Boundless Bermuda, a MAMA project for Windreach, welcome you to learn more about their plans to build an all-inclusive play space for children, while helping them raise funds to make it happen aboard the Zara Sunset Cruise on Friday, October 6th.

The cruise departs at 6:30pm from the No.1 Dock on Front Street and will return at 9:30pm, aboard the luxury Zara Catamaran where you can enjoy cocktails and the sunset while learning more about their plans to give children of all abilities the opportunity to wonder, engage, explore, achieve and enjoy.

Following the success of their Wine Tasting and Silent Auction earlier this year, they have begun working with Creating Adventurous Places in the UK to design their dream inclusive play space. The playground has been designed in several phases including; a multilevel adventure tree house, party tower, swing & swirl zones, a sensory walk and shaded, tranquil seating areas – all inspired by the best of Bermuda! They are already in position to begin building phase one in Spring 2018 and are using this opportunity to raise additional funds to add more phases to the initial build.

Tickets are $250 per person, which includes drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and sign-up can be done online at http://conta.cc/2wV9jY4. All net proceeds will go to Boundless Playground.
