Breast Cancer Foundation - Cayman Islands wins $5,000

100+ Women Who Care held their second event of the year at Guy Harvey’s Boathouse Grill. The ‘Girl’s night out with a difference - summer edition’ aimed at achieving more together within the Cayman community. Breast Cancer Foundation - Cayman Islands won the main pot of $5,000 donated by the members. Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Plastic Free Cayman both left with $1,250 thanks to platinum sponsor Health City Cayman Islands and a generous donation of emcee Vicky Wheaton. In total, the event raised $7,500. Her Excellency, Governor Jane Owens rewarded the winning charity with their cheque.

At the start of the evening at 6pm, after donating $100 CI, all women were welcomed with a raffle ticket, a voting card, a goodie bag, an experience lounge of local businesses, and a complimentary drink provided by drink sponsor Bombay Bramble. Vicky Wheaton, our emcee for the evening, started off the 5-minute charity presentations. Ari Underwood and Cheyenna Caldron presented for Breast Cancer Foundation - Cayman Islands, Mariesha Spencer for Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, and Bella Rooney for Plastic Free Cayman. After their time was up, all members voted for their favorite to win, and the volunteers counted the cash and votes behind the scenes whilst so many raffle prizes were awarded. We topped up our refreshments at the bar while catching up with friends and making new acquaintances. Special thanks to our venue sponsor Market Street Group for hosting this event at the wonderful Guy Harvey’s Boathouse Grill.
