This will be a fun and tasty, family-friendly event that will showcase some of Cayman’s top chefs and finest restaurants. The event is unquestionably a win-win-win as restaurants can “strut their stuff”, attendees get to experience a culinary cornucopia and 100% of every ticket sold goes directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands. We encourage the public to attend as their support helps us to continue our mission to provide as many children as we can with mentors.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands’ mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of Cayman’s youth. Theorganisation hopes to assist them in achieving their highest potential, through a professionally-supported one-to-one (mentoring) relationship with a caring adult.
