THE 12th annual School of Garden Design Breakfast in support of The Sunflower Fund, in association with Mpact Recycling, was a sold-out event with 200 guests gathering at the Chantecler Hotel in Botha’s Hill recently.The event included a hot menu and baked delicacy platters for breakfast, and featured a variety of shopping stalls, a pamper station, courtesy of La Vita Spa, and raffle prizes at combined valued of over R14 000. Guests took home goodie bags, lucky draw prizes and a B.O.N Natural Oils gift.Songstress, Allison Dee, provided the entertainment while editor of The Gardener magazine, media personality and Sunflower Fund ambassador, Tanya Visser, kept audiences spell-bound. Visser’s talk featured “Gardens around the World”.Lindsay Gray of The School of Garden Design was the co-organiser and compere.Funds raised from the breakfast will enable The Sunflower Fund to create awareness, and educate and recruit blood stem cell donors to increase the number of people registered on the South African Bone Marrow Registry. The more donors on the registry means greater hope for patients diagnosed with chronic blood disorders, like leukaemia, who are in need of a live-saving blood stem cell transplant from a matching donor.Thank you to Gray, Visser, Mpact Recycling, B.O.N Natural Oils, Wired Media, Function Foundry, The Biscuitry, Jenning’s Fudge, Oakleigh Funeral Home, La Vita Spa, the South African Hospitality Institute, Drive Control, guests, sponsors and staff and management of Chantecler Hotel for making the event possible.
