THE Guild of St Mary’s Old Girls’ fund-raising event, the French Bistro, promises to be an evening which indulges the senses - French food paired with fabulous wines, combined with great music and festive company.
Taking place on Saturday, 11 June at 6.30pm at Bellevue Café in Kloof, tickets are R500 per person - proceeds will be used to build the St Mary’s Foundation Trust and support the Inanda Soup Kitchen.

The St Mary’s Foundation was created for advancing the interests of St Mary’s to be an everlasting school. Its goal is to create a capital fund with the interest earned being used to transform lives through the provision of financial support.
The foundation would like to grow this programme so it can assist more girls in the years to come. In addition, the Inanda Soup Kitchen NPO 121-981 will be receiving a portion of the funds raised. Based next to a church near Inanda Dam, the soup kitchen runs every Wednesday, providing between 150 and 180 children a much-needed hot meal after school. It costs between R350 and R400 a week to feed the children so the donation will be greatly appreciated.

According to one of the main sponsors, Greg Setzkorn of Setzkorn Health and Wealth Consulting, it is an honour to be associated with this event since its inception seven years ago, not only for the close link he has with the school but because of the numerous charities which have benefitted from the funds over the years.
“Through the St Mary’s Old Girls’ fund-raising events Setzkorn Health and Wealth has been able to support The Sunflower Fund, the Jes Foord Foundation, Choc, the KZN Blind and Deaf Society and now the Inanda Soup Kitchen which, as a family and business, we are delighted with,” said Setzkorn.

Whispering Waters Resort was also involved with the guild fund-raising event in 2015 and has increased its contribution this year to be a co-main sponsor with Setzkorn Health and Wealth Consulting.

A big thank you also needs to be extended to associate sponsors, SoHOT solar panel pool heaters and Lipsano lip care for their generous support and to Jan-Nico Coetzee, who will be describing the various wines served on the evening and the reason for the pairing with the food.

The R500 ticket includes a three-course French meal, complimentary wine and a gift for each lady. To book for the event or to sponsor a prize, contact the guild chairperson, Derry Jurgensen, on 083 786 1829 or email her on derrybj@telkomsa.net
