Family Centre will be holding its Cup Match Tag Day, with people able to purchase their Cup Match ribbons online via the Sargasso Sea app.

A spokesperson said, “Family Centre, Clarien Bank and Sargasso Sea are teaming up to celebrate Bermuda’s return to the Cup Match Game. Family Centre Cup Match Tag Day ribbons are now available for purchase. Show your support for vulnerable children and families and support your favourite Cup Match team through purchase of your team ribbons. Title Sponsor of the event, Clarien Bank, and delivery agent, Sargasso Sea, are committed to ensuring that children and families in Bermuda can get the help they need.

“They will be supporting the sale of Family Centre Cup Match Ribbons throughout the month of July. Visit Family Centre here or or call Family Centre at 232-1116 to secure your Cup Match ribbons while supplies last.

According to Dr. Sandy De Silva, Family Centre Executive Director, “Cup Match has been a much anticipated event this year for everyone, especially Family Centre. We are all looking forward to watching our favourite team step up to the wicket on July 29. Family Centre is excited to again offer our popular Cup Match ribbons as part of our annual Cup Match Tag Day fundraiser. We are asking the community to support their favourite team by wearing their team ribbons. This Tag Day we want to sell out of all of our ribbons. Bermuda, please help us meet our goal of selling just shy of 3,000 ribbons.

“We want to see our ribbons on locals, visitors, hoteliers, hospitality workers, store attendees and everyone at the game. Show your Cup Match spirit, but most importantly show how you are making a difference in a child’s life. This event is a major fundraiser for Family Centre and all proceeds from our ribbon sales go towards providing free community outreach programmes such as Youth Leadership Academy, Beyond Rugby and Beyond Yoga and counselling services for children between 4-18 years old and their families.”

Michael DeCouto, EVP, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer at Clarien Bank stated, “Clarien is pleased to be the title sponsor of the Family Centre Cup Match Tag Day for the past 19 years. We are excited that Sargasso Sea has again teamed up with Family Centre to keep the Spirit of Cup Match going. Clarien Bank fully supports the critical work Family Centre does to strengthen our children and families in Bermuda.

“We ask you to join us, especially this year, to support your Cup Match team through the purchase of your team ribbons and help ensure Family Centre is successful in their Tag Day to raise vital funds for their therapeutic programmes and services. On behalf of Clarien Bank Management and staff have a fun, safe and responsible Cup Match Holiday. May the most popular team on or off the pitch win the 2021 Cup Match game.”

Sargasso Sea owner, Colin Rego explains, “The Sargasso Team is excited to see our historic Cup Match game return to the field. The ability of the Sargasso Platform to serve a greater need was highlighted during the pandemic and is important to us at Sargasso. We are honored to support the Family Centre and Clarien in hosting the annual Cup Match Tag Day Ribbon Campaign, as we know how critical the funds raised during this time are to sustaining therapeutic programmes for children and families.”

Thania Redman, Family Centre Fund Development Lead noted, “Funds raised from our Tag Day and Cup Match Ribbons sales ensure that families receive therapeutic services and care they need free of charge without making the tough decision between having food and electricity or caring for their emotional wellbeing.
