Annual dinner-dance

Since 2012 the executive volunteer team has hosted a highly popular annual winter dinner dance where funds are raised by auctioning donated prizes.

Dinner – 11 August 2017, Suikerbossie, Hout Bay

The successful 6th HET Annual Dinner Dance was held at Suikerbossie Restaurant on 11 August 2017 with just under 200 guests attending [2016: 233 guests]. It was organised by a team of HET volunteers lead by Karen Temlett and raised R190 000 [2016: R250 000, 2015: R175 000]. It was an uplifting evening in celebration of the amazing achievement of the last year: a new preprimary school building in Hangberg and now a happy, safe, well managed haven for 109 pre-school children.

A big shout of thanks to our kind sponsors and supporters that made this evening and new school possible.

Wayne McKay kept guests on their toes, musician Guy Feldman and DJ Archie ensured that guests danced until the wee hours of the morning. Suikerbossie Restaurant’s service and fare was from the heavens and spot on time. Further, a R50 000 cheque handover from Rotary Club Am Kap1’s president Carole Armstrong-Hooper marked the club’s continued support of the school. Most importantly, the dinner allowed time for many old acquaintances from our Valley to be rekindled.

Thank you to the incredible sponsors that made the 2017 dinner event possible.

These funds were used towards the R350 000 school construction shortfall. The team’s warmest gratitude to the kind sponsors that made this possible with their generous donations of 113 items and more than 120 wine bottles. Further the exciting Support-a-child challenge was launched by Mr André Cheminais at the dinner. Mr Cheminais put out a challenge to all at the dinner to sponsor a child for a year at R4 000 per annum and he immediately pledged support for three children.
