Little Cayman resort sets out to help CCMI

| 14/01/2009

(CNS): The Southern Cross Club has pledged to donate 10 percent of accommodation charges from guests visiting from the Brac and Grand Cayman to the Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI). "Between hurricanes and the economy, it has been a tough year and we thought we’d offer a chance for locals to get away and enjoy the tranquility of Little Cayman and at the same time help CCMI recover from Gustav and Paloma," said Peter Hillenbrand, owner of the Southern Cross Club and Chairman of the Board for CCMI.

He said that each guest will also receive a gift bag with vouchers and merchandise, valued at $50.00, and a free upgrade to a deluxe unit, on an availability basis.  The Central Caribbean Marine Institute (CCMI) is guided by its mission to conduct and facilitate research, education, conservation and outreach that will sustain marine diversity for future generations. CCMI programmes provide a solid foundation for education and awareness for students and researchers both in the Caribbean and around the world.  Guests may arrange a tour of CCMI’s Little Cayman Research Centre during their stay.

Founded in 1958, Southern Cross has been a Cayman tradition for over 50 years and is an oceanfront 12 room boutique resort catering to divers, fisherman and anyone just wanting a little barefoot luxury.
