THE Hope Jones Foundation in partnership with Nelson Mandela University’s (NMU) BA Media: Communication, and Culture students is proud to present ‘A Vintage Affair’ fashion event at the Tramways Building in Baakens Street Tuesday, October 2.

The fundraiser is the very first of its kind in the Bay, and the event will consist of a combination of fashion, entertainment, cars, food and crafts, all with a vintage twist.

Established by Gary and Deirdre Jones in 2011 after the birth of their second daughter, Hope in 2008, The Hope Jones Foundation is aimed at enabling and empowering children with physical and mental disabilities in Nelson Mandela Bay.

The NMU students teamed up with the foundation as part of their year long public relations project, for which they were tasked to team up with a local NGO to help fulfil their various needs as public relations practitioners.

The line-up of the event includes performances from the NMU ballroom and Latin dance society, a string of stalls, ranging from food, coffees and other refreshments, jewellery, cosmetic, craft and clothing exhibitors.

There will also be plenty of photo opportunities during the event, and one can snap a selfie with the beautiful vintage cars. All photos taken at the event will be published on their events official page after the event for viewing.

Prizes will also be awarded for the best dressed couple and individuals as well as many other prizes to be won.

Doors open at 18:30 and the fashion show will commence at 19:30.

Tickets are available at R100 per person and can be purchased online at, or from Gary Jones on 082 301 9127 or Slindile Ngubo on 076 157 2727.

All proceeds raised will go to the Hope Jones Foundation.
