(CNS Local Life): The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC), which provides safe shelter and support for victims of domestic violence and their children, is collaborating with Mothers’ Union to host a fundraising tea party, an annual fixture for the non-profit ministry of St George’s Anglican Church.

Usually held at the church, this year’s tea party, “Raise Your Teacup”, will be expanded to support CICC, with all proceeds used to fund the Crisis Centre’s “Raise the Roof” project to build a new shelter for victims of domestic violence, stated a press release.

The event, which will be held on Saturday, 11 May, from 3pm-6pm at the Westin Grand Cayman, will include high tea, a fashion show, and live and silent auctions. The governor’s wife, Elisabeth Roper, will be a special guest.

Michelle Lockwood, CICC board member and chair of the fundraising committee, said of the event, “We are extremely grateful for this generous opportunity to co-host the Mothers’ Union annual tea party event for the benefit of our important fundraising project, ‘Raise the Roof’, adding it “will significantly help us reach our goal to build a new shelter for the number of domestic violence victims that rely on us for care and support.”

Karen Williams of Mothers’ Union said the “ministry fully supports the incredible work that the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre does, which is very much aligned with our own objectives to support and nurture the community. We felt strongly that our annual tea party event was a great way to partner with CICC and help raise more money for their ‘Raise the Roof’ initiative. We hope to partner on more initiatives in the future for the benefit of Cayman.”

Tickets, which cost $50 each or $500 for a table of 10, can be purchased online at the CICC website or through EventPro.
