The St. Ignatius Christmas Concert and Fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, December 14th at 7:00 pm in Loyola Hall. This is the first time it is taking place since 2019, due to all the impacts from COVID-19 over the past two Decembers. The event will feature music ensembles and choirs, performing popular Christmas songs and carols for attendees to enjoy.
The evening will conclude with the grand prize drawing of CI$25,000, second prize of CI$2500, and third prize of US$2500. The next five prizes are Cayman Airways USD$300 travel vouchers, which can be used towards any Cayman Airways destination. Additional prizes include gift cards from several local restaurants and businesses.
This is a very important fundraiser for St. Ignatius, with net proceeds to benefit both the church and the school. The church will invest funds towards facilities improvements in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. Some of the proceeds will also support local charity work undertaken by the church. The school will use the proceeds towards the facilities development fund. A quarter of the proceeds will go to the scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance for those families who are unable to afford full school fees.
Tickets cost $25, and they 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 several businesses, including: Island Cleaners, Treats Restaurant, Sameena’s Beauty Centre, and Walkers Road RUBiS. Tickets will also be on sale outside several major supermarkets through December 14th, and at AL Thompson’s in George Town on December 12th-13th.
Ticket holders do not need to be present to win and all winners will be notified by phone on December 15th-16th. The prize drawing is always fully audited by KPMG and full results will be posted on the school website st-ignatius.com and the church website ignatius.ky.
Several years ago, one of the ticket purchasers summed it all up by saying, “Everyone who buys a ticket is a winner, because we are supporting our young people and the future of Cayman.”
St. Ignatius is most grateful for the community’s support of this event over the past 30 years and we are looking forward to another successful event this year. For more information, please contact the church office on 949-6797 or the school office on 949-9250.
