R100,000 raised for Trust at the T.I.C.E. Spring Ball

The TCD Trust was one of the beneficiaries of the Tourism Industry Charity Event (T.I.C.E.) Spring Ball, held on Friday 31st August 2007 at the CTICC in Cape Town. The annual charity event raised over R200,000 this year with the proceeds shared between the two well-deserved beneficiaries: the TCD Trust and Home of Hope.

The event, facilitated by ASATA, CAPE TOWN TRAVEL WOMEN’S CLUB, FEDHASA, SATSA & SKAL INTERNATIONAL, included welcome drinks, 3-course dinner, live music, dancing, performance from the Amy Biehl Choir, a Grand Charity Auction and and a lucky draw with many fantastic prizes.

A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all individuals and companies from the South African tourism industry that braved the “not-quite-yet-Spring” weather to attend the event. A further special mention must go out to Anne Lamb and her organising committee, the “TICE MICE” for arranging the superb event.

As one of the beneficiaries of the event, the TCD Trust had an opportunity to tell guests a bit more about the trust. Di Thomas, TCD trustee, delivered a compelling presentation which showcased some of the trust’s previous projects, as well as giving a glimpse of the trust’s upcoming (and most ambitious) event to date.

For those that were not able to attend the event, please view the TICE presentation and Blomvlei project videos that were presented by Di.

Thank you once again – one and all :)
