Curtis Dickinson, Executive Vice President and Group Head of Private Banking at Butterfield said, “Many of us at Butterfield have seen first-hand the benefits of Endeavour’s STEAM education and sailing instruction with our own children, so we’re pleased to support this important programme and help ensure that many more kids in our community are able to benefit from it.”

Tom Herbert-Evans said, “We are thrilled to have the support of Butterfield Bank by way of their Denim Day fund raiser, a great initiative that has made a meaningful contribution to a great program!

“The America’s Cup Endeavour program is unique to Bermuda and the 35th America’s Cup event legacy, thanks to the support of the America’s Cup Event Authority and the programs sponsors, partners and donors, the program has created more community impact that any other in the History of the America’s Cup. Something that Bermuda can be proud of and will continue to operate post July 2017!”
