This year, the annual Night of a Thousand Stars which was hosted on Friday 25 August, was a resounding success. More than 400 people attended the glittering event with an “ Out of Africa” theme. Various restaurants and caterers served a delicious three-course meal to patrons in beautifully set tables in the middle of Sonpark Boulevard.
The Soweto String Quartet provided excellent entertainment and the evening was enjoyed by everyone. The auction, corporate challenge, raffle and ticket sales were the fundraising elements of the evening, and an astounding R230 000 was raised for CANSA at the event.
The main sponsors of the event were Sonpark, SPAR Lowveld, Doug’s Hire and Land Rover. Town Lodge kindly sponsored the accommodation of the Soweto String Quartet.
Winning restaurant of the evening was Magnolia (Best starter and Dessert) and Koos Vermeulen of Koos Kook was the runner-up.
Winner of the best main course was Turn n Tender.
