RAINBOW and Smiles will be hosting a “dinner ‘n dance” on Saturday 10 September to raise funds for the organisation.

Rainbows and Smiles was founded in 2012 and aims to provide emotional, social and financial support to families and caregivers in need when a child (or children) of that family is diagnosed with cancer.
Rainbows and Smiles encourage childhood cancer advocacy and Gold Ribbon Awareness to educate people, in the hope of promoting early detection. Their principles include creating hope, smiles and relief for families and caregivers of children with cancer.

According to Debbie Riggen of Rainbows and Smiles the organisation relies heavily on public support that enables them to support many families where children are fighting cancer.

“With September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month I planned this event to take place during the month to help create awareness,” she said.

Tickets are R300 per person or R3 000 for a table of 10 or companies wanting to treat their staff and include a sit-down dinner at the Kloof Country Club. All proceeds will go to Rainbows and Smiles and ultimately will be spent on the children.

“People who can't attend, but who would like to help in some way, donations of items for auction are still needed or donations can be made directly into the Rainbows and Smiles bank account. Use the reference “Dance, donation” and your name.
“Proof of payment can be emailed to me,” said Riggen.

There will be a raffle as well as a mini-auction.

For banking details or inquiries, contact Riggien on 060 527 0220 (WhatsApp, SMS or phone) or deb bie@rainbowsandsmiles.org.za
