The TCD Trust Fundraiser 2011 Rocked !

On the 3 September the TCD Trust held our second annual fundraiser at the Mount Nelson Hotel. We raised close to R130 000.00 in one night! Funds raised on the evening will go towards building a proper wendy house structure for RGG crèche in Philippi, Cape Town, replacing their leaking shack. This will change the lives of these incredible woman who have worked so hard to establish this crèche and the wendy house structure is their final hurdle to cross. We thank the Mount Nelson Hotel who sponsored the venue, meal and wine on the evening, our guests who supported us, our sponsors who provided prizes for our raffle and auction, without you this would not have been possible.

Our MC, Vernon Kirsten entertains the crowd and helped us to raise R58 700.00 on our auction !

Di Thomas, TCD Trust Trustee, and her son, Ricky, cycled across South Africa in the middle of winter in the Freedom Challenge. They raised R30 100.00 for GCU Soccer Academy to buy football equipment for the club. Pictured here is Mario from GCU receiving the cheque from Di & Ricky.

Thobekile and two of the teachers from RGG crèche performed two of her own compositions of music and poetry on the evening which was so brilliant that there was complete silence in the room as everyone listened to the music and thought provoking lyrics.

And then the party ROCKED !


Next year make sure you book early if you also want to be part of the fun.
