(CNS Local Life): Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actor and producer Kelsey Grammer will be the celebrity speaker at the 2018 Flowers Sea Swim’s annual charity dinner set for Thursday, 14 June and hosted by the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC). Funds raised at the gala will benefit the centre’s “Raise the Roof” campaign to construct a new purpose-built shelter for women, men and children who are victims of domestic abuse.

CICC executive director Ania Milanowska said she was “excited” to announce Grammer as the guest speaker. “Mr Grammer is an advocate against domestic violence and we’re honoured to have him speak at this event in support of our organisation,” she said in a CICC press release.

Dara Flowers Burke, director of the Flowers Group, said she is again looking forward to the gala as part of the Flowers Sea Swim weekend of events. “Each year we hold this gala to feature the visiting Olympians and to use as a fundraising platform for a local charity,” she said.

“The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is the beneficiary for the Flowers Sea Swim, Walk & Watch and this gala. This charity contributes so much to the local community and we are happy the funds raised from these events will help the Crisis Centre reach their goal to build a new shelter.”

Organisers of the annual gala, taking place at the Grand Cayman Marriott Resort, also invite international swimmers; of the 19 athletes invited, 11 are Olympians, including seven gold medallists.

The event will include a live and silent auction with all proceeds going to the Crisis Centre.

Tickets are on sale for $150 per person or $1,500 for a table.
