(Grand Cayman –9 February 2011) Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited recently signed on to be the 2011 platinum sponsor of the Cayman Heart Fund. This partnership aims to promote education, training and free medical screenings to help bring awareness to cardiovascular disease in the Cayman Islands.


“Butterfield understands the importance of health and wellness in the Cayman community, and are very excited to partner with the Cayman Heart Fund in their efforts to reduce the risk of heart disease,” said Butterfield’s assistant manager of Marketing & Communications Rhonda Serrano.
 

With the help of this partnership, the Cayman Heart fund is preparing to launch an array of programmes and events to encourage the community to become heart smart. Along with their upcoming annual fundraiser, the Red Dress Valentines Gala Dinner on Friday, 11 February, the Cayman Heart Fund also plans to host several events in March.
 

“The Cayman Heart Fund sincerely thanks Butterfield for their generous sponsorship to our non-profit organization,” said Cayman Heart Fund’s Chairman Suzy Soto. “We truly appreciate it, as every dollar helps us carry out our work of fighting Cayman’s #1 killer- heart disease.”


Heart Smart week begins in March 2011. One of the first programmes is the Heart Health Symposium. Set for Thursday, 3 March the symposium gives physicians, health professionals, and all other persons in the health care industry the opportunity to obtain their “Continuing Medical Education” (CME) certificate free a charge. Other Heart Smart events include the Red Dress Luncheon on Friday, 4 March and the Heart Health Fair set for Saturday, 5 March at Camana Bay.
 
  
“Raising awareness for this wide-spread issue is truly a worthy endeavour as it effects so many. Butterfield’s partnership with Cayman Heart Fund will have a great impact on the local community as a whole,” commented Butterfield’s Rebecca Ebanks. “We aim to enrich the lives of our community and believe that this small step will have a lasting effort.”


In addition to its Heart Smart events, the Cayman Heart Fund will be holding district screenings in various communities, Ken Chand Walk/Run in May and will purchase AED machines for public use, just to name a few.
