Jail & Bail – Lotsa Love for Tots
FOOD4AFRICA is having a Fundraising Event in Lorraine, Port Elizabeth on Mothers day 11th May 2008 at the Baakens Greek Golf Club. We hope that this will so successful that we can make it an annual event.
The idea of the JAIL n BAIL came from Meg who is a friend of Len Harvey’s. He is the F4A representative in the Eastern Cape.
Celebs will be “jailed’ and funds raised will bail them out.
A F4A team will be selling tickets to the event at all local Spar Supermarkets. The cost is R30p/p and R15p/child. The Baakens Creek Golf Club is sponsoring the Jumping castle, Potjiekos competition, beer tent and the DJ live music. We have received various prizes from companies to hand out on the day as spot prizes.
The Highlight of the day will be the Charity Auction at 15h00. The Elan Property Group gave us a SA 2007 Rugby Flag– signed by John Smit and Butch James– Also a photograph of John Smit signed by him. There is also one of soccer star Lucas Radebe.
This is one of the poorest and neediest communities in South Africa. The children suffer because of the high unemployment rate and the HIV and AIDS affects on their families.
