A Masifunde Rainbow Spring Tea is being organised by the third year PR students of Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and will take place at the PE MOTH Bowls Club on Saturday 6 October from 11h00. The tea offers great food sponsored by Rich’s and Heavenly Treats, entertainment and the opportunity to give back to a truly worthy cause. A fashion show with designs by Love Trunk and Bridal Flair and musical performers will keep guests entertained while they enjoy their fabulous tea. Each guest will also take home a goodie bag valued at over R100.
Most exciting of all, though, are the prizes on offer. One of the fundraising initiatives at the event is an American Auction. The American Auction format means that guests hold up notes (R10, R20, R50) while music is played. A runner dashes between the tables collecting all the notes. The last person to have put their note in the bag when the music stops, wins the prize. Masifunde has been fortunate to procure some excellent prizes for the American Auction. Georgiou Hotel and Spa has sponsored a couples stay in their honeymoon suite for 1 night with limo collection, a three course meal at the Cattle Baron steakhouse and breakfast in bed valued at R5500, Massmart has sponsored a 7kg Samsung Deep Foam Washing machine (valued at R3999), Kuzuko Lodge has sponsored a one night stay for two to the value of R3400 and Havilah Jewellers has sponsored two Pandora bracelets and charms to the value of over R1000 each. Veaudry International is also sponsoring three hair irons to the value of R2000 each.
The prizes do not stop there as the team has also secured a number of lucky draw and spot prizes for the event, including back, neck and shoulder massages from Georgiou Spa, Cattle Baron vouchers, beauty hampers for the Beauty Academy International, and vouchers for entry to Monkeyland and Birds of Eden in Plettenburg Bay valued at over R400 each.
All proceeds do to Masifunde Learner Development. Masifunde offers a learner development program in the heart of Walmer Township, Port Elizabeth. It is a non-governmental and non- profit organization that provides educational development for under-privileged children, and is relatively established within the community. It is important to note that education, in this sense, is inclusive of the teaching of life skills in addition to schooling. Masifunde was founded in 2003 by Jonas Schumacher, a former NMMU– exchange student. It is a German-South African Company and most of its funding is acquired through German benefactors. Masifunde is thus a result of foreign intervention and registered as a Section 21 company.
The tea costs just R120. Tickets are limited.
Raffle tickets will also be on sale at the event. For R10, participants stand a chance of winning a DSTV decoder and installation sponsored by Multichoice, a back, neck and shoulder massage courtesy of Georgiou Hotel and Spa or a chocolate hamper brimming with Cadbury products.
