The Caring Saints’ inaugural Music in the Park fund-raising event held at Hlanganani Park on Saturday was a massive success.
With a stacked line-up of local performers and a minimal R40 entry fee, the newly established South Coast Christian non-provit organisation managed to meet their target and raise R3500, which will go towards assisting the less fortunate.
The event saw performances from Kan Burne, Jade Green, Taryn Burne, Oscar Swanlund, Charelle Hurd, Ian Slietman, Chantel Nel from Resonant Movement Fire Pio, Lindsay Freeman Osbourn from Lindsay’s School of Ballet, Talitha van Dyk Helberg from In Motion Dance Academy, Samantha Keeve and Sista T and her Drumming Circle.
Caring Saints founding member Van Edwards told eHowzit: “For our first event, we were blessed with amazing weather, talented dancers and musicians and an outstanding crowd of supporters.
“Whilst the parents were being entertained by talented South Coasters, the kids were riding horses, making sand art, paintball shooting or playing with the rabbits.
“None of this would have been possible without our sponsors eHowzit, Als Cartage, Nu Form, Mad Ant Entertainment, Wolf Security, HCS, 2 The Tee, Lance Drummond, Tony Golden, all the acts for sponsoring us their talents and Hlanganani Park.
“Due to the amazing feedback we have received, we’re planning another Music in the Park event in December. A date will be confirmed at a later stage.
“Follow us on our Facebook page for updates and to see how we use the funds raised to fulfil the needs of the less fortunate.”
