Highwater raises US$18,000 to support victims of domestic violence

Highwater donationHighWater, a hedge fund operating in the alternative investment funds industry, hosted its annual champagne brunch to raise money for the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre (CICC). CICC, the shelter for female victims of domestic violence on the Cayman Islands, was given a remarkable USD$18,000 to finance its ongoing work to protect victims of domestic violence.

The large sum was made possible through the incredibly generous donations of attendees to the annual event, hosted at Abacus on Saturday 8th December. The attendees enjoyed a lush champagne brunch while the children got into the festive spirit by watching The Grinch together at the movies. The large sum that was raised will help to support the important work that the CICC conducts over the course of the year. Last year the same event hosted by HighWater raised USD$12,000, meaning there has been a large year-on-year increase.

Gary Linford is the Managing Director of HighWater and shared his opinion on the event: “We are truly proud to contribute to such a special cause. Our team works hard throughout the year and we relish the opportunity to support our local community in rallying together for an important cause.”

Ania Milanowska is the Executive Director of the CICC and expressed her gratitude: “We are incredibly thankful for HighWater’s assistance in tackling an issue that still, sadly, affects far too many lives. The amount of money raised goes directly to the Crisis Centre, and the positivity sends out a message that can help women to feel empowered and aware of the support network they have around them. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to every person who made this such a special day. The impact of your kind actions will be felt throughout 2019 and beyond.”
