On Saturday 8th May 2021, PE Pearls LC19 held a very successful Fundraiser Dinner & Auction at De’Keg, Sunridge Village (the old Keg & Swan). Tickets were sold at R160 per person, which included a 2 course meal and white elephant auction.
The evening started off with drinks as everyone mingled and got to know each other better. Guests were then given a choice of chicken schnitzel or hake and chips for dinner.
After enjoying our main course, we started our auction, with Sonel as our designated Auctioneer. Everyone who attended brought along a white elephant item or two which were duly auctioned off to raise funds to be utilize on an ongoing basis for our various beneficiaries and projects.
We took a short break and enjoyed malva pudding with custard for dessert while being entertained by Brendon with his guitar and beautiful singing voice, whereafter the auction continued along with a lot of laughter and merriment.
We auctioned off everything from photo frames to LED lights, paintings, bottles of wine, shooter glasses and games, ornaments, and handbags, we even had an antique Russian kettle, a stuffed lama and a couple of unicorns.
After wrapping things up we closed the evening off with a raffle draw, congratulations to Hennie van der Linde on winning a bucket full of goodies including 2 bottles of wine, coffee mugs, fragrances and more.
PE Pearls LC19 would like to thank De’Keg for hosting this event and for the great food, music and service provided to us. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took the time out of their busy schedules to join us and the unmeasurable support that you showed us. We cannot do what we do without your help and we cannot thank you enough.
This really was a great, fun-filled, very entertaining event and we will definitely do this again in future.
