(CNS Local Life): Meals on Wheels is hosting its sixth annual ‘Orange You Glad’ gala and auction on Saturday, 25 May, with the goal to exceed the amount raised last year which covered more than 16,000 of the 48,000 meals the non-profit served in Grand Cayman in 2018.

Meals on Wheels was established in 1997 to provide “free, hot, nutritious meals to seniors, the homebound and the disabled throughout the Cayman Islands”, the organisation says on its website

Through the support of the community by ticket sales, donating auction items, restaurant ‘dine & dash’ and individual pledges for the gala, the organisation “will raise enough money to sustain meal delivery service to all 230 clients for over three months”, Meals on Wheels said in a press release. This year’s gala is being held at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, with cocktails at 6pm and dinner at 7pm.

To donate a live or silent auction item, purchase a ticket or a table, become a sponsor of Meals On Wheels, or for more information call 769-1974 or email info@mealsonwheels.ky
