(CNS): In need of new computers and printers, the Truman Bodden Law School will be hosting a gala ball fundraiser later this month to help cover the cost of the much-needed equipment and a scholarship for a local student. The event will also provide an excellent opportunity for students to interact with the wider legal community and to gain exposure to professionals in their aspired careers.

Organisers said the Law School Annual Gala is an essential component in the ongoing success of the school.

“The money we raise from donations and support redefine the academic initiatives that help to enhance the law students’ experience on the island. Following on from the success of last year’s gala, the Student Society was able to purchase a new Smart Board in addition to upgrades to our computer lab. The raised funds from this year’s dinner will go towards a number of items, specifically new computers and printers,” a spokesperson said.

“We feel that this can generally help improve our facilities and aid our students in achieving greater success within their studies and research. The Student Society is also committed to engaging with the local community. This year we hope that the funds we raise from the gala will enable us to provide a means-tested grant for a local student.”

The grant will be organised by the Student Society with the support of the Law School and advice from the Ministry of Education.

Its 33rd Annual Gala, ‘A Night in Never Never Land’, is planned for 24 April at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort Ballroom. Guests will be “transported to a mystical recreation of the Island Never Never Land. Whimsical clouds will be floating throughout the ballroom, transforming it into an authentic recreation of the Hook and Peter Pan stories,” organisers said.

There will be a Lost Boys Candy Buffet, and a black-lit Mermaid Lagoon will feature sweet treats and nibbles before dinner, while the Big Ben Bar serves complimentary and cash bar cocktails. Guests will be served a four-course dinner, while enjoying musical entertainment and a live raffle and auction. Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, a former student of the school, will be the guest speaker at the event.

Tickets cost:

CI$150 Individual

CI$95 Student
