Sponsors have played a big part in our success from the beginning, and we are grateful for their generous and ongoing support. Whether enabling us to run programs, or supporting our campaigns, our sponsors have made it possible for us to enhance the lives of the teens and young adults with disabilities who have participated in our programs.
The Grand Cayman Marriott has been our host hotel since 2009. Everyone at the hotel embraces Stay-Focused and the staff does an amazing job of making our participants feel welcome and at home. We are delighted Hermes Cuello, the GM of the hotel, is a member of our Cayman board.
In 2017, we ran our first, one-week program at the Ritz, to accommodate an overflow situation at the Marriott. In 2018 and 2019, we ran two programs at the Ritz, and are very grateful for the generous support we receive from both the Ritz and the Marriott in balancing our program needs. We returned to the Ritz-Carlton in 2022 for a “reunion” program, and again in 2023 for two programs. We are most grateful to Marc Langevin and his team for the generous support they provide Stay-Focused.
The Westin Grand Cayman hosted one of our programs in the summer of 2023, joining the ranks of our generous sponsors. In addition to hosting a dinner for each of our groups, The Westin provided rooms and meals for our first-time diver program, August 18 – 24. Many thanks to Jim Mauer, Michael Zolcak, and Luca Minasola for their support. We look forward to building on our partnership with The Westin in the years ahead.
Red Sail Sports has been our diving operations partner since we ran our first program in 2004, and sponsors all aspects of our diving program. It’s an understatement to say we couldn’t have achieved our success without the support provided by Red Sail Sports.
Sunset Divers has provided generous support to Stay-Focused for many years, for which we are immensely grateful. We are fortunate to have access to the sea pool for the first dives of our first-time divers and refresher dives for our reunion divers. Many thanks to Mel Hart and her team for assisting our divers and ensuring our divers enjoy safe and fun dives.
We have benefitted tremendously from many sponsors, in Cayman and the US. We feel privileged to recognize them by including their logos in this section of our website.
