Beef up your support

Following on the successful “Most Expensive Burger in Town” event held in Stellenbosch last year, Community Keepers will be collaborating with other local businesses to host fundraiser events this year. An event will be hosted at Upstairs on Bree on Thursday 13 October.

Community Keepers is a non-profit organisation established in 2008. They offer professional psychological and social services at schools in Stellenbosch and Cape Town.

The fundraiser events support the Community Keeper school-based services, which aims to assist learners, parents and teachers to deal with emotional challenges. These challenges often hinder children from being able to optimally utilise the educational opportunities offered by schools. The programme and services are delivered by qualified professionals, including counsellors, psychologists and social workers.

“At Community Keepers we aim to improve the social and emotional well-being of learners and create supportive school communities where learning and development can prosper,” says Community Keepers CEO Philip Geldenhuys.

“By caring for the social and emotional well-being of learners, we hope to contribute towards their educational development and their overall performance.”

Purchasing a ticket includes a gourmet hamburger, quality wine, locally brewed craft beer and artisan ice cream.

Tickets for the event, starting at 18:00, are R650 on iTickets.
