R210 000 raised at Rock in White Party

Guests, attired in white, mingled before the start of the 'Rock in White' party.

On Friday, 27 July, friends and supporters of the Franschhoek Hospitality Academy came together for a sensational evening at the academy’s ‘Rock in White’ fundraiser held at ROCA Restaurant.

ROCA’s team were phenomenal from the start, working closely with To-Netts Décor to add beautiful touches to the venue, which only enhanced its already eye-catching ambiance. Guests arrived in white and were ready to dance the night away with the Uncorked Band, who stole the show and put on an exceptional performance which was enjoyed by everyone in attendance.

Doug Gurr wore two hats for the night, one being a member of the band and the other, the auctioneer for the evening! His energy and charisma charmed the room, raising a whopping R180 000, while the rest of the funds came in through event and raffle tickets sales.

All proceeds will go towards ensuring the Franschhoek Hospitality Academy can continue their efforts of changing the lives of the youth in our disadvantaged communities in 2019 and for many years to come.

Thank you to Craig Sherrel, Janine and Chef Norman and the ROCA Restaurant Team, Auctioneer Doug Gurr and the Uncorked Band and To-Nett’s Decor, our funders, prize sponsors and Ambassadors: Margot Janse, Reuben Riffel, Matthew Gordon, Chris Erasmus and JP Smith for your incredible support in making the event possible! #Change4Twenty
