“ONE MORNING IN AFRICA” BRUNCH
@ The Royal Marang ***** Hotel – Bafokeng Sports Campus
On Saturday 15th October 2011, Hospice Rustenburg hosted a, much looked forward to, fund raising event “One Morning in Africa” Brunch featuring the Choir and the Marimba Band of Lebone ll College. This was held at the impressive and sumptuous Royal Marang Hotel.
The Marimba Band, led by the Band Master, Joe Cossa, entertained the guests with their background music from 10h00, their arrangement complementary to the theme of the Brunch, namely “One Morning in Africa”.
A delightful gift package was at each place setting – a bookmark, names of the various and most generous sponsors who provided so many gifts for lucky draw prizes, as well as a beautifully beaded Hospice Angel as a memento of this splendid occasion. The beaded angels were made by the Support Groups within the organisation.
George Vagionakis, Hospice Board Treasurer and Master of Ceremonies for the occasion, charmingly welcomed the guests. Ruth Durrant, Acting CEO of Hospice Rustenburg, then also sincerely welcomed all guests thanking them for their support of Hospice Rustenburg.
George called upon Mike Durrant to say grace during which he thanked God for the healing work that Hospice does.
Lebone II Choir members made an ululating, dancing entrance led by their Choir Master, Gareth Dry. Their programme was one of Traditional African music. Their lovely voices simply breathed Africa. The narration explained the content of each piece performed. Some songs brought forth uninhibited dancing and further ululating guest response.
The Brunch menu was a gastronomically delightful experience! Guests could not resist returning again and again to enjoy the wonderful array and display of the most enjoyable 5 Star fare.
Sherry Dwyer, member of the Hospice Board, and Margaret Ashton, Chairperson of Hospice Board, thanked Lebone II College for its talented band and choir which provided so much pleasure for the guests, as also The Royal Marang Hotel staff for the wonderful brunch, and last but not least the Hospice Staff for a wonderful occasion.
Hospice Rustenburg is endebted to Rustenburgers for their overwhelmingly generous support of “One Morning in Africa”.
All monies raised is to be used to further Hospice’s work of offering home-based palliative care to people and their families in and around Rustenburg.
In October each year a day is set aside world-wide to remember the work of Hospices throughout the world. The theme for 2011 is “many illnesses, many lives and many voices”. Hospice Rustenburg is proud to be part of the bigger picture and celebrate “World Hospice Palliative Care Day” in this way.
