RE/MAX Cayman Islands and the Breast Cancer Foundation of Cayman are proud to announce that Shannen Doherty will be the guest speaker at this year’s Breast Cancer Foundation Gala, which will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. RE/MAX Cayman Islands will, once again, be the title sponsor for this year’s Gala. Shannen Doherty is an actress best known for her roles in a variety of popular television series, including Little House on the Prairie, Our House, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Charmed. She’s also been a favorite on the big screen with roles in films such as Heathers, Mall Rats and Christmas Caper.

In 2015, Shannen was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has been incredibly open throughout the process of her treatment, which has sparked a widespread conversation in the media that she hopes inspires others fighting cancer.

“At 46-year-old, Shannen Doherty will continue the Gala’s recent theme of having young women speakers,” added Kim Lund, Co-founder and Board Member of the Breast Cancer Foundation of Cayman. “She brings much needed awareness to a younger audience of women in Cayman who grew up watching her on Beverly Hills, 90210. Many of these women are now at the age where it is recommended they receive their first mammogram.”

“Shannen’s courageous and open battle with breast cancer from diagnosis in 2015 through remission in 2017 has helped change people’s perception of this disease,” added James Bovell, Co-founder and Board Member of the Breast Cancer Foundation of Cayman.

The black tie (actually pink tie), event starts at 6 p.m. with a champagne reception followed by a sumptuous three-course meal, wine included. If you are interested in tickets, they are CI$350 each per person and CI$3,500 for a table of ten. There are also a small number of tables of 12. The Breast Cancer Foundation is looking for sponsors for the event, as well as donations for the auctions.
