Hosted by Boity Thulo, this fun event will feature top band Mi Casa performing all their hits, and more.
Tickets for this event cost R500 each and will include a set food menu and select beverage options and are available from Computicket.
All proceeds will go to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust, helping build the Hospital.
This fundraiser event will form part of a wider ambassadorship programme for the Hospital Trust that also includes other popular South African personalities such as ProVerb, Thabiso Sikwane, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Azania Mosaka, Theo Kgosinkwe, Ms Cosmo, Mapaseka Mokwele and MuzArt lending their names to the cause.
“We are really excited to see our celebrity ambassadors coming on board and using their profiles to help us raise funds,” added Lutseke.
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust is fundraising to reach a target of R1-billion to build and equip the hospital, as well as train medical professionals to work in it. To date, they have passed the halfway mark, which allowed them to begin construction on the hospital in April. The hospital is expected to open in 2016.
She also thanked all the stakeholders who helped make these events happen; Computicket, for waving their tickets fees and selling them on their behalf, media partners SABC, Kaya FM, Primedia and Jacaranda FM who have come on board to assist with promoting the events, as well as Hard Rock Cafe Johannesburg. The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital will be a world class, highly specialised children’s hospital that will change the lives of the children of Africa and shape the future of a greater Africa. It will work on a referral basis across all its centres of excellence.
The hospital will be located adjacent to Wits University’s Medical School in Parktown, Johannesburg. This is in close proximity to other medical facilities, and allows for paediatric academic teaching access from the Wits Medical School, maximising operational efficiencies and staffing models.
The hospital will employ approximately 150 doctors and 451 paediatric nursing professionals, as well as allied services.
