Industry Fundraising Dinner & Auction 2017
On 8 June 2017, Go for Gold hosted yet another spectacular Industry Fundraising Dinner and Auction but this year at Shimmy Beach Club at the V&A Waterfront. Shimmy Beach Club, one of Cape Town’s premier ocean-front venues effortlessly added to the evening’s indulgence in supporting Go for Gold.
Highlights of the event included some well-known entertainers such as the unforgettable MC Liezel van der Westhuizen, the enchanting trio Sterling EQ, local but lekker Cape Town comedian Mel Jones, the highly esteemed guest speaker, Professor Piet Naudé, Director at the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) and last but not least, the witty auctioneer, Mr Joey Burke from GoIndustry Dovebid.
The Go for Gold Education-to-Employment programme directly responds to the crisis around youth employability in South Africa, while satisfying the great need in the built environment for skilled, groomed and technically qualified personnel. Investment in Go for Gold carries a long-term and meaningful impact though our beneficiaries who not only create positive contributions to our partner company as loyal employees; but also contribute towards addressing our country crisis of youth unemployment and breaking the cycle of poverty.
Go for Gold enjoyed the support of 300 guests that night who ceaselessly showed their passion for Education and Transformation for the South African youth Go for Gold work with. The evening raised an impressive, generous amount of R636,990.00 for the Go for Gold programme and their beneficiaries.
