Image result for hurricane irma relief fundraiser

The 5 Rotary and Rotaract Clubs on Grand Cayman are holding an inter-Club Fundraiser this Saturday, September 16 starting at 7 pm at The Office Lounge.  There will be raffles, auctions, a Karaoke “pay to sing/not sing”, among other fundraising initiatives so please make an effort to attend and support the Clubs, tell your friends and co-workers as well.  If you are not able to make it but would still like to donate money to the relief Fund, please attend Thursday’s weekly meeting and give your donations to Treasurer Chris, Secretary Christian, or myself.  No gift is too small, and every penny collected will be forwarded to the relief fund.

There have been some requests and queries to also send items such as clothes and supplies to the islands.  While this is very thoughtful and a kind gesture, sending such supplies at this point would be more of a hindrance to the clean-up efforts that are currently underway.

Veteran marathon competitor Rotarian Derek Haines will be running three races and climbing two volcanoes this year to benefit the Central Caribbean Marine Institute.The 68-year-old has the backing of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman in his efforts to raise $50,000 for the marine institute. Money will go toward a CCMI pilot project, Reefs Go Live, which provides real-time footage of coral reef activity to teach children about the ocean. The CCMI virtual classroom uses high-tech face masks and streaming equipment to broadcast live lessons from locations in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. Mr. Haines’ first marathon will be April 30 at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, considered one of the most challenging marathons in the world. In June, he will travel south of Antigua, Guatemala, to climb the volcanoes Agua, reaching 12,336 feet, and Acatenango, reaching 13,044 feet. He will then run marathons in San Francisco on July 23 and in Cayman on Dec. 3.

This club is geared to youth age 14 to 18 who wants to make a positive contribution in their community, develop leadership skills, make new friends and have fun with a club they run themselves. The club is mentored by Rotarians and Rotaractors and club members meet twice per month for meetings and have one social event per month.
