Night of the Stars 2016

Our annual Night of the Stars was a dazzling affair hosted at the One & Only Hotel, Cape Town on Friday 10 June. The event is an invite-only occasion, reserved to thank the top donors of the Foundation and display the progress we have made over the past year.

This years’ guest speaker was Advocate Kevin Malunga, Deputy Public Protector of South Africa. The Foundation has enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the Public Protectors office over the past three years, and pertinent issues are discussed at every event we host. This year was no different.

The keynote address was delivered by Minister Debbie Schafer of the Western Cape Department of Education, who used the platform to give guests and donors valuable insight into the challenges facing education in the country.

Guests were suprised by heartwarming performances by the learners at Manzomthombo Secondary School – a beneficiary of the Foundation – who displayed incredible talent on the evening. Stellar entertainment was provided by comedian Prins, who had the crowd on their toes throughout the event.

All donors present were formally recognised for their much needed contributions, used for improving the quality of healthcare and education in South Africa.

We look forward to seeing you at Night of the Stars 2017, to be hosted in Johannesburg.
