THE PRINCESS PROJECT CHARITY EVENT
We were so excited to be involved with this charity event that took place on Tuesday, 17th October 2017.
Princess Diamonds, a fabulous jeweller in Cape Town, had a great idea to brings friends and colleagues together for a canapè party. It was a huge success as guests were so generous with their donations. The rails were filled with dresses, shoes and handbags. All items were then donated to The Princess Project. This organization collects dresses and donates them to underprivileged girls to wear at their matric dance. Adding a little sparkle to girls year!
“An unusual idea, but (hopefully) one of great importance. I started the year with determination to REALLY make a difference in someone’s life – Came up with the idea of sponsoring less privileged – (in fact they have nothing) – matriculants that long to feel like a princess at their matric farewell, but do not have the financial capacity to “get dressed” for the occasion. The reality is that they do not attend a function, rather than feeling not ‘fitting in’. The idea is: Let’s all donate ex-evening outfits/wedding dresses/ball gowns, matric farewell outfits (that don’t fit anymore, and you don’t anyway want to be seen in it ever again), etc”
The function was held at a house in Clifton, a stunning evening filled with laughs, smiles and happiness.
Thank you to all who were involved and companies who sponsored a great deal. Two Chefs for the delicious canapes. Bronwyn Tod for the stunning photos. Jen from Gift tree who sponsored prizes.
