Support a great cause

Stakeholders at last year's Pennies for Princesses.

The 7th Annual Pennies for Princesses event, held in honour of national Women’s Day, will take place at Cape Point Vineyards, on Saturday August 12.

The event, an initiative of Cape Community Newspapers, which publishes Northern News and its 14 sister titles, aims to raise awareness about women’s issues – and much-needed funds for organisations which assist women in need.

Over the years Ons Plek shelter for girls, the Community Intervention Centre, the Mitchell’s Plain Network Opposing Abuse, the Saartjie Baartman Centre for women and children, the Khayelitsha-based Grandmothers Against Poverty and Aids, and Dews of Quietness have benefited from this fundraising event.

This year we are inviting our readers and supporters of our event to nominate a beneficiary they feel needs a helping hand.

At this year’s lunch function at the picturesque Cape Point Vineyards in Noordhoek, you can enjoy entertainment and talks focused on nutrition and health, what it’s like to run your own business and be inspired by women who are working to make a difference in their community.

Each guest will go home with a goody bag and the knowledge that she has helped make a difference in the lives of women in need.

Ticket are currently on sale, at R280 each. To book, send an email to acmcompetitions@inl.co.za with the number of tickets you would like to book. There is a maximum of 10 tickets per booking.
