(CNS Local Life): A staff bake sale recently sweetened the coffers of local charity the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Association of the Cayman Islands (ADACI) by $2,000. Employees of the Maples Group have been holding bake sales since 2013, raising a total of more than $12,000 for various charities in Cayman.
“Our colleagues are always eager to show off their talents in the kitchen and consistently go above and beyond to prepare for our charity bake sale events,” said Allison Bodden, head of corporate services at Maples. “This year, in addition to raising $2,000 for this important charity in our community, we were delighted to share some of the baked goods with the residents of The Pines Retirement Home.”
Over the last six years, these bake sales have benefited Feed our Future Cayman, Cayman’s ARK, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and Meals on Wheels.
The non-profit ADACI aims to raise public awareness about the various dementias with a focus on Alzheimer’s. The ADACI also provides support for people with dementia and their carers. Run by volunteers, including a medical advisory committee, the ADACI is funded through donations and fundraising activities.
