The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is joining forces with the Mothers’ Union to help raise funds for the centre’s domestic violence shelter.

The Mothers’ Union of St. George’s Anglican Church will partner with the Crisis Centre in a ‘Raise Your Cup’ tea party next month to support the shelter’s ‘Raise the Roof’ project. The project involves building a new shelter for victims of domestic violence.

“The Mothers’ Union ministry fully supports the incredible work that the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre does, which is very much aligned with our own objectives to support and nurture the community,” said Karen Williams of the Mothers’ Union.

The tea party on Saturday, May 11, at The Westin, will include an afternoon of high tea, fashion show and live and silent auctions. The governor’s wife, Elisabeth Roper, will attend as a special guest.

“The ‘Raise Your Teacup’ event will significantly help us reach our goal to build a new shelter for the number of domestic violence victims that rely on us for care and support,” said Michelle Lockwood, Crisis Centre board member.

Tickets for the event are $50 per person, or $500 for a table of 10, and can be purchased at cicc.ky/events and through eventpro.ky.
