THE Guild of St Mary’s old girls hosted a fun-filled evening for its fundraising event at Bellevue Café on May 26.

On arrival, guests were greeted with sparkling wine and mingled to the sounds of saxophones from the St Mary’s Jazz Ensemble.

Thank you to Victoria Verbaan for her lovely artwork once again which adorned the tables, creating a festive atmosphere.

An assortment of food and speciality bars were enjoyed throughout the evening with the trendy Bellevue Café garden veranda providing the perfect atmosphere for the artisanal gin, craft beer on tap, wine and sparkling wine.

A variety of giveaways, raffles and the ever-popular silent auction were held during the evening, adding to the festivities as guests danced the night away.

Thanks to the sponsors of the silent auction items, giveaway and raffle prizes (Bfor Mobile, Audio Architex), the guild was able to raise over R120 000 for its beneficiaries, the St Mary’s Foundation Trust, and The Inanda Soup Kitchen NPO 121-981.

The St Mary’s Foundation Trust’s purpose is to change the lives of girls still to come and to continue the school legacy into the future.

To ensure St Mary’s vision of inspiring girls to become remarkable women is impactful, sustainable and enduring.

In addition, Inanda Soup Kitchen will receive R15 000 of the funds raised. Founded in 2015 by St Mary’s old girl Robyn O’Donovan, the kitchen is based next to a church near Inanda Dam and runs every Wednesday at lunch time, when up to 180 children arrive after school to enjoy a hot meal. O’Donovan, together with her friend Hlengiwe, hope to extend the programme to include supporting and furthering the education of some of the bright stars they’ve identified from their work.

A big thank you to the sponsors of the evening, Greg Setzkorn of Setzkorn Health and Wealth Consulting, and Ian Brake of Bioharmony, for their support.
