Health charity coffers boosted by golf tournament

| 26/03/2012

(CNS): The Caring for Life Foundation received over $25,000 last month from the Scotiabank Golf Tournament. The game netted CI$15,578 but the bank added $10,000 to the funds which will be used by the health charity to purchase hospital equipment and other resources to assistHSA and its patients. “We are delighted to say that this year’s event surpassed the objective we had hoped to reach,” sais Sharon Diaz, Chairperson of the Caring for Life Foundation and Senior Manager, Retail Banking at Scotiabank. “These funds will help to bring the Cayman Islands one step closer to achieving the Foundation’s goal of better healthcare right here at home.”

The winning team which finished with the best score was CUC’s Richard Hew; Andrew Small; Anthony Lawson; and Isabel Lawson.

Since it was first launched, the Caring for Life Foundation has supported a number of projects, including the purchase of equipment to test the hearing of all infants born at the Cayman Islands Hospital. Anyone wishing to make a donation is invited to call (345) 945-1722 or donate online at

The winning team was CUC’s, but the ultimate winners are the people of the Cayman Islands.
