Event: Community Chest Carnival

2013-02-20 10:07
The Community Chest Carnival is best described as a theatrical garden party has evolved into a pageant of international food, local entertainment and family fun, which attracts over 80 000 people.

The event has become signature on the Community Chest’s fundraising calendar and contributes to the support it provides to over 400 organisations throughout the Western Cape.

These civil society organisations provide vital services ranging from healthcare and rehabilitation to child support and care of the elderly. In some rural areas they are the only service providers to marginalised communities.

One of the reasons for Carnival’s success as a fundraising vehicle is that it is run almost entirely by volunteers, enabling the organisers to keep costs to a minimum. Some 7 000 individuals donate their time, skills and experience to ensure that each year’s event is better than the previous one.
