S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind (GDA) is proud to announce their third annual Gala Dinner taking place on Saturday, 14 October 2017, 7pm at Kelvin Grove in Newlands to commemorate World Sight Day that is recognised internationally on the second Thursday of October.
The Association appeals to the public and corporate sector to support the annual event by purchasing a seat or hosting a table of ten for an evening of fun and great entertainment. The evening promises to leave you moved by the wonderful people and their four legged mobility aids to which the evening is dedicated – raising funds for this very worthy cause, which train dogs to provide independence, mobility and companionship to those who need it most.
Guests will be treated a decadent three course meal accompanied by the divine Miss Molly range of wines and bubbly from Môreson Wine Farm (wine sponsor for the event). The highlight of the evening will be entertainment by Cape Town’s very own winner of The Voice 2016, Richard Stirton. Guests will be inspired by the talent of Guide Dog Owners playing the cello and guest speaker Lois Strachan, Guide Dog Owner, author and motivational speaker extradonaire. Host and MC for the evening will be the very talented TV and radio presenter, Danilo Acquisto.
“The Gala Dinner is our biggest and most important event which raises awareness and substantial funding needed to train more working dogs for Cape Town. There is no better occasion than hosting this event in commemoration of World Sight Day which this year falls on 12 October 2017. Through the training of more dogs, we can empower our differently abled community. We rely on the public, our biggest supporters to help us make this difference.” – Teagan Schwerin, S A Guide-Dogs Marketing Manager
