Angels’ Auction 2011

Travelstart Angels

Back, by popular demand! The Travelstart Angels are to host their second auction this Friday, 2 September 2011 in our swanky restaurant in our Cape Town offices. We’ll have drinks and snacks available and the event will be MC’d by Travelstart’s own Mr Personality – Wouter Nel. All are welcome to join!

Who the proceeds are going to

This year the proceeds are going toward  an incredible initiative we recently discovered on the outskirts of Cape Town’s vibrant city centre, The Service Dining Rooms. Established in 1935, this heartfelt soup kitchen manages to serve 500 hot, nourishing meals from their facilities daily, with a further 500 meals taken out to the underpriviledged in the townships thereafter.

The Travelstart Angels have visited the premises to discover that these hard-working volunteers, or rather, earth angels, need a helping hand. The monies raised at our auction this coming Friday will aid in improving on their already outstanding service. Our plans for The Service Dining Rooms include, amongst other things, purchasing a much needed deep freeze and creating a website that will allow for better awareness of their establishment.

Last year we raised over R12000 for the Ra-ees Khan Fund in under an hour. This year we’re aiming much, much higher! We’ve exceeded our expectations in sponsorship this year and have received generous donations.
