As 128 competitors for the 22nd Annual Red Cross Golf Tournament gathered at the North Sound Golf Club on Friday, 6 September, Deputy Governor Franz Manderson thanked the Cayman Islands Red Cross for being there for the people of Cayman during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. He noted that the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Dorian on the Bahamas demonstrated how important it is to support international organisations like the Red Cross.

Vice Chair of the Board of the Cayman Islands Red Cross Doug Moffat said that while the afternoon was about fun and friendly competition, the tournament was the main fundraising event for the programmes and services Red Cross provides. 

Noting the sponsorship of CIBC FirstCaribbean, he said, “By sponsoring and playing this tournament, you enable us to continue to provide First Aid and CPR training, Disaster Management training, Child Protection and Sexual Abuse education, Volunteer Development and Thrift Shop services to support the people of the Cayman Islands,” Moffat said.

The bank’s Managing Director Mark McIntyre said, “Since 2002, CIBC FirstCaribbean has contributed to the various arms of the Red Cross organization including funding and organizing internal clothing drives for the Thrift Shop annually and becoming the first Humanitarian Partner in the Shelter for the Storm campaign. Both serving the most vulnerable populations in our community.”

The Cayman Islands Red Cross is accepting monetary contributions and volunteer assistance to support the people of the Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.
