Million dollar tournament supports Cayman Crime Stoppers

10 April 2009

Cayman National has joined forces with Cayman Crime Stoppers to host what promises to be one of the islands’ most sensational sporting fundraising events of the year. The ‘Cayman National Cayman Crime Stoppers Million Dollar Shootout’, as it has been dubbed, will give golfers of all abilities a chance to win a cool million in a golf tournament shootout this June. Fifteen (15) lucky finalists will battle it out in a nail-biting suddendeath shootout, in which the first hole-in-one will earn its owner the seven figure prizepot. The golf tournament is part of renewed efforts to raise awareness about the Cayman Crime Stoppers programme.

Cayman National is already supporting the tournament as platinum sponsor, becoming joint host with non-profit organization Cayman Crime Stoppers. Stuart Dack, President and CEO of Cayman National, said, “We believe that crime prevention is vital to building solid foundations for a successful society. Cayman National is proud to join forces with Cayman Crime Stoppers to ensure that Cayman remains a safe and secure place to live and do business.”

Chairman of the Cayman Crime Stoppers board of directors, Stuart Bostock, said, “The Million Dollar Shootout provides the perfect platform to get the Crime Stoppers message to the community and we are thrilled to partner with Cayman National to host it.” He added, “Cayman National’s commitment is indicative of the importance of the Crime Stoppers programme within the local community. The buzz already being generated by the million dollar prize will make this tournament one of the most talked about charity events of the year, and one which corporate sponsors will not want to miss out on.”

The golf tournament will take place on 6th June at the North Sound Golf Club. As well as the million dollar shootout itself, players and spectators will enjoy an array of treats on the day, which includes a whole host of prizes and giveaways (including a seven (7) night trip to Hawaii), themed holes, awards and an informal reception which is expected to be well-attended by key figures in Cayman’s business community. Mr. Bostock said, “The day promises to be a lot of fun and the tournament is open to anybody of any skill level. Select corporate sponsorship packages offer automatic entry into the tournament, but spaces are limited so we are urging interested parties to contact us swiftly.” Mr. Bostock continued, “We are also gratefully receiving all corporate donations, which provide another opportunity for organizations to gain exposure at the event, whether they can attend or not.” Interested parties can contact Frank Brennan on 926 5506.

The tournament is part of efforts by Cayman Crime Stoppers to reestablish the programme as a major crime prevention force in Cayman. Whilst Cayman Crime Stoppers has been around since 1993, the programme revitalised itself recently by appointing a new board of directors, developing a new visual identity, and putting together plans to raise awareness about the programme in Cayman.
