The 28th September 2013 was a big day for South Africa – the Springboks were playing against Australia in the finals of the International Rugby Tour, and to Cape Town’s delight, they were playing at Newlands.
Rugby matches at Newlands are particularly busy days at Forries, and a match of this magnitude was expected to be one of the best with supporters of both sides coming out in droves.
Forries decided that this was the ideal opportunity to garner some interest for our chosen charities – those that are involved with SAVING OUR RHINOS.With the generous help of our sponsors and other eager and willing helpers, Forries was able to put together 20 hampers, filled with an interesting collection of exotic wines, beers and paraphernalia, and also a Weber braai! – all of which were raffled off with proceeds going to the charities.
In addition to the hampers, there were other fun events organized, the proceeds of which also went to the charities.
It was hugely successful. Forries collected a whopping R17,000!!
Warm thanks to all our generous sponsors and customers.
