Wow… so glad I bought a ticket! What an awesome night for R150 — and it’s going to charity!
The benefit concert was in aid of the My Life Foundation, for people with special needs.
The concert featured a key South African musician who has served as lead vocalist and founder of the band Just Jinjer, Ard Matthews, along with other equally inspiring artists including D7, Zolani from Freshly Ground, Louise Day, Jack Parow, and Laudo from aKing
The Upper East Side Hotel in Woodstock was the venue …and the verdict? — very chic!
The Wings Group were giving away Riesen chocolate for a small donation and I must say, despite my tight leopard print dress I made a bee-line for the choccies before anything else!
I started with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and by the end of the evening I was very merry indeed… at some point breakdancers from the foundation hit the floor and things only got more festive from there
There were DJ’s there from a local radio station called “2OceansVibe”…. They were awesome guys and gave me a chance to take-over the mic live on air!
I used to be a Radio DJ at my university’s radio station – the University of Cape Town’s “UCT RADIO”- so I wasn’t too shabby as I spoke about the event on air
They were very impressed!:)
The evening was organised by the Little Black Book PR & Events Group – and wow their events always seem have a powerful impact… love them!
I was so excited that Michael Burt, of sassy Michiko London fashion boutique in Cavendish Square, gave me one of his dresses to wear for the night:)
