As promised, we are here to brighten up your Thursday with more awesome news about how our work is helping the world of conservation and educating the youth of South Africa. Here are some of the happenings from earlier this year!
GAUTENG BRYANSTON FUNDRAISER
On the 20th of February 2019, the LiC Gauteng team hosted an extremely successful fundraiser at the beautiful Bryanston Country Club. The guests enjoyed a delicious meal and were privileged enough to be addressed by some very influential people in the industry. Fantastic and informative speeches were given by many, including Les Carlisle, the Group Conservation Manager at &Beyond and a man who has been hugely influential in establishing &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, and Kim Wolhuter, an award-winning maverick photographer, filmmaker and conservationist. We appreciate them taking out the time to come and educate us and make for a great event.
The evening ended with auctions of various photographic and art pieces in order to raise funds to be used in LiC’s cause and more specifically to help fund the FGASA training of one of the programmes most promising prospects, Phiwokhule Masimula.
The auctioned items raised a great deal more money than expected. A special thank you again to Kim Wolhuter, The Platter Project and Derick and Beverley Joubert for their belief in our cause and their generosity towards LiC.
