A family with “Hatitude” at last year’s event

(CNS Local Life): The National Trust will host its sixth annual Hatitude brunch gala Sunday, 27 January in support of protecting and preserving Cayman’s wild environments and the flora and fauna that live within. Each year, the Trust themes its family-friendly brunch to bring awareness to Cayman’s unique and delicate natural environment; this year’s theme is “Birds of a Feather”.

“Hatitude is one of the Trust’s largest fundraising events, with proceeds directly supporting the Trust’s efforts to protect Cayman’s native plants and animals and the natural areas on which they depend,” said Nasaria Budal, Trust marketing manager, in a press release.

“These environmental sites include the Mastic Reserve, Central Mangrove Wetlands, the Salina Reserve, Colliers Wilderness Reserve, the Brac Parrot Reserve, the Governor Gore Bird Sanctuary, the Booby Pond in Little Cayman and our iconic blue iguana.”

Hatitude guests at the Grand Old House brunch are encouraged to be inspired by all wild birds – from the Cayman parrot to the great blue heron to the rooster – and to consider bird habitats and nests, incorporating creativity by using such items as twigs, leaves and cages. If using feathers, the National Trust has requested guests use only sustainably-sourced feathers or reuse feathers from old Carnival or Halloween costumes.

In addition to the brunch, a new feature will be a rum-tasting shack and cigar lounge, with a dedicated kids’ craft corner, face-painting for adults and children, and a photo booth. Local band Hi-Tide will provide the entertainment. There will also be a “Most Hatitude” competition for the best men’s, women’s and children’s hat; and a staycation package raffle.

Tickets for Hatitude are $135 for adults, $75 for teens (13 to 17 years old) and $45 for children (5 to 12 years old), and should be purchased by Thursday, 24 January, as there will be no ticket sales at the event.
