@CellC Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo - A Toast to Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors

Hi Guys,

Glamour and goodwill will come together on Saturday, October 28 for the third time at the Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo 2017 which takes place at the exquisite Inanda Club in Sandton, Johannesburg.

The annual event, presented by Edith Unlimited, seeks to raise funds for Reach for Recovery in support of breast cancer awareness, while at the same time offering guests an incredible day of sportsmanship, entertainment, high-fashion, retail therapy and pampering.

“Part of our role as pillars in our community is to offer our unfailing support to the women of our community who are in need. With one in every 26 women likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, it is up to us to come together to raise funds for those who do not have access to the support and care required to overcome this disease. The Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo 2017 gives us a wonderful opportunity to celebrate everything that makes us uniquely feminine, while taking a stand for those who are not in a position to do so because of their illness,” says CEO of Edith Unlimited, Edith Venter.

Reach for Recovery is a non-profit organisation facilitating the support and care of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, those currently undergoing treatment, as well as those in remission. The initiative’s Ditto Project, aimed at helping women from lower income groups to regain their confidence after diagnosis and surgery, will also benefit from the day’s proceedings.

“Our organisation is built on the simple principle that a woman who has endured and survived the trauma of breast cancer will give freely of her time, experience and care to another woman faced with the same diagnosis.The Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo 2017 proves that in fact this is true of all men and women, and even those whose lives have not been touched by this disease are willing to do what they can in support of women with breast cancer. For this reason, we feel truly honoured to be part of this incredible occasion,” adds Reach for Recovery National Chairperson, Stephane Jacobs.

“The Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo 2017 is in its third tenure and we, as Cell C, are proud sponsors of such an auspicious and elegant event. Cell C’s core focus is women empowerment and an event such as this, is the perfect vehicle to raise awareness and show our support to those women affected by, as well as those victorious, in defeating this disease. We once again look forward to hosting a world-class event in support of a meaningful cause,” concludes Managing Executive of the Cell C Foundation, Suzette van der Merwe.

@MontecasinoZA Makes Mandela Minutes Count #MandelaDay2017 @TsogoSun #TsogoCSR

Hi Guys,

It was all action for Montecasino and Tsogo Sun head office staff, at Diepsloot Primary School no. 4, and further afield on 14 July when hundreds of staff volunteers participated in a wide range of community upliftment projects in celebration of Mandela Day.

Diepsloot Primary School No. 4, which, along with several other Diepsloot schools, has been benefiting from Montecasino’s CSI activities for over four years, saw eager teams of Tsogo Sun volunteers and members of the community, knuckle down to school improvement jobs that included creating a Grade R play area, laying bricks outside the kitchen, refurbishing the school library with books and shelves, and laying grass outside and erecting a canopy on the early childhood development Edutainer classroom that was donated and installed by Tsogo Sun in March this year.

Back at the Montecasino precinct and adjacent Head Office, staff packed items already donated by employees and blankets knitted for Precious Babies, which provides newborn hampers for disadvantaged mothers leaving hospital with their babies. The books that had been collected over many weeks were also packed up and delivered to Diepsloot Primary School No. 4 and Itirele-Zenzele Secondary School for their libraries.

In the Montecasino Bird Gardens, orphans from Barkston Place were treated to a tour of the gardens, a Flight of Fantasy show, and a delicious lunch. Volunteers also invested their Mandela minutes at the Society for Animals in Distress, where they provided whatever help the welfare care for animals organisation needed, while others joined Tsogo Sun’s Sandton Convention Centre team in packing at the massive Stop Hunger Now Meal Packaging Event.

 Mike Page, newly appointed GM at Montecasino, was impressed at the range of Mandela Day initiatives and the commitment by his staff to make a difference. “Our aim is to ensure that every visitor to Montecasino has a memorable experience. This Mandela Day, we took that a step further, and did our best to give many disadvantaged children and adults in our local communities something good, something they will remember with happiness.”

Adds Shanda Paine, Tsogo Sun Group CSI Manager, “Giving and sharing among disadvantaged communities – from the top levels of our organisation right through the ranks – has become a deep-rooted part of the Tsogo Sun mindset as a whole. It’s so encouraging to see that every year we seem to do better than the year before, and our Mandela Day minutes add up to a significant contribution to improving society.”
