Fun & Fabulous Halloween party @ The Foodbarn in Aid of the Jones Safe House

It cannot get any better than to have  good food & wine, fun people, groovy music and dress up and do it all for a good cause. This evening really rocked and was over far too quickly!

And the best thing  - We raised over 330.000 rand for the Safe House, which will be an invaluable addition to the education fund for the children.

A big thank you to all those who made this possible, especially:

  • All our amazing guests that made the effort to support this evening 
  • The Foodbarn for superb food, wine, venue & last but not least – their amazing team that made this evening very special
  • The donors of the super fabulous auction items and the generous bidders that bought them
  • Rob van Vuuren - our hilariously funny MC & auctioneer
  • Emma @ Cape Town Balloon & Event Company for the amazing décor – you really outdid yourself this time around
  • Shaun @ Event Photography for the super pics
  • Cape Town School of Magic for entertaining us
  • Black Orchid Burlesque- Villains & Vixxxens for raising the temperature  with an enticing number from their Halloween Varietease show

We are already looking forward to the Halloween Party 2017. Watch this space!

Revamped Bedrooms

Amazing revamped bedrooms at the Safe House thanks to Corinne Nash and her IMO Saskia Botha Fundraiser work.

The 1st of September 2009, my youngest daughter Saskia passed at the age of 3 years and 5 months. This is the ...day I died ... I did not want to live but safe to say I had to be re-born again and learn to live again and THANKS BE TO GOD, here I am not only functioning again but really living and loving. We CHOOSE TO LIVE, LOVE AND TO PAY IT FORWARD and we wanted to help! 
In 2013 we held our first Fundraising dance in Memory of Saskia in order to raise funds for those less privileged and we chose the Jones Safe House. 
Since 2013 the Fundraising committee of IMO SASKIA BOTHA have managed to raise money to assist with groceries, education a little breakaway holiday and now we have managed to do up 2 of the rooms in the new house as well. We will also put in built-in cupboards. 
The fundraising in Memory of Saskia has also generated loads of generous donations from Lewis Stores, The Manna Bay Boutique Hotel, Flowers for Africa and the AWII not to mention the wonderful people that attend the event in order to give back plus many others. 
This has been an uplifting experience. It has also played a huge part in our grief and healing process, to be able to help these loving warm children and Family
