Kelsey Grammer to speak at Cayman charity event

Golden Globe and Emmy award winning actor and producer Kelsey Grammer is set to speak at the 2018 Flowers Sea Swim’s annual charity dinner on June 14.

The 2018 Flowers Sea Swim’s annual charity dinner will be hosted this year by the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre at the Grand Cayman Marriott Resort on Thursday June 14th.

“We are excited to officially announce Kelsey Grammer as our celebrity speaker at this year’s gala,” said Ania Milanowska, Executive Director of the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre.

“Mr Grammer is an advocate against domestic violence and we’re honoured to have him speak at this event in support of our organization” she added.

A live and silent auction will also take place at the event with all proceeds going to the Crisis Centre.

The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is raising funds at the gala for their ‘Raise the Roof’ campaign to construct a new purpose built shelter for women, men and children that are victims of domestic abuse.

Dara Flowers Burke, Director of the Flowers Group, said she is again looking forward to the gala as part of the Flowers Sea Swim weekend of events.

“Each year we hold this gala to feature the visiting Olympians and to use as a fundraising platform for a local charity,” Flowers Burke said.

“The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is the beneficiary for the Flowers Sea Swim, Walk & Watch and this gala. This charity contributes so much to the local community and we are happy the funds raised from these events will help the Crisis Centre reach their goal to build a new shelter.”

This annual gala also invites 19 international swimmers, including 11 Olympians, 7 of which are gold medalists.

Tickets are now on sale for CI $150 per person or a table for CI $1,500.
