Land to be Auctioned at Rotary's CAMELOT
April 26th, 2010 - The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman is pleased to announce that one of the big bid items at the upcoming Camelot Auction will be a prized piece of property located in Newlands. The development, called The Island at Newland Sound handed over the deed to the property recently to the Director of Fundraising, John Felder.
"Every year we have a few huge items that are up for offer during the live auction. Of course, there are many ways to bid on this piece of land.... you could attend the May 21st event, which is most fun, you can place a bid online at camelot.ky or you can send a representative to bid on your behalf", comments Mr. Felder.
In particular, Rotary would like to thank the Newlands development for working closely with the club to ensure the property gets sold the night of the event to one lucky bidder.
