$1 million shootout to fight local crime

| 30/09/2014

(CNS): Skilled golfers will have the chance to win $1million next month in the annual Cayman Crime Stoppers golf tournament. The NGO’s major fundraising initiative sees teams compete in a scramble format tournament with prizes for the top three teams while individuals players will vie for one of 15 spots to participate in the $1 million ‘shootout’ for the first person to get a hole in one. Cayman Crime Stoppers chairman, Malcolm Ellis, said that as is the case most years there has been lots of support from sponsors for the fundraisers which helps support the critical anonymous crime fighting hotline.

“This is always a great afternoon of golf, prizes and networking, but most importantly, it funds our efforts to reduce crime in Cayman for a whole year,” Ellis added.

Chris Duggan, from Dart one of the tournament’s sponsors said Cayman’s attraction to both visitors and residents is the safety of the community.  “Any increase in crime, however, would be cause for concern for us all and we must remain diligent to ensure that we are able to continue to enjoy a peaceful society.  The work of Cayman CrimeStoppers is a vital part of this process and we are very happy to support this initiative,” he added.

Cayman Crime Stoppers is a civilian, not-for-profit organization that provides a safe and secure means for people with information about a crime to give it freely whilst protecting their identity.  Crime Stoppers works closely with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), the community and the media and through its efforts hasbecome one of the most effective crime solving tools available to law enforcement agencies.

The tournament will take place Friday 10 October 2014 at the North Sound Golf Club.  To enter a team, to sponsor the event, or to donate a prize for a raffle, contact event organizer Denise Gower of Fountainhead at denise.gower@fountainhead.ky or by phone at 945 8188.  For more information on Cayman Crime Stoppers visit their website at www.caymancrimestoppers.ky.
