For those who live their lives up and down the Seven Mile strip, the Eastern Districts can sometimes be the furthest thing from their minds. Yet East End, Northside and Bodden Town are all just as much part of Grand Cayman as any of the other districts.
This is why in June 2010, Giuseppe Gatta, Susan Gatta, Alex Stewart and Marlaine Gagnon decided to set up PAWS, an organisation that would pay special attention to the needs of animals in the Eastern Districts. The organisation organises dog wash events as an opportunity to identify animals in need of care, and also as information sessions within the community. The organisation offers assistance where they find animals in need of assistance, whether it be food, veterinary attention or spay and neuter.
However, all of this requires funding, and therefore the organisation will be hosting a fundraising dinner on Saturday 10 March.
Under the name PAWSed in the sand at Rum Point, the event will take place at Rum Point Club Restaurant, with a cocktails being served from 7pm to 7.30pm and dinner starting at 8pm. Dinner will be a sit down affair, served on the beach, so diners will truly be in the sand as the name of the event implies. In addition to good company and good food, the evening will also feature a live auction as well as a silent auction to help raise money for the programmes run by PAWS.
Those attending the event can also catch the boat from Safehaven at 6pm in order to start the evening off on the right note and avoid the drive out to Rum Point.
Tickets for the event are $100 per person, with all profits from the event benefitting PAWSed and the animals of the Eastern Districts.
