(CNS): Rotaract Blue Cayman Islands will host its 4th Annual Open Arms Awards Ceremony on Saturday, 2 July, at Ristorante Pappagallo at 7:00pm. The ceremony will be a heartwarming event which will honour caretakers, teachers and others throughout the Cayman Islands who have assisted individuals with special needs. The event will also recognize persons who have excelled in their lives despite their disability. The Open Arms Program has been created to build awareness and education about various forms of disabilities while helping to integrate those who are differently able into the community.

The Rotaract Blue Open Arms Program is founded on the belief that people who are differently able deserve equal opportunities to learn, grow and be respected within our society.

Members of the public who know someone who has gone above and beyond with assisting disabled persons in our community and should be recognised for their hard work and dedication, can complete the nomination form and submit to rotaractblue@gmail.com. Nomination forms are now available on www.rotaractblue.org. The deadline for submission is 17 June.

Tickets for the award ceremony cost $50 and includes a 3-course dinner, entry for the drawing for fantastic raffle prizes. Proceeds will benefit organisations such as Lighthouse School, Sunrise Adult Training Center, Maple House, Special Olympics and other Rotaract Blue Open Arms initiatives.

“The Open Arms Program is a unique program in the Cayman Islands. Rotaract Blue is passionate about highlighting the needs and celebrating the success of persons in our community living with disabilities as well as those who make a difference in their lives on a daily basis.” says Director of Community Service Marzeta Bodden. She continued, “I hope that the Cayman Islands community will embrace the cause of this program and support Rotaract Blue by attending the Open Arms Ceremony.”
