Dear SAAC-Western Cape Member

Happy New Year and welcome to our second edition of the SAACI-Western Cape newsletter.                                                      

We trust that you had a wonderful break over the festive season and are back at the office, ready for what 2020 has to offer.

On 30 October 2019 we hosted our last event for the year at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.  We were delighted to have Charissa Bloomberg as our speaker as well as our new CEO, Glenton De Kock.  For the festive season the committee tried to give back and chose the Sarepta AGS Old Age Home in Kuilsriver to support.

After discussions with them and hearing that many of the residents did not have families, we initiated a drive to collect 139 pairs of pyjamas to give to the residents as a Christmas present. With the help of you, our dedicated  members, your families and colleagues we were able to make this a reality.  On Friday, 6 December we delivered  the gifts as well as 140 cupcakes that were given to the residents at teatime.  Thank you to The Kove Collection for providing the cupcakes – and on Christmas Day each resident received a present. 


Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for the invitation to the February kick-off event.  

Yours in business events

We hope that you had a wonderful festive season and that 2020 will be a fantastic year!
