What a special morning we enjoyed at The Citadel in Claremont at the annual Women’s Day Celebration hosted by The Players’ Fund on 11 August.

On arrival at the beautiful venue, Mister Barista welcomed all with a coffee, you had a choice of a glass of bubbles, juice, energy shots or Thirsti water, as well as jars filled with delicious sweet treats. What a start to a inspirational morning.

After saluting the phenomenal achievements by Women in the last decade, guests were introduced to Players’ Fund recipient, JP Lugt – Quadraplegic, husband, father, entrepreneur and businessman as well as key note speaker Zohra Sooliman, wife of Imtiaaz, both co- founder of The Gift of the Givers. Two very inspirational speakers were ably quizzed about their incredible lives by Dr. Phatho Zondi, fund trustee, exercise physician, strategist and athlete.

Raffle tickets were on sale with 22 fabulous prizes up for grabs.

Proceedings were closed off with a word of thanks from former Springbok captain and Players’ Fund Chairman Jean de Villiers. The guests then enjoyed brunch snack boxes and delicious cupcakes with a little more socializing before heading off to other day duties.

Thank you to all sponsors for their generous support of this magical event.

Till next year ladies!
