Meals on Wheels is inviting volunteers and other members of the public to its upcoming annual Orange You Glad (OYG) Sunset Gala, to be held on May 22 at the historic Grand Old House on South Church Street.

The OYG Gala has become a much-anticipated event on Cayman’s social calendar and is the largest annual Meals on Wheels fundraiser.

As is customary, the night will offer a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues, family and friends while enjoying a gourmet dinner, live entertainment, dancing, door prizes and spectacular auction prizes.

Attendees will also have a chance to enjoy cocktails at 6pm, prior to the dinner at 7pm.

Regarding the dress code, this is usually smart casual and attendees are encouraged to wear orange, which is the popular Meals on Wheels colour.

The OYG Gala provides an opportunity for Meals on Wheels to highlight the incredible work that is done through their non-profit organisation, which delivers thousands of meals each month to seniors, homebound, infirm, and disabled individuals throughout our community. Meals are delivered by a dedicated group of over 100 volunteers, who deliver a daily hot meal, hearty soup and a warm smile. This nutrition and visit inspire and encourages wellbeing and prevents isolation, which can lead to depression among other illnesses.

MOW provides daily, hot, nutritious meals and hearty soups to seniors, homebound and disabled persons throughout Grand Cayman. Meals are provided free of cost to the clients and delivered to their homes, 52 weeks per year. Meals are prepared in four community kitchens and delivered to over 300 persons each weekday in all five districts — referrals continue to be made daily for more seniors in need.

Tickets are $200 per person and tables for any size group can be reserved. Book your tables today by emailing [email protected], call 769-1974 or tickets may be purchased from the Meals on Wheels office located at Trafalgar Place, 1428 West Bay Road.
