'Give with your Heart' philanthropy breakfast
Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) Southern Africa, in partnership with Peace Starts, will host a Valentine’s ‘Give with your Heart’ Philanthropy Breakfast on Wednesday 13 February 2013, as their first fundraiser event for the year.
This heart-warming breakfast and networking opportunity will offer guests, both corporate and individual, an opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a way that gives back and enthuses. It will take place at Villa Arcadia (Hollard Campus, 22 Oxford Road, entrance off Federation Road, Parktown) at 8 for 8.30am.
The programme for the morning will include inspiring stories from Olympic 2012 Gold Medalist Sizwe (Lawrence) Ndlovu, Cito (Lead Singer with WONDERboom and Founder of Peace Starts), Elvis Blue (Award-winning Musician) and Brooks Mparutsa (Hollard Insurance Group CFO) speaking about how they have chosen to give with their hearts personally and professionally, ideas on how one can give with one’s heart in easy and every day ways wherever one is, the launch of the CAF Southern Africa ‘Isiphala’ Giving bracelet (a bracelet that signifies that the wearer has chosen to give back in whatever way they can, large or small – all guests will be the first to receive the new Isiphala bracelet as part of their ticket price) and will be the first to hear the launch of Cito’s ‘Messages of Hope from the Mountain’ song*.
Guests will also be serenaded by acclaimed South Africa singer and recording artist Timothy Moloi (double SAMA-nominated) and award-winning musical theatre artist Samantha Peo (Chicago, Aspects of Love & Cabaret).
There will be a brief Q & A session with the Celebrity speakers, as well as a chance to engage and network over breakfast with the other guests attending the event.
The ticket price is R400.00 per person – this includes breakfast, free parking, the opportunity to engage with celebrity guests, entertainment and the Isiphala Giving Bracelet.
All proceeds will go towards the work of Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (Community Development Partner assisting over 500 validated NGOs across all sectors) & a donation towards the work of Peace Starts. Ticket buyers will be eligible for a Section 18A certificate for tax rebate purposes (upon request from CAF Southern Africa).
