Fundraising organisation Life is Precious is hosting a special Gala Evening for Tygerberg Children’s Hospital Oncology Department. The event takes place at 6pm on Saturday 9 February 2019 at the Centre for the Book, Queen Victoria Street in Cape Town.

With a variety of live acts including toe-tapping music and an enthralling hypnotist show, the evening is set to be a memorable occasion.

Born of June’s lively brand of alternative melodies will create an electric atmosphere, while The Grey Violin Duo’s nimble string playing will inspire you. Singer Ameer Hendricks and his velvety smooth vocals will keep you serenaded throughout the evening.

The summer night’s comedy includes the likes of MC Phil De Lange and stand-up comedian Lindy Johnson. Hypnotist Mitchell V plans to wow with a mesmerising hypnotic exhibition.

In addition, Life is Precious will be running competitions, with prizes for lucky winners.

Life is Precious came to life after a successful first comedy fundraiser evening, where over R20 000 was raised for the Groote Schuur Hospital Haematology Department. Their mission is to help the sick, destitute and anyone in need. The inspiration behind Life is Precious is Ferida Dawray – meaning precious. She was a woman of strength who lived her life putting others first. Ferida passed away within a year after being diagnosed with a very rare cancer. Taking the baton from her, her daughter and organiser Hajirah Dawray hosts annual fundraisers in her honour.

So save the date, dress to the nines and join us for an elegant evening of laughter, merriment and delectable cuisine in support of a worthy cause.
