A Night of Magic and Entertainment

The Gorgon and Gundelfinger families have joined hands with CANSA to help raise funds, but more importantly to create awareness for breast cancer by hosting a fundraising dinner on 1 December 2019.

“It’s important to create awareness for breast cancer as early detection is vital,” says Tharina Gordon who herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. The funds raised at this event includes raising awareness of on breast cancer and how early detection can save lives through regular breast examinations and screenings.

The evening promises to be a joyful event with South African entertainers Danny K and Lloyd Cele, as well as the sensational magician, Wian van den Berg. The dinner takes place at Olives and Plates at Hyde park corner on 1 December 2019.

One of the most talked-about items on auction is a designer one-of-a-kind Rooibos Bra, made almost entirely of Rooibos tea bags.

Gordon adds, “Many thanks to the SA Rooibos Council for donating the bra to charity and Storm in A-G Cup for creating such an exquisite work of art! All proceeds raised from the auction of the Rooibos bra and other beautiful items will go towards CANSA for health and education programmes as well as care and support for cancer survivors.”

The event promises to be a night of magic and entertainment with many wonderful prizes up for auction, with the charming, Mr World South Africa Dr Fezile Mkhize being the master of ceremonies.
