All in the name of charity, R7 500 will get you the opportunity to dine with these stars, not on TV but in real life.
The United Nations Children’s Fund’s first fund-raising gala in South Africa will make it a reality in order to raise funds for children in need.
Consequently, Unicef will host its inaugural fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Hotel‚ in Rosebank‚ Johannesburg on May 6.
Also on the programme for the evening event is a fashion show by designer Gavin Rajah and a live auction.
Unicef’s spokesperson Sandra Bisin said the dinner and Chopra’s SA visit will highlight its global campaign on violence against children.
“Ms Priyanka Chopra served as Unicef national ambassador in India for nearly 10 years and was recently appointed a goodwill ambassador.
“The gala dinner will be a key public advocacy moment to call on everyone in SA to end violence against children and create circles of care and protection in their homes and communities.
“To strengthen the progress made by South Africa in child protection and forge government-led protective services‚ Unicef relies 100% on voluntary donations. The proceeds from the event will solely benefit children that are vulnerable to adverse socio-economic conditions and particularly those affected by disabilities,” added Bisin.
Former beauty queen and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra will be the chief guest at the dinner alongside other television personalities including – Jo-Ann Strauss and performer Zakes Bantwini.
Thus, fans can get a chance to see these TV stars by dipping their hands deep inside their pockets. Four tables are available at R75 000 each. In addition, another table is available at R50 000 and seats at R5000 each.
