Alberton Child Welfare hosted a high-end fundraising winter dinner on Friday 3 June at Thaba Eco Hotel.
Held in conjunction with leading South African wine and spirits producer KWV and musical band A Touch of Class, the event was attended by top businesses and leading members of the local community. Guests were treated to a three course meal coupled with a sponsored brandy, chocolate and fudge tasting by KWV, as well as live entertainment by A Touch of Class. “Alberton Child Welfare has been serving vulnerable families and children for over 75 years. The reason for our existence is to preserve and strengthen families,” said Alberton Child Welfare Board Member Lizanne Booysen-Nel. Booysen-Nel noted that Alberton Child Welfare is going through a difficult financial crisis, adding that fundraisers such as this truly assist the organisation in its endeavours to help the community.
More than R50 000 was raised through the sold tickets alone for the event. Alberton Child Welfare would like to thank all the sponsors who made the evening a success.
