The Cape Cultural Collective (CCC) held its fifth Winter Vibes fundraiser to help support youth projects at St Paul’s Anglican Church Hall in Rondebosch on Friday. The event was part of many initiatives by this organisation that aim to empower community-based projects and developments. About 200 people attended the event and helped raise R16 000 of the targetted R20 000.

The organisation’s secretary, Elizabeth Schutter, says: “Winter Vibes is our 5th fundraiser with this format. Proceeds will fund many of the CCC’s projects including choirs, cultural projects and developmental work. It always has a good vibe and we are targeted choir members, friends and families and the many regulars that have been supporting our programmes for many years.”

Schutter added that this was the organisation’s unique ability to bring people together to support the work of the locals while enjoying great entertainment and food.

One of the members of the benefiting project, June Knight, says they are glad the event was a success. She says the money is going to help fund the transport costs and other monthly costs.

The fundraising event was honoured by the presence of veteran DJ’s Zenariah Barend and Noel Daniels who wowed the crowd with their music. During the event a raffle and American auction was held and prizes were also won. V The organisation will be holding a Free Cultural Concert of Healing and Social Justice at the Shawco Hall in Elsies River for the community of Elsies River this Saturday at 15:00.
