Project Description

This year marked the 14th year that A-Plus Communications with headline sponsor HP, South Africa hosted the Annual Women’s Day Luncheon at the beautiful Summerplace in Saxonwold.

The chosen charity for this year was 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day. Our guest speaker was the amazing Carolyn Steyn, founder of 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day.

Guests really outdid themselves and dressed to the Afro Chic theme and arrived with piles of blankets, some truly beautiful hand-made ones and other purchased. After lunch there was a lucky draw for some wonderful prizes and as always our guests opened their pockets too and this rounded up our donation to R67 000.00. to 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day.
Thanks to the generosity of our guests we also collected over 700 balls of wool that will be used to make more blankets for various underprivileged communities around the country.
