14.
The St. Ignatius Christmas concert starts at 7 p.m. and will feature the school bands and choirs performing Christmas songs and carols, a press release states.
Tickets also include raffle entry, and the program will conclude with the grand prize drawing of $25,000, second prize of $2,500, and third prize of US$2,500. The next five prizes are Cayman Airways US$300 travel vouchers, which can be used toward any Cayman Airways destination. Additional prizes include gift certificates from Luca and Ragazzi restaurants, as well as gas vouchers from Walkers Road Rubis. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win; all winners will be notified by phone on Dec. 14 and 15.
Net proceeds from the event will benefit both the church and the school. According to the press release, the church will invest money in facilities improvements in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. Some of the proceeds will also support local charity work by the church.
The school will use the proceeds toward the new facilities development fund. A portion of the proceeds will go to the scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance for families who are unable to afford full school fees.
Tickets are $25 and are available at the school or church offices and from a number of parents, students, teachers and church members. Tickets are also on sale at Island Cleaners, Treats Restaurant in the Marquee Plaza, Sameena’s Beauty Centre, and Walkers Road Rubis. Tickets will also be on sale outside several supermarkets during the first half of December, and at A. L. Thompson’s in George Town on Dec. 12.
