Red Dress Affair Cayman

Postby KarenS » Mon May 15, 2006 8:04 am

From Cayman Net News: "The Red Dress Affair has become the Cayman Islands Cancer Society’s (CICS) annual fundraiser and this year it is planned for 14 June at The Ritz- Carlton, Grand Cayman and is supported by Baptist Health, South Florida.

The Red Dress has become the international symbol of awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women. Many of the risk factors for heart disease are lifestyle related and are also risk factors for other chronic diseases such as cancer. The Cancer Society has therefore made it a point to host the Red Dress Affair to raise awareness of the role of lifestyle choices in the prevention of chronic disease.

Christine Sanders, Manager of the Cancer Society, said she was pleased to have The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman as a partner in the event.

Notable additions to this year’s Affair are a ladies luncheon and presentations at the evening Affair of interest to both men and women. Christine Sanders, Education Officer of the Society, says that acting on feedback from previous years the organization has decided to make the evening Affair more inclusive of men and this will be reflected in the exhibitors and presentations in the evening.

The traditional Red Dress Affair event is the evening of health, education, fashion and fun and this will begin at 5:30 pm with a cocktail reception.

During the cocktail reception there will be free health screenings as well as exhibitors promoting healthy lifestyles. Immediately following the reception there will be two presentations by guest speakers provided by Baptist Health South Florida.

The evening will conclude with a fashion show by Le Classique. Throughout the evening there will be a silent auction. As in previous years, there is no charge to attend the evening Affair but the Society is asking for donations with a recommended donation of $25.

The luncheon Affair begins at 11:00 am at The Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman. Remembering the traditional theme of Red Dress events around the world there will be a presentation on heart disease in women during lunch and the event will conclude with a mother-daughter fashion show. Tickets are $40 and go on sale on 15 May.

For more information on how you or your company can become involved with the Red Dress Affair event please contact Christine Sanders at 949-7618 or email"
