The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC), which provides safe shelter and support for a victims of domestic violence and their children, announces its collaboration with Mothers’ Union to host the fundraising event, Raise your Teacup.

This event is an annual calendar fixture for Mothers’ Union of St. George’s Anglican Church, a non-profit ministry whose objective is to advance the Christian faith and Christian Family Life, within the Cayman community.  This year, the Tea Party, usually held at the church, will be expanded in partnership with the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, in an effort by the Mothers’ Union to support the CICC fundraising initiatives.

All proceeds from this event will be used to fund the Crisis Centre’s Raise the Roof project of building a new shelter for the victims of domestic violence.

“The Mothers’ Union 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,” said Karen Williams, Mothers’ Union Enrolling Member.

The event, which will be held on Saturday May 11th between 3-6pm at The Westin hotel, will include an afternoon of high tea, fashion show and live and silent auctions. The Governor’s wife, Mrs Elizabeth Roper, will also be in attendance as a special guest.

“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’. The ‘Raise Your Teacup’ event 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,” said Michelle Lockwood, CICC Board Member and Chair of Fundraising Committee.
