On Saturday, 15 July, philanthropists, influencers, celebrities, entrepreneurs, business owners, and media from across South Africa joined together in support of a charitable cause at the sixth annual 5 For Change gala. Over R250 000 was raised in support of five beneficiaries; Khaya Le Langa, Numeric, Sunshine Cinema, Dine with Khayelitsha, and Community Keeper.
All proceeds from the gala event will be distributed to the various beneficiaries’, in support of community development in South Africa. “Even through the difficult economic times, the generosity shines through and the evening was a smashing success. Once again, we are humbled by the incredible support at the 5 For Change Gala,” says one of the 5 For Change co-founders.
5 For Change look forward to hosting the next event in 2018 as the seventh annual charitable gala, but there is still time to contribute to this year’s beneficiaries.
5 For Change acknowledges all the sponsors who made the evening a success, especially Belvedere as the official liquor sponsor, Krone, and Something Different.
