St. Ignatius presents annual musical event
The annual St. Ignatius Band Concert and Christmas Fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. in Loyola Hall on Walkers Road. The event will feature all of the school bands and choirs, performing a variety of Christmas music for attendees to enjoy.
As if that wasn’t enough to get people in the festive spirit, the program will conclude with the gate first prize drawing for CI$25,000; second prize of CI$2500, and third prize of US$2500. There are more than 20 additional prizes, including five Cayman Airways USD$300 travel vouchers, which can be used towards a ticket to any Cayman Airways destination.
This is the main annual fundraiser for St. Ignatius, with net proceeds to benefit both the church and the school. The church will invest funds towards facilities improvements in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
The school will use the proceeds towards the facilities development fund. A portion of the proceeds will go to the scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance for those families who are unable to afford full school fees. A donation will also be made to a local charity.
Tickets cost $25, and are available at the school or church offices and from a number of parents, students, and church members.
Tickets are also on sale at several businesses (just look for the bright green posters) and outside most major supermarkets from Dec. 1 to 16.
Ticket holders do not need to be present to win and all winners will be notified by phone on Dec. 16 and 17. The prize drawing is always fully audited by KPMG and full results will be posted on the school website st-ignatius.com and the church website ignatius.ky.
Five years ago, one of the ticket purchasers summed it all up by saying, “Everyone who buys a ticket is a winner, because we are supporting our young people and the future of Cayman.”
St. Ignatius is most grateful for the community’s support over the years and they are looking forward to another successful event this year.
