Cayman Islands news, Grand Cayman local art news, Cayman Heart Fund(CNS): Set your calendars for Saturday 13 February for the Cayman Heart Fund’s annual Red Dress Valentine’s Gala, which will be held at the Westin Casuarina. As well as enjoying a glittering night of wonderful food and wine, music and camaraderie, with ladies dressed for the red dress theme, guests will for the first time this year get to own a piece of art created by one of Cayman’s talented local artists. Suzy Soto, Chairman of the Cayman Heart Fund says that the Cayman Heart Fund board is delighted that so many local artists have chosen to donate their work to an auction.

“We are extremely grateful to the wonderful artists who have graciously offered their incredibly creative work so that it can be auctioned for our vital charity. Our thanks go to Bendel Hydes, David Bridgeman, John Broad, John Doak, Chris Mann, CE Whitney, Charles Long, Chris Christian, Gordon Solomon, Maureen Lazarus, Nickola McCoy, Teresa Grimes, Avril Ward (pictured above), Guy Harvey and Al Ebanks,” Soto said.

As an exciting artistic enhancement to the proceedings, John Broad, well-known in the community for his ability to ‘speed paint’, will be painting live at the Gala and this painting will also be auctioned to the highest bidder.

Paintings will be on show just before the Gala dinner so everyone will have the chance to pick their favourite piece then as the dinner commences they will be brought into the Westin’s ballroom to provide a fantastic backdrop to the event.

The Westin’s Executive Chef Jason Koppinger has created a fabulous meal especially for the Valentine’s Day Gala, which includes a first course of Cayman field greens, cucumber papaya and crispy wontons with a oriental lime vinaigrette, followed by a main course sautéed grouper fillet, Jamaican peppered baby shrimps and Angus beef filet, served with lemon grass flavored jasmine rice and fresh vegetables and a dessert course consisting of a Pavlova filled with fabulous fresh fruit.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Chuck and Barrie Quappe’s Sea N B and Vivendi will make a special appearance to wow guests with their unique talents. It is anticipated that everyone will have a wonderful evening, all in aid of a very worthy cause.
