Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, BWI- 15 November, 2007. Celebrations’ Enchanted Christmas Store at the Mirco Centre was once again filled with joy and camaraderie on Friday November 9th as Cancer survivor, Barbara Edwards, accepted a beautiful custom made wreath from Craig Arch of Arch Automotive. The joy on Ms. Edwards’ face spoke volumes as she accepted her generous gift. Also in attendance were Christine Sanders of the Cancer Society and Jo-Anne Brown of Celebrations.

“Celebrations is one of the Society's Partners in Prevention and we are grateful to them for making the Society one of the charities for whom they made and auctioned a wreath. It was generous and fitting that Arch Automotive, the winners of the wreath, decided to donate it to a breast cancer survivor, Barbara Edwards,” stated Ms. Sanders.

Arch Automotive was one of the bidders in the Celebrations Red Door Silent Auction held at Celebrations’ annual Holiday Open House on October 17th.

Celebrations Marketing Executive Denize Solomon hands Richard Goubault the custom-made wreath representing CI Crisis Centre.

The unique ‘Red Door Silent Auction’ was a huge fundraising effort benefiting several local non-profit organizations including the Cancer Society, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, The Humane Society, Crisis Center and Hospice Care. Attendees at the Holiday Open House placed bids on fabulous one-of-a-kind holiday wreaths, themed to match each organization’s brand. Wreaths were created by the amazingly talented Celebrations Design team.

“These local groups play an essential role in our local community. It is vital that we support them in anyway we can,” stated Celebrations Managing Director, Jo Anne Brown. “We at Celebrations are committed to working with the community. Given the success of the Red Door Silent Auction, we hope to make it annual event. I would like to thank all those who donated so generously as well as my wonderful design team here at Celebrations who donated their time and skills to create these wonderful wreaths.”

Celebrations will continue to partner with non-profit groups and the local community to help make a difference to the quality of life in the Cayman Islands.
