Perhaps you want to do more this year to help mankind. Maybe giving back is a favorite pastime and one you don’t want to skimp on simply because you’re on vacation. If you’re planning a visit to Grand Cayman this March, the island paradise has two charity events scheduled that are as fun for the whole family as they are important to those they benefit. Take a moment to learn about these events before planning your itinerary. Depending on how long your visit to Grand Cayman will be, you may be able to attend both.
A Walk In Her Shoes
Support the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre that provides women, children, and men in abusive relationships with a safe haven. The crisis centre notes there is “no excuse for domestic abuse” on their website and sponsors several events throughout the year, including A Walk In Her Shoes on Thursday, March 5th. Men are encouraged to wear blinged-out heels as they strut their stuff down the designated area of Camana Bay in Grand Cayman. Painting toenails and wearing dresses and wigs are suggested as well to add to the fun.
Participants can register individually or as part of a group, with the entrance fee of $30 KYD. Every participant must walk a minimum of five laps in their fancy footwear. For every $150 raised, a lap gets removed. The centre hopes to reach its goal of $50,000 KYD this year; the event starts at 5:00 pm and ends at 7:00 pm.
Light Up The Night Breast Cancer Beach Walk
Enjoy participating in the 9th Annual Light Up The Night Breast Cancer Beach Walk on Saturday, March 7th. You’ll raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation as you walk from the Royal Palms Beach Club to the Ritz-Carlton and back. Make a $25 KYD donation when you register and receive one raffle ticket entry; each additional ticket is $5 KYD.
Walk by the light of the (nearly) full moon before enjoying cocktail specials at the Royal Palms, as well as 10% off food. Who knows, maybe you will win one of the fantastic raffle prizes. The event goes from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
Since these events are so close together, it’s entirely possible to participate in both if you visit Grand Cayman for five to seven days. Don’t wait to book accommodations for your island adventure–visit South Bay Beach Club today.
