Each year one of our staff gets to pick a charity close to their hearts and we see if we can do something to help.
This year, it is Debbies turn … her Mom is one of those angels who work for St Lukes Hospice. Sister Yvonne feels that she does not have enough on her plate so she has decided to walk 175km around the peninsula to increase awareness of, and raise funds for St Lukes Hospice.
We thought is would be a great idea to put together an evening to send her on her way.
So, her rather well known commentator husband (Robin Jackman) will interview Matt Pearce on this years Rugby World Cup and Gary Kirsten on the upcoming Australian cricket tour … this promises to be an evening not to be missed.
We spoke to one of our wine partners, Nitida, and they very kindly offered to forego their wine evening with us and donate the wines for this evening.
Franck then got a tad excited and put together a menu pairing the food to the delicious Nitida wines nogal (French for ‘as well’).
You can check out the menu at … https://www.thefoodbarn.co.za/restaurant/
We know money is not easy to lay our hands on at the moment, and it does not look like it is getting any easier, but this is an evening for us to meet and chat to three of our top sports personalities … and donate some money to one of the most deserving charities on the planet in the process!
Date: Sat 29th October 2011
Cost: R395 pp (excl 10% service)
We look forward to seeing you there.
Pete & Franck
