Related Topics

100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) has announced that Big Brothers Big Sisters Cayman (BBBS) has been designated as its 2016 Cayman Beneficiary.

100WHF Cayman aligns its yearly objectives to a global theme that rotates on an annual basis to ensure the greatest impact on the local community; for 2016, the theme is Mentoring. BBBS is a local charity that promotes its mentoring objectives by pairing dedicated adult volunteers with those children in the community that could most benefit from an enriching one-to-one mentoring relationship. 
Commenting on the selection, Pilar Bush, Chair of BBBS, says: “Big Brothers Big Sisters Cayman is thrilled to have been selected by 100WHF Cayman as the 2016 Beneficiary of its Philanthropic efforts. As the leading mentoring organisation in the Cayman Islands, our vision is that all children achieve success in life. This partnership will allow us to significantly expand our school and community-based mentoring and raise local awareness for the measurable positive impact of mentoring.  We know the intelligent, passionate and committed women of 100WHF Cayman will help us transcend our 2016 goals and make a meaningful difference in the Cayman community.”
100WHF Cayman raised a total of USD56,425 in 2015 for LIFE (Literacy is for Everyone) with three successful events: the 2nd Annual Barefoot Beach Gala, Centered Leadership Workshop and Nicole Miller Fashion Show. 
Marilyn Conolly, Executive Director of LIFE, says: “LIFE is committed to improving literacy levels in the Cayman Islands and it is only possible to do this work with the partnership and commitment of organisations such as 100WHF Cayman. With the funds raised by this dedicated group of professional women, LIFE was able to reach children across all the public schools on Grand Cayman and take us one step closer to our goal of a literate community.  It is such a joy to see children develop a love of reading, master a word, or have their face light up when they see their reading partner. It is these moments and milestones that keep us dedicated to our mission and we are so thankful to have 100WHF share this journey.”
100WHF Cayman has a number of events planned for 2016 including the 3rd Annual Barefoot Beach Gala which will be held on Saturday, 16 April 2016 at Tiki Beach Grand Cayman.
